MIMETIC is a unique, plant-based specialty fat allowing chefs to create deliciously tasting bakery and patisserie applications with the same taste experience as butter but much easier to work with and less expensive than butter. To replace butter AND to upgrade margarine made products (1-1 replacement). It results from years of R&D and bakers’ expertise and know-how.

100% plant based. 100% butterlike sensation.

Product description

  • MIMETIC is a new generation of specialty fats providing an excellent eating experience (buttery sensation) together with an exceptional workability
  • Superior quality of end-products (croissants, danishes, puff pastries, cakes, soft dough, cookies, short crust)
  • In line with consumer needs (taste, freshness and health) and industrial needs (1-on-1 replacement in recipe), for direct and long shelf life processes and frozen applications

If up to 40% of a recipe is fat, choosing the right fat for your creations is key. Puratos can help you! After years of investigating the formulation of fats, our R&D-teams developed a specialty fat which we called MIMETIC.

It is a unique combination of carefully selected ingredients and a lot of formulation know-how. MIMETIC is a specialty fat offering the perfect answer towards consumer demands (taste, freshness and health) and our customers challenges (workability, convenience, profitability).
