Gb Plange launched its Energie Solpan Bread Mix at Bakers’ Fair in Bolton last Sunday (2 October). The bread has a distinctive corn crust topping, and a natural golden yellow crumb, said the firm. The bread contains golden pieces of corn and is also enriched with vitamin D hence the name Solpan, which means sun bread.

"Bakers’ Fair was the perfect launch pad for Solpan," commented Marie Parnell, general manager, Gb Plange. "It’s really important that craft bakers can profit from the popularity of speciality breads and the fast-growing, functional foods market. Solpan ticks all the boxes when it comes to delivering distinctive taste, flavour and health benefits, which will add value to any bakery offering."
