Lesaffre has developed a range of functional ingredients to enhance the shelf life properties of baked products, ensuring that they remain deliciously soft right down to the last crumb.
In order to avoid drying out and starch retrogradation, several active principles, including enzymes, emulsifiers, hydrocolloids and humectants, can be used individually, but combining them is usually the best solution.
A tailored blend of reducing agents, oxidants, enzymes and emulsifiers; bread improvers optimise the functional characteristics of bread by significantly changing the way dough acts at each stage of the bread-making process.
Our improvers are developed and tested in actual conditions and everyday usage. Flour quality, manufacturing processes, the equipment used, regulatory requirements and the type of final product are all considered. Our experts are experienced technical bakers and formulators who understand dough structure, flour characteristics, and the production challenges facing bakers every day
