Raps, an innovative spice and flavour concepts provider, will present its new ingredient range for the bakery industry and retail chains at the Iba trade fair in Munich, Germany on 22-26 October.
The focus will be on both ready-to-use fillings and toppings made from high-quality raw materials and functional, microencapsulated ingredients for optimised dough and product properties.
Examples such as “Hot Jalapeno Cheese” or “Oriental Green Pea Mint” and “Ras el hanout” provide an innovative new taste experience, according to Raps. The company also offers herbs and spices in sprinkle or paste format that can be incorporated into dough to give added flavour and an appealing appearance.
Raps’ Coatec process provides functional core materials with a protective layer, “shielding them from external influences such as temperature, moisture and oxidation”.
The technology enables a controlled release of ingredients such as microencapsulated acids and preservatives, which improve the shelf life and dough properties of tortillas, flatbreads, sandwich and toast bread, bread rolls and buns. The portfolio also includes microencapsulated flavours, sugars and salts.
Michael Bosch, technical sales manager for the bakery division of Raps, commented: “We are delighted to be showcasing our portfolio at Iba. The functional ingredients refined with the Coatec process offer solutions to increase product quality and plant efficiency while reducing the reject rate.”
He added: “The baking industry is always looking for innovations that allow for the creation of appealing product ranges for all tastes, from light snacks to exciting new on-the-go lunch options”.
