Anti-aging Techniques Updated for Bread

The aging of bread is similar to that of human beings, which can only be delayed by different technologies, but cannot be prevented. The aging bread gives us the intuitive feeling that it is hard, easy to fall crumbs when slicing, and tastes rough.

There are many factors affecting aging. The main reason is the recrystallization of swelling starch molecules. For bakery food processing shops or enterprises, the raw ingredients are the most easily controlled, with the combination of better compatible improvers can retard the bread aging from the roots. As a raw material for roasting fermented foods, the modifier not only increases the volume and improves the function of tissues, but also has some anti-aging agents. After more than 20 years' development and accumulation of bread improver, Angel Yeast has developed several kinds of bread improver with different functions: increasing volume, frozen dough, hamburger, French stick (Crisp effect), anti-aging (powder and paste), etc.

After technical researches, the recommended product portfolio for baked products are:
