Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery
“The baking and snack industries have begun to address the requirements for non-allergenic and gluten-free ingredients, segments that have been steadily growing over the past few years,” says Mel Festejo, COO of American Key Food Products. “The starch industry has responded and developed not only clean-label starches, but clean-label application formulas to meet the functionality requirements in the bakery and snack food world.
“American Key Food Products, for instance, offers a portfolio of clean-label, non-GMO, non-allergenic and gluten-free products aimed at a number of specialty segments. At the core of this portfolio are potato and tapioca clean-label starches from the Emsland Group. Emsland’s Empure line includes potato- and pea-based, cook-up and instant starches that exhibit functionalities attributed to modified starches and are well-suited for clean-label products. Its Emfix emulsifying starches, meanwhile, can be used to replace egg ingredients in a variety of bakery applications.”
