What makes BASF's Cegepal® unique?

Cegepal® specialty fat powders are designed for powder mixes that require a high content of unsaturated fatty acids. Derived from sunflower or rapeseed oil, our fat powders contain a high proportion of mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids. The intake of these fatty acids is essential because they are needed for several metabolic processes and cannot be produced within the body.

One of our specialty fat powders, is Cegepal® TG 187 CB, contains non-hydrogenated sunflower oil and is especially suitable for dietetic food and other powdered food applications which require optimized fatty acid profiles.

Advantages of our specialty fat powder product range include:

  • Trans-fat content < 1%
  • High content of mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids
  • Low content of saturated fat
  • Suitability in all kinds of powdered food applications

Our Delios® S powder is a premium product including high amounts of medium-chain triglycerides for sports nutrition and dietetic food.
Cegepal® VF HC 77 is ideal for use in desserts such as pudding, ice cream or cream soups. Due to the extremely fine dispersion of fat, VF HC 77 significantly improves creaminess, even in reduced dosages. The cold-dispersible powder is odor-free, neutral in taste and improves the organoleptic properties, creaminess and mouthfeel of the final product.


Our Cegepal® fat powder range lets manufacturers easily incorporate fat into powdered formulations, while also allowing them to promote their products with improved nutritional values. Cegepal® enhances the creamy texture of soups, sauces, filling creams, bakery creams, puddings, ice creams and other desserts.
