Kerry Launches Innovative Biobake Fresh Rich Enzyme

Melrose Park, Illinois - Kerry, a leader in the food industry, has made a groundbreaking advancement with the introduction of Biobake Fresh Rich.

This innovative enzyme system is specifically designed to revolutionize the world of sweet baked goods such as muffins, pancakes, and pound cakes.

What makes Biobake Fresh Rich stand out is its unique ability to extend the freshness and maintain the softness and moistness of baked goods that contain over 20% sugar.

This is a significant leap forward in the bakery sector, addressing one of the key challenges - extending the shelf life of sweet bakery products without compromising on quality.

The secret behind this technology lies in its starch-acting enzymes. These enzymes work to maintain the crumb structure, ensuring that it remains consistent and flexible throughout the product's shelf life.

Biobake Fresh Rich comes in a dispersible dry format and is neutral in taste, making it an ideal additive for various recipes.

Deborah Waters, the Product Director for enzymes at Kerry, highlights the numerous benefits of Biobake Fresh Rich.

Not only does it enhance the sensory attributes of baked goods, but it also plays a crucial role in reducing food waste. This is particularly significant in today's world, where sustainability and waste reduction are of utmost importance.

Recent global consumer research by Kerry, involving over 5,000 consumers across 10 countries, revealed a strong consumer inclination towards reducing food waste through extended shelf life products.

An overwhelming 98% of consumers are actively trying to reduce food waste, with 72% believing that improving shelf life is a key factor.

A third of consumers are even willing to switch brands for products with a longer shelf life.

Biobake Fresh Rich is not just a technological innovation; it's a response to consumer needs and a step towards a more sustainable baking industry.

By ensuring the longevity of sweet baked goods, Kerry is not only catering to consumer preferences but is also contributing to a more robust supply chain and a more sustainable environment.

This development is a clear example of how technological advances can align with consumer demands and environmental sustainability, marking a significant milestone in the bakery industry.
