backaldrin brings natural colours to the range at Gulfood 2020
Colourful baked goods thanks to natural plant pigments are backaldrin’s highlight at the 25th anniversary of the Gulfood. The hues of the aronia berry and turmeric bring even greater variety to the product range. Classic Kornspitz®, traditional pretzels, sweet muffins, pancakes and waffles are also on offer at the exhibition stand.
The power berry, Aronia, is compelling in every way: it contains many phytochemicals, a high proportion of vitamins and minerals and has a low sugar content, while the red and blue plant pigments combine to lend a striking purple colour to bread and pastries. Clean label AroniaMix by backaldrin impresses with a variety of recipes for bread, rolls and fine bakery. The creations are characterised by a finely splintered crust, subtle notes of caramel and a fluffy purple crumb with an almost fruity taste. AroniaMix is also perfect for use in sweet yeast dough and cake batters. The possibilities are endless as AroniaMix can be added in different dosages to any recipe. The backaldrin master bakers recommend a dosage of between 10 and 25%. AroniaMix not only creates a feast for the eyes, it also enhances baked goods with the valuable ingredients of the power berry.
Let the sunshine in
Thanks to its colour and distinctive taste, turmeric is also on everyone’s lips. Particularly in the Arab world, the turmeric root is a well-loved and widely-used spice. Baked goods, however, are still a fairly new area for turmeric. The plant pigment curcumin adds a sunny yellow colour and unmistakeable taste to bakery products. With clean label KurkumaMix from backaldrin, bright yellow comes to the bakery counter, providing a real visual highlight. The products have a pleasantly mild-spicy taste, excellent fermentation stability and good volume. For best results, backaldrin’s master bakers recommend a dosage of 5% on flour.
Trends and Classics
A popular trend in the Middle East can also be found on backaldrin’s stand at Gulfood 2020: waffles and crêpes. “Freshly prepared waffles and crêpes are especially well liked in the Arab world. Our guests can enjoy a constant supply of fresh samples on site,” explains backaldrin master baker Günter Koxeder, who is responsible for the Middle Eastern region. Alongside the new products for the 25th anniversary of the Gulfood in Dubai, proven classics are a must. There are the backaldrin original Kornspitz® and pretzels, which backaldrin are outright famous for at the Gulfood. Muffins – among them the beloved Red Velvet Muffin – and classic sponge cakes in many variations are also available for tasting.
