A huge industry trend in recent years has been movement away from traditional chemical emulsifiers toward label-friendly solutions. This has been done so bakers can remove negative-sounding chemical ingredient names and reduce the amount of saturated fats in their baked products. The industry continues to adapt and embrace new ideas and technologies to improve fresh bakery products.
Bakery owners believe the collaborative process is as important as the bakery product itself, and industry leaders agree that safety concerns around the coronavirus pandemic continue to have a significant influence on bakery shoppers and their purchasing decisions. Due to economic challenges, many shoppers are looking for more value in the items and fresh baked goods they purchase.
