Growing consumer demand for healthier bakery products is being met with the launch of a new multiseed concentrate containing ancient grains.

Described by ADM Milling as a “premium quality”​ bread mix blended from wheat flour and a variety of seeds and ancient grains, the concentrate can be combined with wholemeal, white or malted flours.

It contains five different seeds – brown and golden linseeds, sunflower, pumpkin and poppy seeds – and four ancient grains – millet, chia seed, amaranth and quinoa.

High in protein and fibre

Typically perceived by consumers as being high in protein and fibre, the addition of these ingredients helps bakers create products that satisfy the demands of health-minded shoppers, said ADM.

The mix can be combined with different flour varieties to create a range of seeded breads, including loaves and rolls.

The blend of seeds and grains also added texture to baked goods, giving them an authentic mouthfeel and taste, ADM added.

Harvest Sun malted wheat flour

For example, they can be combined with ADM’s Harvest Sun malted wheat flour for bread products with an additional source of fibre and malty taste and aroma, the company suggested.

“The trend towards more natural and wholesome products has resulted in an increase in global product launches of baking ingredients and mixes containing ancient grains,”​ said Peter Hayes, national sales manager for bakery at ADM.
