Bartek Upholds a Better Baking Experience in Inaugural Bakery Showcase Exhibition

Bartek’s innovative solutions increase shelf life and production ability, inhibit mold, and improve quality

VANCOUVER (May 1, 2023) – As growth within the clean label and artisan bakery industry continues to expand, Bartek Ingredients is highlighting its acidulant-based Uphold™ Bread Preservation Technology at the 2023 Bakery Showcase that can revolutionize the baker’s experience:

  • Uphold™ Clean Natural Mold Inhibitor (NMI) Booster keeps bread mold-free and fresh with extended shelf life. It also delivers on consumer expectations of freshness with softness, aroma, and taste profiles while complying with clean label requirements.
  • Uphold™ Classic Calcium Propionate Booster optimizes calcium propionate and acidulants to extend bread shelf life and improve overall quality.

“We’ve spoke with bakers around the world, from artisan shops to the largest suppliers,” said Alejandro J Perez-Gonzalez, Bartek’s Technical Business Development Manager. “The challenges we heard the most focused on the ability to achieve clean labels while making breads last longer and be more cost effective while ensuring exceptional eating experience. Our acidulant-based ingredient technologies are creating innovate ways for bakers of all types and sizes to reach their  goals. We encourage any baker looking to optimize their shelf life, consumer preference, productivity, and ingredient costs to stop by our booth.”

Uphold™ Clean and Classic are parts of Bartek’s portfolio of bakery ingredient technologies highlighted at the Bakery Showcase. The Bartek team will also be on hand to discuss their entire portfolio, including Upscale™ Artisan Bread Technology, to empower artisan bakers for industrial scale.

“Over the past three years, Bartek has invested in developing new ingredient solutions that draw on our deep expertise in the malic and fumaric acid and specialty salts category in a wide range of applications,” said Mohammad Emami, Bartek’s Director of Marketing and Business Development. “We are proud to now have a portfolio of completely unique, proprietary ingredient technologies that address bakers’ challenges and optimize their processes to produce the highest quality, clean label, and tasty products.”
