Ancient grains make a comeback

Ancient grains, like spelt, are some of the hottest trends in the bread business right now.

Enzymes make a big difference when it comes to the volume, elasticity, and freshness of bread made with ancient grains, says Novozymes’ Dr. Sven Schönenberg.

Enzymes have an even greater impact on ancient grains than on white pan bread when it comes to softness, moisture and tenderness.

 

 

Bake the world a better place

Being able to keep baked products fresh, appealing, and healthy is the key to consumers’ hearts. Novozymes is ready to partner with your team to help create sustainable solutions for baked goods.

Freshness

Cut food waste and help bread last longer, boosting shelf life and reducing stale returns. Our enzymes help your customers bake high-quality bread with a tender, moist texture. 

Appealing appearance

Appearance factors like color, crust, and bloom are highly influential when it comes to consumer choice of baked goods. Novozymes’ products can enhance crust color and increase volume from the same amount of flour. 

Healthy lifestyle

Ancient grains are highly appealing to customers looking for simple, fresh, and “free-from” healthy products. Our enzymes can help you provide your customers with products that meet this trend, as well as products that reduce gluten.
