Exceptional

better yields
better profits

NEW PRODUCT HORIZON

Delivering uncompromised
taste in a better-for-you
product will not only
define 2019 but baked
goods for years to come.
The Black Label line from Alvarado Street Bakery includes six varieties: Sprouted Sonoma Sun, Sprouted Wheat
Hemp & Hops, Sprouted Flax & Chia, Sprouted Wheat &
Oats, Sprouted 100% Whole Wheat, and Sprouted White.
All are certified organic and feature sprouted whole wheat
berries. The Hemp & Hops flavor was a recent release targeting several current trends, including the popularity of craft
beers. "We looked at incorporating hemp into our sprouted
bread," he said. "It hits on a trend and provides some nutritional powerhouses like Omega 3 fatty acids without much
of a taste profile difference."
Baked products in other categories are taking notice. Trader Joe's sells a sprouted whole grain pizza crust.
Lancaster Food Co., Lancaster, PA, released Sprouted Choc
Chip Cookies. Angelic Bakehouse, Cudahy, WI, released
Sprouted 7 Whole Grains Wraps made with beet, kale,
spinach and sweet potato flavors. The wraps contain 21 g
or more whole grains per serving, and 100 Cal per wrap.
Offering a blend of seven whole grains in a wrap could
appeal to consumers who want to increase their intake of
whole grains.
"If you're not looking to innovate, you're not going to make
it," Mr. Canterbury said. "Bread is great fuel. It's good food, and
if you have a good bread, you're going to get customers. Things
come and go, but in the sprouted organic space, it is higher
than ever, and you will continue to see great innovations."

Mr. Vierhile said that on the better-for-you food front, protein as a macronutrient is not showing any signs of slowing down. "We expect to see companies find ways to tie into
consumer enthusiasm toward protein," he said.
The market is already bursting with protein-packed
baked snacks and foods not only for athletes but also for
everyday consumers and families. Parents may be more
inclined to purchase a protein bar as a meal replacement
for an on-the-go child. However, finding flavor profiles to
match each consumer group is critical.
New extrusion methods are bringing more puffed,
popped, dried and crisped textures to the salty snacks
segment and new ways to incorporate proteins into those
products. Examples include puffs made with chickpeas,
beets and even activated charcoal. Crunch-A-Mame from
