FORMULATION
Fruits & Nuts
Fruits and nuts can elevate baked goods, but they must be the right ingredients for the job.
by Donna Berry

Bakers recognize that real fruits and nuts are a clean
label approach to create premium treats from cookies
to muffins and birthday cakes. In some instances,
they contribute color, flavor and texture; in others, it's
all about functionality. Real fruits and nuts provide
a healthful halo by adding nutrients to baked goods,
sometimes by replacing less desirables, such as saturated
fat, and other times by boosting protein, fiber, vitamin
and mineral content. But formulating with them comes
with challenges.
" Working with true fruit and nut pieces in bakery applications
can be tricky regarding moisture migration
and textural issues, " said Paula Simons, manager, research
and development, Pecan Deluxe.
Fruit and nut inclusions can also impact dough and batter
machinability.
" Maintaining the inclusion's integrity and managing
interactions between the inclusion and its environment
are key to a successful formulation, " said Jonathan
Khouzam, senior research and development specialist,
Fruit d'Or. " It's critical to understand how these inclusions
will impact operational factors, such as dough or
batter machinability. "
Fruits and nuts pose different challenges. When they
are both part of a recipe - think raspberry almond
Danish - extra steps may assist with improving shelf life.
" Fruit can raise water activity and make an environment
where yeasts and molds can flourish, " said Thom
King, chief executive officer, Icon Foods. " While nuts

are stable, they are pricey. Fruit can be unstable in both
price and supply chain, as well as shelf stability. "
As an alternative to using the " real deal, " numerous
suppliers offer fabricated bits and pieces that may be
customized to flavor and composition specifications.
They can be used alone or in tandem with real fruits
and nuts.
" These bits help drive down water activity, thus extending
shelf life and reducing the cost of goods sold, "
Mr. King said. " Cinnamon dolce-type bits can
cut down on raisins used in raisin bread
while maintaining a textural sensation
and explosion of flavor. We are working
on more interesting fruit
bits like a chili mango, maple
nut nuggets,
allergen-free
peanut bits
and more. "
Fruit inclusions come
in whole pieces, slices,
dices and more.
