National Waffle Day falls on August 24th this year, which is a perfect time to make a thick, golden waffle! Did you know that the first waffles originated in Ancient Greece? They would cook flat cakes between two metal pans over a fire. Hundreds of years later in 1869, Cornelius Swartwout was granted the first U.S. patent for a waffle iron. Over the years, the waffle has evolved into a sweet or savory food you can enjoy for any meal, any time.
Balchem®’s encapsulated product BakeShure®, will provide quality and consistency to your waffle batter through pH optimization, flavor delivery, leavening control, moisture control, and antimicrobial preservation. Bakeries seeking to create perfectly crispy waffles with a soft center in their Freezer-to-Oven (FTO) applications. Toaster waffles can still deliver the waffle perfection consumers crave.
And, while we agree that plain waffles are delicious, how fun is it to bump up the sensory experience with Inclusions from Balchem? We can help you deliver amazing flavors and colors to all your bakery goods through flavor-rich and colorful Inclusions technology. Our recently launched Blueberry Maple Inclusion delivers the fresh fruit and sweet maple flavor that consumers expect in their baked breakfast goods. Take waffles to an entirely new level by adding in Balchem’s new GlimmerTM inclusions to create shiny, glittery waffles.
