GoodMills Innovation presents GOOD Fibers 10+1, a high-fiber compound that enhances the nutritional and sensory profiles of baked goods. The fiber mix consists of 10 different sources, including cereals, vegetables and fruits. It provides valuable food for the body’s intestinal flora, which plays a key role in a healthy immune system. The compound also contains wheat germ, an original superfood that provides important nutrients such as spermidine, folic acid and vitamin E. The special composition of the product also allows for EU health claims in relation to the immune system and intestinal health, when used in sufficient doses.
The ingredients in GOOD Fibers 10+1 are combined to support the health of intestinal flora. Besides dietary fiber, some of the components contain other valuable nutrients. For example, tartary buckwheat is rich in zinc and the secondary phytochemical rutin, giving it antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, while wheat germ is an ideal source of spermidine. Spermidine is a substance produced naturally in the body and all other living organisms to stimulate autophagy, a type of ‘cell recycling’ that plays a role in immune defense.
“Until recently, a strong immune system was a topic mainly discussed during the winter cold and flu season, but this is changing,” says Jutta Schock, head of marketing at GoodMills Innovation. “The need for a powerful immune system is becoming a permanent topic – across seasons and generations. GOOD Fibers 10+1 makes it easy for the baking industry to respond to this current consumer demand with tasty, health-boosting products. Our new compound is suitable for an array of different products: from breads, rolls and sandwich buns to Danish pastries and croissants, and thus offers lucrative positioning possibilities across the entire baking segment.”
Technologically, GOOD Fibers 10+1 scores with a high dough yield, excellent dough and processing properties, as well as an outstanding baking volume. Thanks to the water-binding properties of its dietary fibers, prolonged freshness can be achieved. From a sensory viewpoint, the dietary fibers from ten sources plus the superfood concentrate from wheat germ ensure a perfectly balanced flavor profile.
