Muscatine, Iowa-based Grain Processing Corp. will showcase its specialty food ingredients from booth 2841 at the Institute of Food Technologists annual meeting and food expo. Artisanal flatbreads with added fiber and whole grains will be served with a Cajun twist. A fiber claim was achieved using TruBran corn bran, a fiber made from U.S. yellow dent corn. The fibers are heat treated for added stability, have a typical dietary fiber content of 85% and are an easy addition to enhance the fiber content of baked goods.
The company will also highlight Inscosity instant modified starches in bakery cakes. An 18-month frozen bakery cake study was conducted to show Inscosity starch’s ability to retain moisture and reduce shrinking. The instant starch also helps improve cell structure and reduces tunneling.
