Bay State launches multi-grain blends Bay State Milling Co., Quincy, Mass., has introduced GrainEssentials multi-grain blends in the three brand names of Flavorful 5 Grain, Savory 7 Grain and Nourishing 9 Grain. Each contains a combination of assorted grains in the forms of flours, flakes, cuts and cracks for adding flavor, texture, visual appeal and nutrient density to a variety of grain-based foods. The blends were created and assessed at the Rothwell GrainEssentials Center in Quincy. Each blend was tested in a range of baked foods. They are available in pallets of 50-lb bags to food manufacturers, commercial bakers, and food service and bakery distributors. The introductions come after Bay State Milling in August acquired T.J. Harkins Basic Commodity Brokers, a supplier of sesame and edible seeds, sweet spices, ancient grains and specialty grain flours. “The recent acquisition of T.J. Harkins combined with the upgrade of our milling and blending technologies allows us to provide a comprehensive portfolio of cost-effective, ingredient solutions for grain-based food manufacturers,” said Colleen Zammer, director of product marketing for Bay State Milling.

The treatment was developed specifically for the company’s ChoiceGrad MP and SelectGrad MP flaxseed ingredients. “Safety is paramount in the food industry,” said Marilyn Stieve, business development manager-flax for Glanbia Nutritionals. “Our MicroSure Plus 5-log kill process provides customers with the combined benefits and assurance of outstanding microbial safety, optimal shelf life and rich nutritional and flavor qualities. “The effectiveness of a pathogen destruction method is typically expressed in terms of log kill. A 5-log kill typically equates to a 99.999% reduction.” For more information, visit Save time when adding ginger to cakes, cookies Van Drunen Farms, Momence, Ill., now offers individually quick frozen (IQF) ginger that may allow food service, restaurant and retail professionals to save time. “The distinct flavor of ginger can be easily added to foods with IQF ginger as it is available in convenient dices as well as frozen puree form,” the company said. Potential grain-based foods applications include spice cakes, savory-sweet bread and cookies.

It may emulate fried/toasted applications and also help mask flavors. “Flav-R-Grain can be used for breads, cookies, bars, cereals, baked goods, and more of it can be blended with peanut flour to extend usage and give a cost savings,” said Rudy Roesken, general manager of the food ingredients division for QualiTech. “In the nut industry, protein and fiber are key nutrients typically highlighted in marketing literature. By using our PBE product a food developer may decrease the total fat and increase dietary fiber in their formulations, making for a healthier product.” For more information, call (800) 328-5870 or visit Keep ‘gunk’ out of waffles A new toaster waffle machine reduces manufacturing costs and eliminates the need for nonstick coatings on the cooking griddle plates, according to TSA Griddle Systems, Carrollton, Texas.
