Corbion announces organic dough improver

Corbion has announced Pristine Organic 522, which it says is its most advanced organic dough improver to date. The latest addition to the Pristine range of clean-label dough conditioners can be used in both organic and non-GMO formulations, and is claimed to consistently outperform competing products, delivering better machinability and oven spring, increased volume and, in some cases, reduced mix time.

"We believe Pristine Organic 522 will begin to change what consumers can expect from organic baked goods in terms of a quality eating experience," said Ashley Robertson, Market Manager - Bakery at Corbion. "This category has been considered a healthy option by many consumers for some time, but now organic bakers can deliver more of the appealing sensory attributes associated with the best in baking."

Bread with Pristine Organic 522 is said to have consistently tested better at six days and 14 days compared to the control (bread made with competing products) in terms of the three key attributes of crumb texture: firmness, resilience and adhesiveness. Corbion says it also scored higher than the control in all categories of sensory testing, including freshness, taste, softness, texture and moistness, and was preferred 3-to-1 over the control. The new dough improver was used in conjunction with Corbion's Ultra Fresh Classic 110 blend of freshness enzymes to extend shelf life.

"Enhancing the sensory aspects of organic baked goods will broaden the audience for this premium category," Robertson said. "It's another example of how advancements in our baking technology create more opportunity for the industry."

In a proprietary study conducted by Corbion in 2014, 67% of consumers surveyed indicated that the types of ingredients used in food products influenced their purchasing decisions. That is why Corbion says it created the Pristine line of dough conditioners, helping bakers enhance the quality and consistency of their products, optimise manufacturing performance, and appeal to a broader segment of consumers, including those looking for foods with "cleaner, simpler" ingredient declarations.
