What types of fortifications can snack and bakery companies use? And why should they use it?

Fortifying baked goods with superstar ingredients can help producers support consumer health, while differentiating their products. Our wide range of functional ingredients and solutions in baking has expanded to include MEG-3® and life's™ OMEGA, a portfolio of clinically proven marine-based natural Omega-3 products for use in foods such as bagels, bread and tortillas. It includes both EPA and DHA to deliver the brain, eye and heart health benefits that are important to consumers, and it is rigorously tested to conform to global quality and purity standards.

Right now you can find products with MEG-3® in over 40 countries, and counting. The ideal applications for MEG-3® in bread and bakery products include fresh white and whole wheat breads and rolls (plus parbaked and frozen varieties as well), bagels and tortillas – mainly products with a short shelf life to ensure freshness. Here, DSM’s technical application experts are well-equipped to advise on how to incorporate MEG-3® effectively to ensure the best possible application result.
