Puratos is hoping to encourage more bakers to develop savoury patisserie with the launch of a Satin Savoury Mix.

The ingredients supplier said the mix was suitable for creating a range of savoury patisserie, including cakes, pastries and muffins.

It added that the mix provided bakers with the opportunity to extend their offering alongside the current trends for healthier snacking and lower-sugar options, by creating “a range of savoury patisserie options that are suitable for snacks and meal solutions throughout the day”.

The Satin Savoury Mix requires the addition of water, egg and oil, and can be combined with inclusions such as cheese or vegetables. It also contains no salt and no added sugar.

“The recent government, industry and media focus on reducing sugar has led to a rise in consumer demand for savoury options,” said Lydia Baines, digital and communications manager at Puratos UK.

“Our new Satin Savoury Mix provides consumers with a range of unique and delicious options – from savoury loaf cakes suitable for breakfast to savoury patisserie perfect for a light lunch served with salad.”

Earlier this year, Puratos launched its first range of vegan mixes in plain and chocolate variant
