Kek Lapis, literally means “layered cake” in Bahasa Malaysia, is a traditional cake from Sarawak, Malaysia. The cake itself exists as an exquisite piece of art make by talented cake artists, living among the ordinaries. In Sarawak, Kek Lapis is baked and served on religious or cultural celebrations such as Eid al-Fitr (End of Ramadhan), Christmas Day, Deepavali, birthdays and weddings.

The famous kek lapis from Sarawak originally comes from Malaysia’s neighbour – Indonesia. In Indonesia, the layer cake is named Lapis Legit. In the history, the Betawi people came to Sarawak and has passed down the artistry to the locals. Kek lapis was later being innovated by the Sarawak people with new ingredients, flavours and colour to get what it is being called the Sarawak Kek Lapis now. The Sarawak layer cake evolved over decades and adapted new motif and patterns inspired by the Western cake-making cultures.

bottle-e1518360114323.png

Searching the internet about Emulco, it’s not as common as food flavourings or colourings and yet, it’s also not a new thing in the year 2018 as well. However, the use of Emulco has started to gain more attention few years back then, when the word “Emulco” has been started to be adapted by many food ingredient manufacturers.

So what is Emulco actually? In Green House Ingredient, we have given it a comprehensive description of viscous, “syrup-like” liquid made with concentrated flavouring often with an addition of food colouring. Emulcos (stands for “Emul”-Emulsifier; “co”-Colour), literally means a flavour emulsion combined with food colouring, often added into food products to enhance appearance, aroma, flavour, mouthfeel and to retain moistures.

ADVANTAGES OF EMULCO

As Emulcos are the combination of food flavouring and colouring, Emulcos are very convenient and versatile to be used in making food products especially pastries and beverages. Besides that, Emulcos’ existence has had brought many advantages for fellow food manufacturers or even household users such as:

We advise our customers to start with a use of 2% of the total weight of the recipe if they would like to conduct R&D on their own food products.

  • Jellies & Puddings               (0.5 – 2%)
