Bakery: muffins and more
Applications include breakfast baked goods: scones, muffins, toaster
pastries and pancakes.
" Wild blueberries grow on bushes that are quite low to the ground
and are not typically machine harvested, " Whitman said. " Special hand
harvesters have been developed to help pickers scoop the berries
from the bushes without damaging the plants or bruising the berries.
Because these blueberries will be processed immediately into purée
(not shipped as whole fruit) they are picked at peak ripeness. "
Wild Blueberry season is typically July through early September.
Global Organics sells organic wild blueberries that have been gently
picked, sorted, washed, and thoroughly inspected. The berries are
then milled, puréed, and screened to remove seeds. The purée is
pasteurized and aseptically packaged - preserving the natural
flavors, colors, and nutritional value without the need for any added
preservatives. Puréed wild blueberries have a 36-month shelf life frozen;
12 months at ambient temperature.
The sustainability factor
Michael Itskovich, founder and director of Innovation and R&D of
Nikola's Bakery, which develops, formulates, and produces for celebrity
restaurants, retail bakery, and foodservice, points out the importance
of " improving how we think about food and ingredients. " After an eyeopening
experience, Itskovich is convinced that Malaysia's certified
sustainable palm shortening is a sleeper ingredient that is about to
become a major player.
Itskovich now uses palm shortening in brownie batter bites and most
muffins, as well as all of the bakery's fruit breads (banana, zucchini,
pumpkin, etc.).
He points out Malaysia's palm shortening does more than perform
well. " It is also cost effective, sustainable, naturally non-GMO and transfat
free, which are all great talking points for the finished products. "
A family business, Nikola Bakery is proud to create real food for real
people. The company's successes include projects for Kroger, Caribou
Coffee, Nutrisystem and others, according to the company.
It was while using Malaysian certified sustainable palm oil shortening
for a premium product development project that Itskovich was
pleasantly surprised by how well it worked.
" The quality of Malaysian palm oil shortening opened my eyes
to the possibilities. It's not just a minor difference. This is a world
apart. It far exceeded my expectations with respect to performance
and functionality. Going forward, we will only use Malaysian palm
shortening for anything plant-based or requiring a higher fat content, "
he said.
A major portion of the company's new product development is in the
better-for-you and plant-based worlds, he explained. Malaysian palm oil
is a vegan, plant-based alternative to butter. It functions closer to butter
than margarine. It creams better and holds volume better. It even has a
pleasant mouthfeel and blends well with other oils, he said.
" Nikola Bakery is currently working on three projects with which
we're using palm shortening, " Itskovich said. " Now that I understand
there are many varieties of palm shortenings, produced in a wide
range of specifications, I will continue to specify only those made with
Malaysian certified sustainable palm oil. "

Dairy protein ingredients
High protein bakery product launches that include dairy protein
ingredients are on the rise as consumers show increased interest, and
Glanbia Nutritionals' new OvenPro Series aligns with their demands.
OvenPro provides a range of functionally beneficial ingredients that
allow a wide range of baked goods to contain higher levels of protein
and fiber with low levels of sugar and net carbs.
Products making high protein claims that include dairy-based
proteins constituted 10.7% of launches during the September
2020-August 2021 period. In 2020, about 40% of consumers surveyed
said they are somewhat or very interested in consuming high protein
muffins and other bakery items.
The OvenPro Series includes OvenPro Bread & Bread Zero Net Carb,
OvenPro Cake, and OvenPro QuickBread. The benefits of OvenPro are:
* Similar functionality of wheat flour
* Addresses high protein formulation challenges
* Usage levels can be adjusted to achieve a variety of nutritional goals
* Simple and clean labeling
* Optimized specifically for the bakery industry
" With commonly used wheat protein lacking as a complete
nutritional protein source, and the well-known challenges associated
with adding protein to baked goods at higher levels, we are excited to
provide our customers a superior ingredient solution that solves these
issues, " said Steve Ham, senior director commercial bakery, Glanbia
Nutritionals.
