Quality and hygiene/safety control

Our delicious cakes, cupcakes or cookies must be safe by all means. We maintain strict standards and to always maintain a safe environment, we maintain quality and hygiene control. All of Irresistible Cakes’ products are nut free, lactose free, trans fat free and free from all animal (except egg) derived products (like gelatine, meat etc.).

 

Nut Free Facility

Our facility is totally nut free. All our fine ingredients are free from nuts, including peanut. Our favorite flavors, Hazel Nut Expresso and Chocolate Baci are also free from nuts!

 

As per first-ever nationwide study, One in every 13 Canadian suffers from a significant food allergy and nut allergy is most common. According to the research, about 2.5 million Canadians suffer from food allergies, or about 7.5 per cent of the population.

They include:

  • 1.93 per cent with peanut allergy;
  • 2.36 per cent with tree nut allergy

 

Lactose Free Crusted

Our special crusted is prepared in our facility with a special recipe by controlling stick process parameters. Our crusted is very popular and no one can beat our quality and special taste. We use lactose free milk instead of normal milk.

 

Lactose intolerance is the inability to digest the milk sugar lactose, causing gastrointestinal symptoms of flatulence, bloating, cramps, and diarrhea in some individuals. This results from a shortage of the lactase enzymes which break down lactose into its simpler forms, glucose and galactose.

As per Global Lactose Intolerance Statistics, approximately 33% of people are lactose intolerant, although some 75% of adults exhibit decreased lactase activity. As per Canadian Digestive Health Foundation, lactose intolerance affects more than 7 million Canadians. This is likely an underestimate as many individuals do not associate their symptoms with lactose-containing foods or do not experience symptoms.

 

Trans fat free Ingredients

Trans fat is a type of fat found in foods that increases our risk for heart disease.

In our cake mixes, butter cream or crusted we always use polyunsaturated or monounsaturated oil or fat. We use canola oil and shortening made from vegetable oils without any hydrogenation. We never use highly saturated butter or any hydrogenated products. Our products have zero trans-fat or zero cholesterol.

 

The World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended that the total amount of trans fats consumed per day should be less than 1% of your daily energy intake. According to Health Canada, Canadians’ consumption of trans fats has declined by 40 per cent over the past decade (from 8.4 g per day to 4.9 g), but many Canadians are still eating too much trans fat!

 

Free from Animal Derived Products and Alcohol

All of Irresistible Cakes’ products are guaranteed free from all animal (except egg) derived Products. Our products are completely free from gelatine, meat and alcohol. For your information, our Rum flavor is also free from alcohol! Our egg less cakes / vegan cakes are free from eggs.

 

Food Safety and Hygiene

We maintain the hygiene control system in our work area where all points (contamination sources) in the process that may lead to problems, such as food poisoning, are focused on, so that accidents are prevented and the situation is improving.

 

We maintain proper hygiene system by a proper method of hand washing, sanitation, cleaning of utensils/equipment and proper process control parameters.

To control over contamination of foreign substances, we introduced apply of hairnet, control over the use of pins, clips etc.

 

 

Quality Control and Inspection

Irresistible Cakes always focus on quality of products. Proper process control and fine ingredients are helping us to continual improvement of quality. We are improving our system by analyzing root causes, brain storming programs, proper preventive and corrective action plans. We reduced nonconformities by introducing our strong quality system and training to our staff. Our in-process and final product inspections leads towards zero defects of our products. We also introduced many techniques to improve our system like, Kaizen (improvements) by participating all employees, 5S (housekeeping) and Cause and Effect Analysis (Ishikawa Diagram).

 

There is no limit of improvements. Your feedback is very important to us. We value and appreciate receiving your compliments, suggestions or complaints so that we can improve our services and quality.
