SafeGuard™ Treatment & Delivery System

Flour is a raw ingredient, and its use in ready-to-eat applications needs to be a part of today’s discussions in bakery and food manufacturing. Just as there’s consideration given to the best sourcing practices, pricing and sustainability, make sure that food safety is part of your flour selection process.  

To help keep your customers safe from pathogen related food safety risks, Ardent Mills' SafeGuard™ Treatment has up to a five-log validated pathogen reduction process that creates a safe heat treated flour that can be used for ready-to- eat applications. Our advanced milling heat treatment technology has a decade-long legacy as a successful, commercially sold product line, available for both traditional wheat-based and alternative grains, flour, pulses, seeds and flakes.

Nearly 3 in 4 U.S. consumers reports a level of concern around the safety of the food they buy/eat. However, a survey shows that nearly half of consumers believe flour is safe to eat before cooking.

It’s time to talk about flour safety, and how to ensure your products deliver what consumers want.
