Abstract

See full text

Fat particles useful in food compositions as doughs, methods of preparing the fat particles, method of preparing the food compositions (e.g., doughs) that contain the fat particles, and methods of preparing a baked food product from the food composition, wherein the fat particles contain flavorant salt. These fat particle can be used to prepare dough formulations that meet the desire of being more healthful than previous dough formulations due to a reduced sodium content, optional more healthful fat content (e.g., low trans fats or low saturated fats), or both. Additionally, the fat particles can be conveniently used in commercial or consumer scale dough processing.
