New to the UK market are Soja soya flours and ingredients from Austria. Soja produces gluten- and lactose-free whole soy products and is currently supplying into international bakery and pasta brands.

These range from enzyme-active soy flour, Soja Austria Pan, to soy flakes, Soja Austria Flakes. The finely ground soy flour is available in various toasting grades, according to customer requirements.

"Compared with the American bean, Soja Austria Pan has a higher enzymatic activity, which will allow British bakeries to produce fluffy toast bread and crispy white breads," claims the firm. "The warm, dry climate of summer in Austria is ideal for the delicate soy plant. Nutritious soil, clean water and well-chosen seeds allow superior quality soybeans to thrive."

In addition, the company supplies soy fibres and nuts, distributed in the UK through Thew Arnott & Co.

The products are guaranteed non-GMO.
