Potential and exploration of other crops

General objectives

In the future, in addition to wheat flour, the industrial bakery sector wants to use flour/meal/fractions from other crops in bread and other bakery concepts to make innovative end products with more flavour and/or enrich them with macro and micro nutrients.

In addition to wheat, other crops (e.g. tropical crops in Africa and Asia) can be a source of macro and micro nutrients or functionalities. But of course the various processing steps for making bread and other bakery products (grinding, fermentation and baking process) also play an important role in the final concentrations of the nutrients or the functionalities of the end product. Therefore, it is important to invest in knowledge about the processing of a wide range of other crops in a bread or other bakery concept.

Expected results

  • New bakery products based on alternative natural resources
