Sharing oils and fats expertise with the bakery sector

03 June 2014

AAK (UK) Ltd has developed a series of training programmes for food manufacturers to help them develop new products, improve current products and achieve business goals.

The AAK Academy was created to share the company’s knowledge of fats and functional ingredients with its customers.

AAK has many years experience relating to the chemistry and properties of lipids – oils and fats derived from vegetable sources as well as extensive knowledge of lipid chemistry, properties and applications, as well as potential modifications.

The AAK Academy allows the company to share this knowledge, enabling customers to get the very best out of its ingredients, while developing improved products in terms of taste, texture, shelf life and cost.
Courses cover everything from lipid manufacture and chemistry to processing methods and the role of lipids in our diet and their effect on texture and taste. The courses include practical sessions and demonstrations at AAK’s application laboratories in Hull as well as sites in Sweden and Denmark. Alternatively, AAK can deliver courses on-site for customers that have such a requirement.
