Bread is Back

And we are excited!

Oprah gave us permission to love bread a couple of years ago when she declared she loved bread, and we ran with it! Bread 2.0 is now listed as one of three top trends in the Food & Drink section of The 2019 Topics and Trends report from Facebook IQ.

Though we have seen a shift in preference here, a change in opinion there, bread has remained a great wholesome, healthful food. One reason is that bread, and other wheat-based foods, cover the gamut from daily food staples to a celebratory indulgence. (And how cool is the hype around the BreadBot recently debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show?)

As we dig in to the expected trends of 2019, we see that consumers are interested in artisan-style, more transparency and clean label, and plant-based proteins.

Wheat proteins are a great option to start with as you begin to check the boxes of what modern consumers are looking for in baked goods.

Bread is so much more than sliced bread – though we do love sliced bread! As consumers embrace artisan-style breads bakers have accepted the challenge – creating variety in taste, nutrition, and appearance. Wheat proteins allow you to dial in on that unique rheology and texture to create your one of kind artisan loaf or roll.  

The industry thinks “clean label,” the consumer thinks “transparency.” Same concept, different lingo.  From dough conditioner to egg replacement, GemPro wheat proteins allows you to meet these formulations with a clean and clear label – wheat protein. Proving either strength or relaxation, wheat proteins can be used to replace “less label friendly” ingredients. All GemPro wheat proteins are non-GMO and most are available as organic.

Protein. Protein. Protein. The desire for high protein does not seem to be waning. With 90% protein GemPro protein are suitable to meet your protein needs. If you prefer to use a blend of proteins, wheat proteins function as an excellent texturizer. They work well in conjunction with other proteins to optimize texture, and maintain that texture throughout shelf life. Try thishigh protein bread to kick off your bake tests in 2019!

The opportunities are endless and the team at Manildra is excited to help you meet your goals for 2019. Get creative with bakery, and let wheat proteins help!


Manildra Group USA Launches GemPro Ultra

Manildra Group USA Launches Newly Reformulated Wheat Protein

Opportunities with GemPro Ultra range from Organic Dough Conditioner to High Protein Beverages

Leawood, Kansas:Manildra Group USA has launched a newly reformulated GemPro®Ultra to answer the call of today’s trend toward cleaner, simpler ingredients in­­­­ food manufacturing. While GemPro Ultra was originally developed a few years ago, the Manildra team has recently made advancements in process to improve flavor and solubility. In addition, the applications team has identified key functional benefits for both the high protein and organic markets. GemPro Ultra and Organic GemPro Ultra are identical in functionality, allowing you to choose which option best fits your market needs.

The unique characteristics of GemPro Ultra give it the ability to act as a reducing agent in dough products: shortening mix times, increasing extensibility, and assisting with pan flow. “This clean label and organic option for a reducing dough conditioner is a huge advantage for this market,” said Brook Carson, vice president of product development and marketing. “Improvements in process, dough rheology, and texture are observed in applications from bread to snacks.”

With 90% protein, GemPro Ultra helps boosts protein levels, either when used as the sole protein source or in conjunction with others. Wheat proteins, such as GemPro Ultra, are excellent protein options to manage texture as the protein content increases. As consumers continue to seek high protein food sources, formulators must strive to meet that demand with protein sources that provide appealing taste, texture, and nutrition.  The expertise of the Manildra team has fine-tuned the process and enhanced GemPro Ultra making it perfect for use in a multitude of high protein applications.

While many people think of wheat protein for bakery and snack, GemPro Ultra capabilities go beyond the traditional applications and offer alternatives for beverages and nutrition bars. High in glutamine peptides, GemPro Ultra is an optimal choice for nutritional beverages to aid in quicker muscle recovery following intense exercise.
