Donut Holes with Salted Caramel Sauce
Courtesy of Emily Ellyn – more at
Makes: 40 donut holes

Donut Dough
1 cup water
5 tbsp interesterified high oleic soybean oil shortening
1 tbsp sugar
¼ tsp salt
1 cup flour
2 large eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 gal interesterified high oleic soybean oil shortening, for frying
zest of one orange

Doughnut Topping
½ cup sugar
½ tsp ground cinnamon

Salted Caramel Sauce
¾ cup interesterified high oleic soybean oil shortening
1 ½ cups light brown sugar, firmly packed
2 tbsp water
1 tsp salt
½ cup to ¾ cup evaporated milk or heavy cream
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp orange extract


  1. In a small heavy-bottom sauce pan bring water, shortening, sugar, and salt to a boil while continually whisking.
  2. Reduce heat to medium and whisk in flour until thoroughly incorporated and there are no lumps. Remove from heat.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk eggs and then add a tablespoon of the hot flour mixture and quickly whisk into eggs. Then add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and whisk to thoroughly incorporate. Finally, add vanilla extract and orange zest and whisk together until the dough comes together into a pate choux consistency.
  4. Scrape dough into a large pastry bag fitted with a star-shaped pastry tip.
  5. On a sheet tray lined with parchment paper, pipe doughnut circles onto the parchment paper.
  6. While doughnuts are slightly drying, heat interesterified high oleic soybean oil shortening in a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F on a candy thermometer. (Or you can drop one of the doughnuts in the oil, if it sizzles and immediately rises to the surface, the oil is ready.)
  7. Prepare cinnamon-sugar topping in large bowl by mixing sugar and cinnamon together. Reserve to side.
  8. Fry doughnuts by gently lifting from parchment with hand or spatula and gently dropping into the hot oil. The doughnuts should immediately float to the top and puff up. Then use a metal spoon or spatula to carefully flip them over to the other side. Remove doughnuts with tongs as they’re golden brown on both sides (this should take less than one minute in total). Transfer the doughnuts one at a time into the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Use your hands to coat well with the cinnamon-sugar and transfer to a plate.
  9. Serve warm with caramel sauce and enjoy!

Salted Caramel Sauce:

  1. Add interesterified high oleic soybean oil shortening, brown sugar, water, and salt to medium saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring until butter melts.
  2. Bring to boil for 5 min (it will bubble a lot!), stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in ½ cup evaporated milk or heavy cream and orange extract. Add additional evaporated milk or heavy cream to reach desired consistency. Allow the mixture to boil for 1 min. It will rise in the pan as it boils.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in 1 tsp of salt, cool slightly, and pour the caramel into a bowl to use as dip for the doughnuts, or pour sauce into a jar and refrigerate for keeps. Keeps refrigerated for up to two weeks.

Video: Natural Colors at IFT16 Food Expo

Sunday, July 17th, 2016

Color plays a big role in our enjoyment of food, which is why it’s often said that we eat with our eyes. Consumers definitely seek out bold, beautifully colored foods and beverages. But more and more, they want these colors to come from natural sources. And that can require some new approaches to product formulation. Mary Ellen Kuhn, executive editor of Food Technology magazine, talks to Naturex (booth 2651) and Sensient (booth 1631) about some of the options that product developers have for keeping it colorful—and natural.

VIDEO: Sweetener Solutions at IFT15

Monday, July 13th, 2015

American consumers are increasingly vigilant when it comes to looking at food and beverage labels to see if they contain certain ingredients. Not surprisingly, sweeteners are a focus due to their calorie counts, artificial versus natural personas and health perceptions. How does this impact food and beverage companies’ strategic initiatives and new products? Kelly Hensel, Senior Digital Editor of Food Technology magazine, talks to Tate & Lyle and Cargill about their innovative sweetener solutions on display at IFT15.

VIDEO: Healthy Grains at IFT15

Monday, July 13th, 2015

Take a Transformative Journey Through the Digestive Process

Sunday, July 12th, 2015

Predicting at the Transformation LabAre you a cruncher, chewer, smoosher, or sucker? Get the answer to that question by visiting the IFT Transformation Lab: A Journey From the Inside (Booth 5535) on the food expo floor.

This brand-new exhibit is designed to take those who experience it on a multisensory journey through the digestive process. The journey begins at the mouth of the Transformation Lab, where visitors are asked to take a quick mouth behavior survey to determine which of the four aforementioned mouth behaviors (crunching, chewing, smooshing, or sucking) best characterizes their approach to mastication. Product samples that reflect the preferences of individuals according to their mouth behavior are featured in this area of the exhibit, which is sponsored by JBMB, a company that specializes in mouth behavior.

Zone two of the Transformation Lab focuses on the stomach and features a gastric simulator to help illustrate the way that the stomach breaks food down, mixing it with acid and enzymes to help release nutrients that are later absorbed in the small intestine, says IFT member R. Paul Singh, a University of California, Davis, distinguished professor emeritus and expert on the role of the stomach in food digestion. With his colleagues, Singh prepared the exhibits featured in zone two. He will be on hand in zone two periodically during the course of the food expo, and he also played a role in the conceptualization of the Transformation Lab.

Zone three of the lab offers insights on the small intestine and how various foods affect the gut microbiome. Experts will be available to discuss the gut microbiome, and a video will help explain some of the science behind it.

Health and wellness is the focus of zone four, which zeroes in on market and product development trends as they affect four key population segments: infants, adolescents, adults, and older adults. Zone four is sponsored by Innova Market Insights and features data from the research firm. At the conclusion of the Transformation Lab experience, visitors are asked to respond to a survey on what they found most engaging and informative about the experience.

The Transformation LabThroughout the course of IFT15, Transformation Lab staffers will be Tweeting out updates on the percentage of booth visitors who fall into each of the four mouth behavior categories. The display also highlights some of the IFT15 scientific and applied sessions that relate to digestion and gut health.

“At IFT15, the technical sessions and exhibits shown in the expo demonstrate how scientific approaches have led to creating numerous food products with health benefits for the consumer,” says Singh. “The Transformation Lab helps extend that discussion to the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, where nutrients are released from the food and transferred into a human body. By visiting the Transformation Lab, attendees of IFT15 will get a more informed understanding of the fate of foods in the GI tract.”

The Transformation Lab was developed by Freeman XP, part of the exhibit services company that teams with IFT on the annual event, with scientific input provided by IFT member volunteers.

Four Innovations That Should Turn Heads

Sunday, July 12th, 2015

Whether your needs are related to ingredients, technology or operations, the food expo offers ample opportunities to explore new developments. Some of these advancements may even turn your head, such as the winners of the 2015 IFT Food Expo Innovation Award.

At a special presentation on Sunday morning at IFT15: Where Science Feeds Innovation, IFT President-Elect Colin Dennis announced and presented four companies with the 2015 IFT Food Expo Innovation Award. The winners are Aseptia Technologies, Corbion, Ecolab, and Parabel.

2015 IFT Food Expo Innovation Award“Now in its ninth year, the Food Expo Innovation awards program is a showcase for amazing advancements in our profession,” said Dennis. “Exclusive to companies exhibiting at the IFT15 Food Expo, these awards honor outstanding innovation in products, ingredients, technologies, instrumentation, equipment, and services that were commercially introduced since January 1st of 2014.”

A panel of nine jurors from industry, academia, and government with broad expertise in research & product development, processing & packaging technology, and food safety selected the four companies and their innovations from 47 qualified entries. Judging criteria included degree of innovation, technical advancement, benefits to food manufacturers and consumers, and scientific merit.

Aseptia Technologies (booth 232) captured the 2015 IFT Food Expo Innovation Award for its AseptiWave Modular Advanced Thermal Processing Systems, which utilize microwave-assisted advanced thermal processing to deliver superior product quality for aseptically packaged foods and beverages.

AseptiWave is a family of advanced thermal processing systems with a built-in, extensively and robustly tested scale-up strategy and controllability at pilot plant (2–4 gal/min), intermediate (10–20 gal/min), and high (20–40 gal/min) industrial throughput levels.

Corbion (booths 1218/1221) won the award for its Ultra Fresh Premium Advantage Enzyme Blend, which extends the shelf life, freshness, taste and flavor of bread while enabling the reduction of some ingredients, such as added sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and yeast.

The bio-based enzyme’s ability to extend shelf life seven or more days may enable bakeries to expand distribution to new geographies or potentially expand to new outlets such as convenience, drug and dollar stores. In the consumer’s pantry, the extra shelf life may translate to reduced waste.

Ecolab (booth 1950) was honored for its DrySan Duo Two-Step, No-Rinse Cleaner & Sanitizer, which is designed for dry and low-moisture processing environments. The product reduces cleaning time by eliminating the use of rinse water between cleaning and sanitizing.

Plant trials using DrySan Duo showed an average 30% reduction in total cleaning time compared to traditional wet cleaning methods. The trials also demonstrated equivalent performance to traditional wet cleaning utilizing aerobic plate count and Enterobacteriacea test methods.

Parabel (booth 126) received the 2015 IFT Food Expo Innovation Award for its LENTEIN Plant Protein, which is derived from water lentils. The highly digestible protein has an amino acid profile comparable to whey protein and is claimed to be higher in essential amino acids and branched chain amino acids than any other plant protein.

The product contains 65–70% concentrated high-quality plant protein and omega-3 fatty acids, is high in carotenoids, and rich in antioxidants. It is highly dispersible and has excellent foaming attributes. Applications include beverages, chips, crackers, and bars.

At Monday morning’s General Session and Keynote featuring Mike Walsh in Ballroom S100 at 8:30–10 am, a video of the four winners will be shown to the audience, providing more details on the advances and applications of these inventive products.
