How does CARLO benefit your end product.

Helping bakers has always veen the mission of Zeelandia. In 1935, CARLO, our first release agent was introduced and it proved its efficiency over the years. With our deep understainding of the bakery ingredients and bakery processes, we have continuously been improving our CARLO products. CARLO is an emulsion, a mixture of oil and water, that can be used to release bread from tins and lighter pastries. During baking, the water in the emulsions evaporates, supporting the formation of a nice golden brown crust that consumers will love.


How to optimise your processes with CARLO.

There are several application methods for integrating the CARLO release agent into your bakery plant. One such method involves the use of spray systems from bazz, which can be applied both before and after use to ensure that the surfaces are thoroughly coated and prevent any adhesion of baked goods. In addition, the use of CARLO release agents can significantly reduce downtime associated with equipment cleaning, leading to improved production efficiency, output, and cost savings.
