When consumers look at the label of a food product, they need to see recognisable ingredients instead of E numbers. With real and authentic ingredients, you can manufacture baked goods that are deemed better quality, healthier, more trustworthy, and more sustainable by consumers.
The goodness of real, natural butter cannot be substituted in professional baking. Valio butter made from fresh Finnish cream maintains its high quality throughout the year, so that you can achieve the best possible taste, texture, and processability in industrial baked goods.
Consumer trends of health and wellbeing as well as snackification are major business opportunities for industrial bakeries. Avoidance diets like gluten-free and lactose free are gaining popularity. Also, bakery products need to meet the requirements of mainstream consumers who look for products with better nutrition, clean label, or characteristics supporting sustainability.
Valio butter performs optimally in bakery applications.
The health and wellness trend remains a major driver in the bakery business in 2020 and beyond. However, even consumers with health goals continue to seek out products that they associate with indulgence. To address these consumer needs, bakery professionals need ingredients that carry healthy connotations and contribute to great taste and texture.
The goodness of real, natural butter cannot be substituted in industrial baking. No plant-based oil or margarine gives pastries and other baked goods the taste and texture that butter does. Sweet or savoury. Leafy or crumbly. Rich or delicate. Whatever you are baking, Valio butter gives your products an inimitable fresh taste of butter, a fantastic structure and a delicious golden-brown appearance. Premium Valio butter does it naturally with no E numbers and additives.
In industrial baking, the product and process determine what is required of good butter. In puff pastry and other laminated doughs, butter needs to have plasticity for flaky and light texture. In shortbread, the taste of the butter and the crumbly texture play a significant role. At Valio, we have long experience in manufacturing butter that performs optimally in each bakery application.
Valio produces high-quality Finnish butter – including our lactose free variety – for bakery industry professionals who appreciate its plasticity, consistency, and superior taste. The key ingredient in Valio butter is fresh Finnish cream fully traceable to the farm of origin. Valio butter is lactic, which gives it a naturally long shelf life without the need for added preservatives or freezing.
Tap into the wellness trend with value-added products.
The health and wellness trend means that consumers are increasingly aware of what they are eating. They pay close attention to product formulation and ingredient labeling on bakery products. Still, they want their food to be delicious and a joy to eat.
Consumers look for products that they deem to be safe and high in nutritional value, avoiding E numbers and artificial additives. By producing clean label baked goods, you can reassure consumers that only real and authentic ingredients were used in the formulation.
