This research aimed to develop new hazelnut and pumpkin seed oil‐based creams and to assess the effect of different fat and sugar phases on the structure and physical properties of those creams at different refining degrees. In this study, three novel spreadable creams were prepared in a stirred ball‐mill: CBS with cocoa butter, pumpkin seed oil and saccharose; OS with pumpkin seed oil and carnauba wax‐basedoleogel and saccharose; OLS with oleogel, saccharose and Lucuma powder. OS and CBS creams reached a D90 value lower than 30 μm at 150 min of refining, the OLS cream showed the highest D90 value, with a particle size distribution and a rheological behaviour little affected by the refining time. The OS and CBS creams differed in yield stress, indicating that the attractive particle–particle interactions are affected not only by the particle size, but also by fat composition. Moreover, all the creams showed solid‐like behaviour and a good tolerance to deformation rate, a high oil‐binding capacity and a good physical stability. Thus, it is possible to reformulate spreadable creams with healthier nutritional profiles.

Abstract

This research aimed to develop new hazelnut and pumpkin seed oil‐based creams and to assess the effect of different fat and sugar phases on the structure and physical properties of those creams at different refining degrees. In this study, three novel spreadable creams were prepared in a stirred ball‐mill: CBS with cocoa butter, pumpkin seed oil and saccharose; OS with pumpkin seed oil and carnauba wax‐basedoleogel and saccharose; OLS with oleogel, saccharose and Lucuma powder. OS and CBS creams reached a D90 value lower than 30 μm at 150 min of refining, the OLS cream showed the highest D90 value, with a particle size distribution and a rheological behaviour little affected by the refining time. The OS and CBS creams differed in yield stress, indicating that the attractive particle–particle interactions are affected not only by the particle size, but also by fat composition. Moreover, all the creams showed solid‐like behaviour and a good tolerance to deformation rate, a high oil‐binding capacity and a good physical stability. Thus, it is possible to reformulate spreadable creams with healthier nutritional profiles.
