Simple preparation of desserts, ice cream and sauces right at home


The pandemic has turned work and lifestyles upside down in the past two years. Lockdowns have had people spending more time than ever at home. Instead of the cafeteria, we’ve been eating in our own kitchens. And some of us have discovered a new passion for cooking.

There’s a big demand for little kitchen helpers that help home cooks rustle up dishes quickly and easily, whether pudding powders for boiling with sugar and milk, or sauces that just need a quick stir. Convenience solutions are booming around the world, and combine low effort and time savings with delicious indulgence.

In a global perspective, Europe is clearly ahead with 42.9% when it comes to product launches with convenience claims. It is followed by Asia (23.5%), North America (14.1%) and Latin America (12.2%). Product launches in the Middle East & Africa (6.9%) and the Oceanic market (0.3%) were lower.

These new compounds are based on our proven Hydrobest and Stabimuls series stabilising systems, so they’re absolutely dependable. Both the manufacturer and the consumer can refine the desserts and sauces individually by adding their own ingredients. The compounds are also perfect for marketing with additional recipe ideas.
