Gb Plange is helping craft bakers overcome the challenges of producing Tiger bread and rolls with an innovative new product.
Its Tiger Paste has been developed to give breads a crusty flavour, aroma and attractive shiny appearance. Users only need to add water to the mix.
General manager Marie Parnell said: "Tiger Bread has proved to be a bit of a headache for our industry; historically a fat-based liquid product or a powder-based concentrate was used to top the bread, but the fat-based products don’t give a good crust and can be expensive to use, while the powder-based products can be rather lacking in flavour. We hope this innovative new product will enable more bakers to produce this style of speciality bread, which presents a premium profit opportunity."
Tiger Paste is available in 12kg bags and has a shelf-life of eight months.
