Additionally, health concerns, consumer demands and legislation have led to the reduction or removal of trans fatty acids and, indeed, reduction in the percentage of saturated fatty acids from these products. This has left many producers with the challenge of handling a recipe that has a slower crystallisation speed which results in a change in the vital consistency of the product.
