In the times of Instagram and co., the appearance of our food is playing an increasingly important role. This applies to bread, rolls and other fine baked goods too. Natural plant pigments add colour and valuable ingredients to bakery products, thus ensuring a feast for the eyes and the palate. In June, backaldrin sets colourful accents with purple wheat and chokeberry.
Attention-grabbing power berry
Clean label AroniaMix by backaldrin impresses with the power berry, aronia. Originally from the north-eastern USA, it was valued by Native Americans. The super fruit contains many phytochemicals, a high concentration of vitamins and minerals and has a low sugar content. Red and blue plant pigments give the berry its deep dark red colour, which imparts an extraordinary purple colour to breads and pastries. Because of its great versatility, backaldrin offers a variety of recipe ideas with AroniaMix.
Options range from mixed wheat bread, baguettes and ciabatta to brioche, muffins and cakes. Baked goods are characterised by a finely splintered crust with subtle notes of caramel and a unique, fluffy, purple crumb with a subtly fruity taste. AroniaMix is also perfect on the sweet side in yeast dough and batters. The scope of application is unlimited; AroniaMix can be added to any type of dough. Recommended dosage lies between 10 and 25 percent, but can be adjusted as desired. AroniaMix not only provides an attractive look, but also enhances baked goods with the valuable ingredients of the power berry.
Purple wheat was almost forgotten for centuries, but has made quite a comeback over the last few years. The striking purple colour and valuable ingredients make purple wheat a remarkable crop. The husk of the purple wheat grain contains anthocyanins (phytochemicals), which give bread an unmistakeable colour. In baking, purple wheat develops a strong, spicy taste. Bread and rolls stay fresh and juicy for a long time. backaldrin offers a wide range of recipes, from PurPur® purple wholegrain bread to PurPur® ciabatta, also available in organic form. More information on purple wheat and natural plant pigments can be found under the nutrition tips at www.kornspitz.com in June.
