Value-adding ingredients, recipes and processes for the bakery industry

Consumers are increasingly aware of E numbers and food additives. They demand naturally produced and nutritious bakery products that still taste delicious. At the same time, the health and wellness trend and sugar taxes challenge the food industry to reduce sugar, sodium and fat. Valio’s natural ingredients and patented technologies enable sugar reduction without artificial sweeteners and the production of lactose free or gluten-free, gut-friendly bakery products, all with high nutritional values.

Our experienced staff can help you with dosage, recipes and processes to improve the nautritional values as well as profitability of your pastry and bakery products.
