As snacking emerges into a more mainstream trend, panaderías are responding with a greater selection of breads for snacking and small meal occasions.

From semita bread to the more traditional bolillo, panaderías in Houston, Texas, are driving higher demand for breads with many flavors and options.

“Have you tried our semita? Tell us what you think,” asks Tepatitlán Bakery in a recent Facebook post. “This super exquisite perfect to go with a delicious atole or champurado!”

The semita is a torta that originates back to Puebla, Mexico. The bread is perfect for sandwiches and other snacking occasions.

Adriana Chávez, who manages the retail location of Tepatitlán Bakery in Pasadena, Texas, a Houston suburb, points out that their customers are craving more sweet breads, quesadillas, and bolillos to enjoy the authentic flavors of Mexico.

“There is good diversity of people here, and many are from all over Mexico,” Chávez points out. “Our customers love to snack on many types of breads.”

The importance of flour

The demand for bread applications has not faded over the decades. Your customers want more bread varieties now than ever before. And, with BakeMark’s variety of Knoxbridge Mills flours, you can give them exactly what they want.

Flour is as traditional as it gets of an ingredient. The simple action of mixing water into flour, along with another ingredient or two, to create food is something that dates back to the oldest of times.

Flour is classic. It’s familiar. It speaks to the baker’s heart.

That’s why BakeMark offers an exclusive brand of flour: Knoxbridge Mills. Coming from the finest wheat fields in the country and into the hands of thousands of bakers across the nation, Knoxbridge Mills flour brings together the heritage and love of wheat farming and the passion for baking to deliver the industry’s finest wheat flour.

BakeMark understands that the key to consistently delicious baked goods is consistent ingredients. And we understand that flour is a traditional commodity that shouldn’t be loosely played around with. That’s why you can count on our Knoxbridge Mills flour line to deliver the highest quality flour with the most precise treatments in order to deliver the best results.

The nuances that come with the effects that gluten content has on the outcome of your finished products is something that BakeMark is all too familiar with. Gluten can be a finicky character sometimes, and every baker knows this.

From higher protein percentages in Artisan Premier Flour for whipping up hearty and crusty artisan breads, to delicate treatments for light pastries and cakes, to Classic Premier and All-Purpose that’s in between, Knoxbridge Mills flour has a wide range of treatments that will feed every need for every baker. Your bakery can have a wide array of offerings from crusty breads with a beautiful finish, to pizza doughs with the perfect amount of chewiness, to light and fluffy biscuits, scones, and muffins.

Use Heritage Premier Flour to make artisan bread slices for grilled cheese sandwiches. The wide selection of flour combined with a baker’s natural creativity means that the possibilities are endless.
