Europain 2016 Innovation Awards
THE GLUTEN FREE RANGE
BRIDOR / (Stand 5R32)
Drawing on its expertise in bakery products, a know-how it has been cultivating since 1988, Bridor chose to take up the challenge of making high-quality gluten-free products with the launch of its new gluten-free range. The range consists of an individual plain roll 45 g, an individual seed roll 45 g, a pure butter sweet small brioche 50 g and a pure butter madeleine 30 g. These products are just as delicious as conventional recipes thanks to the combination of good ingredients: flours compatible with gluten intolerance, butter, eggs and poppy seeds, which are traditionally used in bakery products and Viennese pastries. These components make it possible to combine both taste and practicality by making products more enjoyable to eat. Because they
are individual packaged, the products within Bridor’s gluten-free range are protected from cross contamination and it’s possible to bake products at the same time as conventional products. They can be defrosted in a conventional oven or microwave without being removed from their packaging.
CHOCOLAT WEISS / (Stand 5C114)
