Vegan Bakery near me
The increasing demand for gluten-free Bakery products from consumers has triggered food technologists to investigate a wide range of gluten-free ingredients from different sources to reproduce the unique network structure developed by gluten in a wheat-dough system. In recent times, the attention has been focused on novel application of legume flour or ingredients.
The interest in this crop category is mainly attributed to their functional properties, such as solubility and water-binding capacity, which play an important role in gluten-free Bakery food formulation and processing.
Their nutritional profile may also counteract the lack of nutrients commonly highlighted in commercial gluten-free bakery and pasta products, providing valuable sources of protein, dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and complex carbohydrates, which in turn have a positive impact on human health.
The findings indicate that the demand for vegan products has increased. However, the availability still varies and thus the study has multiple suggestions for how to improve the availability. The study suggests that the cafés, pastry shops and bakeries should expand their selections to include vegan options. When serving vegan products, the products should be kept on display to increase the demand and to decrease the food waste. Furthermore, the study recommends collaboration between wholesalers and cafés especially in product development process. The cafés should also more often utilize the selections of wholesalers.
Luckily, the vegan business is booming and companies are now selling meat alternatives that look
and taste like real meat.
For instance, the largest bakery chain in the UK wants to introduce vegan versions of all their top-selling products, following the successful launch of their vegan sausage rolls which resulted in exceptional profit gains.
More and more people are also incorporating vegan substitutes in their traditional dishes. Therefore, providing vegan alternatives that cannot be distinguished from real meat is a game changer and might soften the pushback against veganism.
One thing we know for sure is that the exponential growth of the vegan economy will continue in 2020 and we anticipate a gradual shift towards a plant-based culture.
Dare we say that we can now start dreaming of a vegan Christmas?
