Döhler showcased an array of concepts for the bakery industry inspired by drinks at ProSweets.

The global ingredients provider sold the bakery side of its business almost 16 years ago to focus on the beverage sector, but is now reintroducing many of the ideas behind trend-setting beverages into food applications.

According to Kerstin Bergander, head of application food at Döhler, the beverage industry is highly innovative and has provided the German-based company with the basis to further develop its portfolio of natural flavours and colors.

Fruitful inspirations

At ProSweets held in Cologne at the end of January, the company showcased several concepts for multi-sensory experiences focussed on “healthy nutrition” for the bakery and snacks industries, including cola-flavored biscuits; and intense red colored biscuits that contain real pieces of raspberries.

Döhler also released several ideas for its savory portfolio, including savory clays or glazings for bagels, such as a mango curry preparation and a tomato basil topping; and new filling combinations, like a pineapple, lentil and red pepper application.

“The trend is definitely going toward the direction of naturalness,” Bergander told BakeryandSnacks.

“Fruit is our core business and from this, we can influence the trends, be it in bakery, confectionery or beverages, with the huge potential that these plants offer, especially when it comes to concepts like clean label, naturalness as well as sugar reduction.”
