Without the blueberries, a blueberry muffin is just a muffin and without cinnamon, cinnamon raisin bread is just raisin bread. Whether you’re looking for chunks of chocolate or honey flavor, our inclusions add unique flavor profiles and complexity to your food products.
Inclusion technology can be applied to a wide variety of food products including pastries, breads, biscuits, muffins, and pancakes— just to name a few. We make sure to carefully match each product with its inclusion counterpart to guarantee a flavor-enriched result.
Key Advantages of Inclusions
To say that the process of manufacturing cheese is only slightly different than the process of manufacturing brownies, would be a gross understatement. Different types of foods vary drastically when it comes to production. This means that selecting the proper inclusion isn’t as simple as a “one and done”.
We’ve dedicated hours to thinking through as many food processing complications or hurdles as possible. We then put our heads together and found the best possible solutions to provide our partners.
A few of these solutions include:
- Flavor, aroma, and color are protected until released in the baking process
- Creates color bursts
- Color stability during the storage of a product
- No color bleeding
- Easy to use
- Flexible piece for less dough tearing
- Non-scorch for griddle applications
