DEFIANCE, OHIO — SensoryEffects has acquired certain assets developed by Emulsion Technology, Inc. and owned by Food Ingredient Technologies, L.L.C. The assets include the product line of proprietary and specialty food emulsifiers sold under the Encap brand.

Food manufacturers may use the Encap emulsified powder systems to enable the transition from trans fat-based formulas that are based on shortening to oil-based formulations for use in foam-baked foods such as cakes, muffins, donuts and icing. The SensoryEffects plant in Defiance will manufacture the emulsifier systems.

“These products are unique functional emulsifier systems, and as part of the SensoryEffects business, the Encap technology will be further developed and supported as a new platform for growth in the company,” said Charles Nicolais, president of SensoryEffects.
