Cereclean, a 100% ’Clean Label’ preservative for bakery products

Catherine Ryall - 02-août-2018 15:54:01
Keenly aware of consumer expectations in terms of natural and ’Clean Label’ ingredients, Limagrain Céréales Ingrédients (LCI) is proud to present the newest addition to its range,  CERECLEAN . CERECLEAN  is a ’Clean Label’ preservative (fermented wheat flour) that provides the same results as a chemical preservative such as calcium propionate (additive E282), potassium sorbate (additive E202) or alcohol. Over time, breads, buns and pastries are susceptible to mould as well as to loss of flavour and texture. Bakery product preservatives slow this process down. In the past, for bread to keep, it was left to ferment for a long time ahead of baking. This process led to organic acids occurring naturally in the dough, which ensured a longer shelf life. Today, LCI revisits these old methods with CERECLEAN! CERECLEAN  is a fermented wheat flour with a controlled fermentation process, which provides a targeted production of naturally occurring organic acids to keep bakery products fresher for longer. Simple to use and with the reassurance that ’fermented wheat flour’ can be listed in the end-product ingredient list,  CERECLEAN  ensures the long shelf-life of breads, buns and pastries, without any loss of flavour or texture. Pauline Arramy, Bakery Market Manager at LCI, explains: " CERECLEAN   again demonstrates our expertise in functional flours and bread-making:   CERECLEAN   has the advantage of being more effective than the preservatives commonly used on the market today, for long shelf life, whilst being 100% ’Clean Label ’".
