Lesaffre technical staff can provide advice on the optimum formulation and processing required for different permutations of frozen and retarded products, including:

  • Un-proofed frozen: Prove and bake after thawing
  • Partially-proofed frozen: Ready to bake
  • Part-baked frozen: Thaw and bake; or ready to bake
  • Un-proofed retarded bulk dough: Divide, mould, proof and bake
  • Un-proofed retarded moulded dough: Prove and bake
  • Proofed retarded moulded dough: Ready to bake
 
The right choice of flour is vital. It is necessary to strengthen the flour to ensure proper gas retention during thawing and fermentation. This strengthening phase is especially important given the long storage time. The levels of oxidants and gluten must be enhanced. The use of some enzymes will, for example, help promote an increase in volume in the case of baguettes without resulting in stickiness. While other enzymes will help to reduce stickiness in dough. Some emulsifiers may also be recommended for strengthening the dough structure. Some Lesaffre Frozen bread improvers are formulated using hydrocolloids as well as raw ingredients and enzymes promoting rapid browning in crusty breads. A specific anti-flaking solution has also been developed and patented by Lesaffre for the frozen baked process.
