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, 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.
When asked if consumers would no longer buy a product again if it had been related to a food poisoning event, 37% stated they would not buy from the brand again*. However, a survey shows that half of consumers believe flour is safe to eat before cooking or baking**. It’s essential to make sure the flour in your products delivers on these expectations.
It’s time to talk about flour safety, and how to ensure your products deliver what consumers want.
