Salt Reduction in Bread

The constant battle to reduce salt and sugar in baked goods has created a technical hurdle that bakers and food technologists are trying to overcome in order to maintain the flavours that the public want and expect. In response to this, ITS has developed a number of bread flavours and enhancer systems that redress the flavour balance. These products have proved to be successful in a range of bread products, where the salt content has been reduced to 0.9% (below the FSA 2017 Target guideline of 0.96% for bread) not only without flavour compromise, but with actual flavour enhancement.

Additionally, ITS is currently working on new "Sour" type flavours which will be directed more towards the Artisan and Craft Sectors". These flavours recreate the sour notes characteristic of long fermentations but in “No-time” doughs. Such flavours could potentially be combined with a well-designed improver system to also re-create the crumb structure that is characteristic of long-fermented sour breads.
Sometimes a texture and flavour solution is needed as the change in salt level can influence the crumb structure and baking parameters such as mixing, proving and baking times.
Each application and recipe will be different and consequently ITS is developing a portfolio of systems tailored to suit a wide range of bread products.
 
Besides high intensity natural flavourings, we also offer solutions for creating the right texture and mouthfeel such as ‘Bridging technology’, ‘Masking technology’ and ‘Softness in cakes and breads’.
