Tenderbake extends product shelf life, improves product quality and saves money. It is a combination of technologies designed to control product moisture and maintain fresh flavors throughout the extended shelf life. Tenderbake is a dry, free flowing powder and can be added at various stages of production, and it will not change the product’s color, texture, or flavor unless designed to do so. Tenderbake improves product yields by increasing in process yields, reducing scrap and provides the ability to reduce product loss through shelf life extension. Tenderbake also improves product holding times while providing “oven-fresh” flavor attributes and “oven-fresh” texture attributes throughout the shelf life of the product, which is of key importance to the Food Service industry. Tenderbake is a process friendly product that requires no process modifications, takes baking quality far beyond typical dough conditioners, cleans up labels and saves money.
