Arla Foods Ingredients has launched a new range of “multifunctional” improvers for breads, cakes, biscuits and cookies.

The Nutrilac Natural Improvers range is made from natural and functional proteins derived exclusively from milk and can be listed on-pack simply as “milk protein”.

The new NutrilacNatural Improvers are being launched now in Europe and China, with a global roll-out set for later this year.

Søren Nørgaard, senior manager at Arla Foods Ingredients, said: “We have long known that our existing protein-based egg replacement solutions provide a series of supplementary quality benefits. Our technologists have now taken those benefits and evolved them into a targeted toolbox which makes it easier for bakers to achieve great results every time, whatever their goal and whatever the product.

 “Our new NutrilacNatural Improvers offer bakers a huge variety of benefits that meet a comprehensive range of production needs, including optimised processes, better product quality and reduced wastage. They will appeal to consumers, too, because they will result in a healthier product with a cleaner label, free of the e-numbers and chemical names used for other improvement additives.”

There are four launch products in Arla Foods Ingredients’ new NutrilacNatural Improvers range, which have a variety of applications.
