Valio Mineval™ is an all-new functional milk powder designed to help bakers naturally improve the stability, taste, texture, and nutritional value of their new enticing baked goods, bound to delight their customers.

Consumers look for products that offer them safety, tastiness and nutritional value while allowing them to avoid E numbers and artificial additives. Clean label baked goods bring reassurance that only real and authentic ingredients were used in formulation. Valio Mineval™ milk powder is a specialised functional powder that provides customers with a tool to create their own value-added clean label products. It is a natural way to improve the stability, texture, taste, and nutritional value of food products.

Valio Mineval™ milk powder enhances heat stability, extends product shelf life, prevents water separation, improves texture, replaces additives, and has a positive taste profile in different food applications.
