Good food requires good ingredients. VFI offers a wide range of oils and fats for all uses in the food industry, and for commercial consumers. The highest product safety and the best quality for raw materials are a given. Our research and development team is permanently working on innovative solutions for particular challenges.
So we encounter the latest trends in nutrition early on, and offer suitable products. We also develop tailor-made products for special requirements, together with our customers. VFI is the only manufacturer in Austria to offer AMA-certified rapeseed oil and sunflower oil for commercial consumers.
Our range of organic oils and fats for industrial use is continually being expanded. Bakers and confectioners ensure variation in our diet with their range. The varied range and the demands on the quality of the products require optimum raw materials.
VFI is your specialist for bakery fat, and provides confectioners and bakeries with special fats. We fulfil the requirements in a constantly changing market, and support you in your efforts to comply with the requirements of consumers. With our range of bakery fat, we cover a multitude of areas of use. Our fats increase the enjoyment value of your products, by optimising taste, flavour and mouthfeel.
In acknowledgement of the various manufacturing processes, we achieve a high level of technical adjustability of the cooking fat. Shortcrust, piped and yeast raised baked goods contain a high proportion of fat. The cooking fat gives the baked good a loose structure in the crumb.
For shortcrust pastry production of moulded biscuits and imprinted baked goods , a fat which is not too soft to firm, with the required malleable characteristics is ideal. In this way, the formation of fat blobs and oil leaking out during processing is avoided. For yeast dough , the elasticity of the adhesive structure is improved by adding fat, and in this way, the gas retention capacity, cooking tolerance and the desired baking volume is achieved.
For yeast dough, a malleable, soft fat is required. Madeira cake and sponge cake require a fat with good whipping characteristics. By adding fat, the ingredients are evenly distributed in the dough. Cream fillings require fats, which can bind a great deal of air.
In this way, a light and voluminous mass is produced. Special fats fulfil this requirement, enhance the flavour of the ingredients and increase shelf life with consistent quality. Here, high-quality raw materials are very important for the baking behaviour and the shelf life. Furthermore, the oil in the dough ensures soft crumbs, an appetising shine, appealing volume, and retention of freshness. VFI fats for bakeries and confectioners combine excellent mouthfeel with particularly long lasting taste stability and melting curves adjusted to the requirements.
Our special fats facilitate the processing procedure with further ingredients, due to homogeneous crystallisation. Due to controlled crystallisation after the baking process, fat bloom formation can also be minimised on chocolate coated biscuits, wafers and cakes. D90 range: unhardened baking fats in various degrees of hardness. Also in organic quality or from certified Austrian origin AMA. Ice cream long ago developed from a seasonal product in the summer months, to a year-round article.
The cooling delicacy is a sweet companion all year round. Ice cream on a stick, sundaes, ice cream balls for dessert. Today, there are a multitude of types and presentation forms of ice cream. Manufacturers need optimum raw materials for the production of consistent quality. Innovations are needed to get into the shopping basket of the end consumer.
The most important components in ice cream production are milk, milk components, sugar or sugar substitute, fruits, flavourings and fat. With the exception of water ice and sorbets, fat, milk fat, or vegetable fat is crucial for the structure of the ice cream, the creamy consistency, and melting characteristics.
With special fats from VFI, ice cream gets a particularly delicate melting, and fine, creamy consistency. These special VFI fat compositions enable the adjustment of the fatty acid profile in the ice cream.
Due to modern manufacturing procedures and adapted emulsifier systems, the percentage of saturated fatty acids can be reduced without loss of flavour. This healthier, and also more cost-effective solution compared to milk fat, has a positive influence on the melting process, whereby a creamier ice cream is produced.
Due to special additives in the vegetable fat mixture, the particularly soft and creamy characteristics of soft ice cream can also be achieved. Chocolate glaze, cocoa glaze or fat glaze — we like to refine ice cream, both visually and in terms of taste. The fat used influences the crunchiness of the glaze, the adherence of the coating to the product, and ensures the delicate melting in the mouth.
The optimised fat components prevent crack formation and breaking of the glaze. Ice cream toppings make sundaes nicer and more appealing, and also taste delicious. VFI has the right fat blends for excellent toppings. Wafer horns and ice cream wafers remain crunchy when they are impregnated with a very thin, invisible film of fat.
This spray fat also helps to fix and stabilise ice cream creations. The ice cream even retains its appetising appearance even after storage and transport. Vegetable oils and vegetable fats enable the optimisation of sausage and meat products with regards to aspects of healthy diet.
Sausages where the high level of animal fats is replaced by healthy vegetable oils, offer a welcome alternative for end consumers. The use of vegetable oils enables new recipes for sausages, with a lower saturated fatty acid level, in terms of nutritional physiology. Special marinade fats serve as the basis for spice preparations and help the even distribution of herbs and spices in frying and grilling marinades.
Poultry sausages and light sausages with vegetable fat offer optimised fatty acid profiles and can also be produced to kosher and halal quality.
Recipe-dependant components such as diced bacon from pork, can be replaced by suitable vegetable fats. We particularly use fats that are similar in the melting behaviour of the mouthfeel to animal fats. Equally, further single origin sausage products made of beef and game can be produced with special vegetable fats. The market for vegan and vegetarian sausage and meat products is growing constantly. Our range includes specially conceived vegetable oils and vegetable fats for vegan meat replacement products.
The VFI fats enhance the taste and ensure a pleasant mouthfeel. Scalded sausages and cooked sausages obtain a nutritionally optimal fatty acid profile, with the addition of vegetable oils. The taste is also improved by the addition of the right vegetable fats. Sausage is one of the oldest processed foods of mankind, and is an important and popular part of our diet. More than 1, sausage varieties require constant innovation and further development from the butchery trade. There is an equal amount of challenges to overcome in the area of vegetarian and vegan meat and sausage production, as in the manufacture of halal-certified and kosher sausages.
Food intolerances and diets cause additional uncertainty amongst consumers. VFI supports you with specially developed vegetable oils and fats, which make production easier for you, and promote the objective of your company.
Our experts develop suitable fat recipes, together with customers, in order to achieve exactly the desired nutritional values in the end product. Spice marinades are important for presentation and sales promotion of fresh meat. Marinade fats from VFI ensure that the spices are kept in suspension, and that there is no separation or clump formation.
The marinade adheres to the meat across a wide temperature range and does not melt away. The marinade gives the meat a fresh, appetising shine on the counter, and optimally enhances the spices. Today, dairy products can be enhanced with vegetable fats and oils, on the basis of nutritional and functional reasons. Milk fat and butter fat are completely or partially exchanged or replaced.
Vegetable fats and oils are subject to less variation in quality and availability than animal products. This contributes to product stability and independence with regards to season and time of year. Cost reduction and production-related advantages are very often the motives for replacing milk fat and butter fat with vegetable oils or fats, or special mixtures.
By changing the recipes, certain desired effects can be achieved in production. In cheese manufacture , aspects ranging from the stability of the product to the production of special flavours and mouthfeel, are considered.
Good spreadability and quick adjustment to room temperature, with optimum taste development are positive effects of adding high-quality fats and oils. For the redevelopment and production of reduced cholesterol products , it is very important to achieve an improved fatty acid profile.
This means that, due to the reduction of milk components on the one hand, and the addition of high-quality vegetable oils and fats on the other hand, dairy products with an increased percentage of valuable, multiple non-hydrogenated fatty acids are produced. For marinated cream cheese balls, vegetables and antipasti specialities , the oil must remain clear in all situations, and must not become cloudy, even in the fridge.
For this reason, it is not recommended to use single origin olive oil. VFI oils have a pleasant, neutral taste, which enhances the flavours of the marinated specialities. In VFI oils they are perfectly preserved and offer an appetising view. VFI range of vegetable fats and vegetable oils for milk products and marinated goods.
With our range of special vegetable fats and vegetable oils for milk processing companies, we can fulfil almost any wish, and are happy to deal with special and new challenges.

ARA and PK range: milk fat replacer with a lauric base for vegetable-based cream and white cheeses.
Butter sales reached their highest level in decades as reviews of past research by some scientists now suggest there is no basis for implicating saturated fat in heart disease. The research reviews have generated much controversy with highly regarded nutrition authorities concerned that the conclusions are irresponsible and will result in consumers abandoning decades of moderation and good judgment or maybe just guilt when it comes to selecting dietary fats and the foods that contain them. In reality, there is a strong case to be made that other factors matter a lot more to consumers in relation to dietary sources of fats and oils than a distant threat of heart disease. Even if the latest scientific studies and reviews had confirmed a direct link between saturated fat and heart disease, it can be argued that these younger consumers might very well have made the same purchase decisions anyway. In addition to the fact that flavor and taste has always been the primary decision-making criterion when it comes to food products, younger consumers, who are generally very interested in health and wellbeing, demonstrate much greater concern about making choices that also reflect their values, such as choosing foods that have been minimally processed without additives and that contain organic and GMO-free ingredients, accompanied by short and simple ingredient lists.

Types of Fats and Oils
Fats are one of the three main macronutrients , along with carbohydrates and proteins. Examples include cholesterol , phospholipids , and triglycerides. The terms lipid , oil , and fat are often confused.
The specialty oils market was valued at USD Another growth factor can be the increase in the consumption of confectionery and processed foods. Confectionery fats are one of the major food sources of trans-fat. The consumption of trans-fatty acids is strongly associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases and cancer. As a result, there are more regulations on the usage of liquid oils used directly in sweet goods and icings. One of the driving factors for the increasing use of specialty fats is their enhanced rheological properties such as viscosity, which facilitates efficient production of confectionery products. High-income countries such as the UK, Canada, the US, Germany, and Spain have experienced growth in the production and consumption of ultra-processed food, mainly bakery products such as bread, pastries, cakes, and cookies, in the past few years. Shortenings, creaming fats, and specialty oils, such as cake oils, are increasingly used to enhance the product performance and to ensure higher consumer acceptance. These factors have accelerated the growth of this segment. High stability oils in the liquid form help in the efficient, fast, and smooth manufacturing of confectionery and bakery products.
Margarine and fat products

Although the units are somewhat different, this is about 26 times more energy than for a person consuming a recommended 2,calorie diet. Concentrates are higher in energy density than forages, but adequate dietary effective fiber is needed to maintain rumen function, so concentrates need to be limited in the diet. Thus, one of the primary purposes of feeding supplemental fat to dairy cows is to increase energy intake. Fats are higher in energy density than carbohydrates and proteins; therefore, adding fat increases the energy density of the diet. At the same time, feed intake must be maintained; otherwise, an increase in energy intake may not occur. Feeding excessive amounts, especially unsaturated fat, can reduce feed intake and occasionally energy intake. Please check this link first if you are interested in organic or specialty dairy production. Some of the common sources of fats fed to dairy cows are listed in Table 1.

Florin AG's services start with procurement of the right starting material — the correct raw materials. As a specialist for the production of oils and fats, we meet the most diverse requests with ease — including the demand for sustainable and traceable raw materials, domestically grown oil seeds or kosher products. Oils, fats and margarines can all have a decisive impact on the characteristics of food — whether crispy, creamy, crunchy or smooth. They all display very different behaviours when it comes to taste, oxidation, melting and smoke point.
Feeding Fat, in Moderation, to Dairy Cows
Storing fats and oils long term requires defining "long term" - which I'll do in a moment. The problem with storing any fats and oils is oxidation — exposure to oxygen causes rancidity. Rancidity has been implicated as a cause of cancer a carcinogen , heart disease, and arteriosclerosis.
