Ingredient BriefsStratum Nutrition 

Stratum Nutrition’s ApuraGreen kiwi fruit is a whole-fruit kiwi paste that can be used in baked goods such as bread, cookies, muffins and cakes as well as in nutrition bars and fruit fillings. The product’s natural composition provides a functional humectancy that allows for softer, fresher products (based on moisture) with an extended shelf life; fat and/or calorie reduction; and a clean label. ApuraGreen also contains no genetically modified organisms (GMOs), artificial preservatives or additives. It has high levels of vitamins C and K and dietary fiber, is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) and can be used to replace sugar, eggs, dairy products, butter, cooking oils and casein-derived products in baking.

Mühlenchemie GmbH & Co. KG

EMCEbest BugStop, a flour treatment from Mühlenchemie GmbH & Co., enables millers and bakers to restore the baking properties of flour made with bug-damaged wheat. Doughs made with bug-damaged wheat flour lose their elasticity, becoming soft and malleable. The damage also results in loss of volume. When EMCEbest BugStop or EMCEbest BugStop WT 1 are added to affected wheat, they lower the dough’s pH and deactivate bug enzymes, according to the company. Additional enzyme complexes improve the dough’s general baking properties and increase its fermentation stability.

Stratas Foods

Stratas Foods’ new Flex Palm shortenings perform like traditional soybean-based shortenings and have numerous attributes. In addition to being trans-fat-free, the shortenings have a smooth, creamy, more pliable consistency that rivals soybean-based products from the past. They are easier to work with when creating cakes and icings and have a whiter appearance due to smaller average crystal particle distribution. They also have a wider working functional range based on product temperature and a more consistent texture from cube-to-cube and lot-to-lot. Stratas Foods will offer nonemulsified and emulsified Flex Palm shortenings.
