Bakery products enables increasing daily intake of high biological value protein

Adding natural ingredients with high protein content to large scale consumption bakery products enables increasing daily intake of high biological value protein.

At AZTI-Tecnalia we have developed wheat flour replacement methodology to introduce other types of ingredients such as leguminous flours and other sources of protein (algae) in bread formulae while maintaining their sensory quality and improving nutritional properties.

Supplementary sensory characterisation research is carried out through tasting panels and texture analysis applying specific testing.

For several years AZTI-Tecnalia has worked with companies from different food sectors to develop healthy foods within R&D projects. Work is not only focused on product development but also in further dissemination and marketing steps providing an integral service – from new functional product concept to commercialisation, with the aim of guaranteeing launching success
