Limagrain cerealesLimagrain Céréales Ingrédients (LCI) have developed 2 new functional ingredients for professionals in the baking industry: BRICKS and NUTRICORN. Easy to incorporate into product formulations with the option of adapting them as per the needs of clients, LCI aim to help professionals innovate and make their ingredient lists even clearer and more transparent. Meet them at Food Matters Live on booth 267 from 21st - 23rd November 2017 to discover their solutions first-hand.

Build improvers BRICK by BRICK

Conceived in-house following a thorough analysis of client requirements and extensive testing by their R&D team, BRICKS is a new range of bread improvers. This new range is now available everywhere in Europe.

Suitable for baking businesses of all sizes and capacities, BRICKS has been developed especially for use in sliced bread and viennoiserie.

LCI provide the BRICKS, that is, the ‘base ingredients’ for bread improvers. BRICK by BRICK, benefitting from LCI’s advice and technical expertise, clients can build their own improver(s) fully adapted to their bread products.

Aimed to be as flexible as possible to meet the various needs within the bread-making industry, the range includes several options:

  • Ready-to use ‘bricks’ for specific requirements such as improved product softness
  • Companies can also mix and match with a selection of ‘bricks’ as required
  • Bespoke blend options whereby baking businesses can develop ‘bricks’ as desired. As an international agricultural cooperative group, LCI can develop formulations internally, meaning clients retain control of formulations and end-product recipes can remain confidential.

NUTRICORN: a combination of taste and health to bake better products

NUTRICORN, is toasted corn germ which can be used to enhance the taste and nutritional value of bakery products.

The germ is the most nutritional part of maize grain, naturally rich in fibre (20%), protein (20%) and minerals (including magnesium, potassium and phosphorus). Nutricorn can enhance the nutritional profile of the end product.

LCI toast NUTRICORN to improve product taste, which is similar to hazelnut. The toasting process is natural and ensures the nutritional value of the germ is preserved.

From fully traceable maize grains grown by Limagrain farmers, the ingredient brings a crunch, a lightly toasted taste and an appealing bright colour to bakery products.

Benefits of NUTRICORN:

  • Offers the natural benefits of corn germ (fibre, protein, magnesium) while improving the taste and/or texture of bakery products
  • Multipurpose: can be used in different bakery products, such as bread, pastries, cakes cereal bars, tortilla chips, biscuits and more
  • Versatile: NUTRICORN can be used as a topping or baked in the product
  • Allergen-free: does not contain any of the 14 main allergens (including gluten or nuts)
  • NUTRICORN is rich in magnesium: only 7g of Nutricorn is all that’s needed in a final product for it to qualify as a ‘source of magnesium’, that is 57mg of magnesium per 100g!
  • Lower costs: Nuts, and particularly hazelnuts and almonds, are expensive products and prices can fluctuate significantly. NUTRICORN is an ideal replacement for nuts in numerous products. The ingredient can lower recipe costs used as both a total and/or partial substitution.

LCI will be exhibiting at Food Matters Live booth 267 at ExCel London from 21st - 23rd November 2017, don’t miss this opportunity to find out more about their new ingredients.
