Fayrefield FoodTec (Crewe, Cheshire) will be exhibiting its new range of healthier ingredients and mixes for cakes, breads and morning goods at Food & Bake at the NEC in March.

These include Geltec clean-label egg replacer, which increases shelf-life and lowers cholesterol content.

Mixes containing no hydrogenated fats will also be on display to meet consumer expectations for products with possible heart health benefits, says the company.

The company can also help bakers include omega 3 fatty acids for improved heart and brain health through odourless fish oils and flaxseed. Ways to include prebiotics for improved gut health and a sucrose-free Madeira cake mix will also be on show.

Fayrefield will be launching new products containing natural bread improvers and also sourdough bread and pizza mixes at the show.

All mixes will be available in traditional 3.5kg and 12.5kg bags, but can be made available in any size the customer requires. Fayrefield FoodTec has supplied mixes to a number of cake bakeries for many years.

Products are sold under the Baketec and Geltec brands. The company says it is not well known in the industry because it has grown through close confidential partnerships with retail product manufacturers.

It has supplied bespoke mixes and brought new product ideas to market, while cutting processing and ingredients costs, it claims.
