Free from added sugar: at Sigep, Galatea’s innovative range of flavourings and pastes

Published on 24 January 2019 | Category: Exhibitions

Is there a natural alternative to sugar for the production of desserts and ice creams?
Is it possible to look after our health and wellbeing without sacrificing flavour?
At the 40th edition of Sigep – the International Trade Show of Artisan Gelato, Pastry, Bakery and the Coffee World – you’d discover that yes, it is possible to make products with low sugar content and fabulous flavour! At the Galatea stand, visitors can explore and sample an innovative line of flavourings and pastes with no added sugar. We wanted to listen and respond to an ever-growing number of consumers who – for reasons of health and wellness – seek and demand products free from refined and artificial sweeteners.

No added sugar: a production possibility

How can we bring together deliciousness and attention to a healthy diet?
Here at Galatea, research is the mainstay of our business: it allows us to offer excellent quality products while listening to – and often anticipating – the demands of the market.
To this end we have fine-tuned a production technique for semi-finished products which uses solely the sugars already present in fruit: a sweetening system based exclusively on the use of natural fibres.
We have succeeded in drastically reducing the sugar level of finished products, without the need for any replacement by synthetic substances.
As you know, here at Galatea we create products that are  #BuoniPerNatura!
Not just sugar-free products at Sigep 2019

At the Galatea stand at Sigep, you can learn about and sample all the products in our range: Libera, Bio, Vegan and Golosa, the delicious pastry line that’s entirely plant-based and gluten-free, and the flavours of Menta Piemontina and Spirulì, coloured naturally thanks to skilful use of ingredients.

Galatea is training too

We know that product quality is fundamental, but we also recognise the value of knowledge geared to achieving specific business goals.
Are you looking for a training course for pastry and gelato?
Do you want to stay constantly up to date with the regulations governing production and trade in the desserts sector?

Come to the trade fair in Rimini!

We’ll be presenting our countless opportunities for professional development and our new programmes, which enable us to support our partners in their journeys to improve and expand their businesses.

Excellence, health and genuineness: the food trends

Published on 1 November 2017 | Category: Exhibitions

The Anuga World Food & Beverage Fair has just completed its biennial edition.

From the 7th to the 11th  October in the Cologne food and beverage salon, Rhineland’s economic and cultural capital, many industry protagonists met together to answer a key question: what taste does the future have?


The German city hosted a vast panorama of top international agribusiness players who discussed and presented the new trends that can be then translated into what everyone carries on his table and eats daily. Cutting-edge trends, inspirational sources and well-outlined guidelines dominated these five days open both to visitors and to exhibitors.

In the foreground the vegan and the organic worlds, two often interconnected realities that pay close attention to choices regarding lifestyles as well as strictly dietary options and reflecting on a good ethical education that overcomes the traditional food concept.

Another element of primary importance in the context of the German fair was the “zero kilometer“: this definition identifies all the products directly purchased in the production area, supporting a short supply chain that favours a policy aimed to sustain the local economy and that promotes the genuineness and the environment.

Another main 2017 Anuga trend is the Smart Label, labels that allow consumers to obtain detailed information about shelf- life, origin, ingredients and allergens of what they are going to buy, setting out a complete overview where each one can consciously direct his choices.

“The general trend is to move towards products that are as much natural as possible, even in the food industry. A strong push in this direction involves emerging countries too, “explains Stefano Pillot, Galatea founder and general manager. To this vision belongs his leading company of semi-finished products for artisanal gelato, which has always been focusing on consumers’ health.

All Galatea product ranges foresee the use of healthy and natural products.  High quality raw materials have nothing to hide: ethical aims became reality thanks to the transparency choice, such as the adoption in 2006 of the “clean label”; labels that inform each customer about what he is eating straight out, ensuring readability in addition to solid and declared values .

The commitment to the nature, the organic and the vegan world has been consolidating at Galatea, transforming itself into a wide range of products capable of delivering craftsmanship gifting both the body and the mind with great benefits and taking care of everyone’s needs.

Thus to the question “how does our future taste?” Galatea’s answer is in one only word: genuine!
