Kröner-Stärke has inaugurated it brand-new development kitchen and meeting space at its headquarters in Ibbenbüren, Germany, designed to not only advance its own R&D, but also to work hand-in-hand with customers onsite.
Ingredients specialist Kröner-Stärke has created a cream-like filling for bakery and confectionery products that boasts a shelf life of at least 24 months, but is still free of artificial ingredients, additives and preservatives.
According to the clean label ingredients specialist, its portfolio of agglomeration ingredients answers a raft of technical challenges, but also present a huge opportunity for producers wanting to produce clean label products.
Kröner-Stärke has launched a range of spelt gluten, starches, flours and pregelatinized starches to allow producers to capitalise on the growing popularity of ancient grains as consumers embrace clean label.
Henrik de Vries, commercial manager at KRÖNER-STÄRKE, explores ways in which bakeries can optimize their use of flours and starches to keep up with changing consumer demands – without the use of chemicals, modified starches or E-numbers.
