Also known as dough conditioners, bread improvers are food additives comprising oxidizing and reducing agents, enzymes, emulsifiers, and soya flour. They activate the gluten, alleviate the baking process and enhance functionality properties. They assist in improving the texture, color, taste, composition and tenderness of the bread. They also help reduce wastage, improve workability, maintain a strong structure and provide better volume. As they ensure faster leaving and have a longer shelf life, the demand for bread improvers is escalating around the world.

Bread Improver Market Trends:
Bread improvers play a pivotal role in keeping bread fresh and soft. As a result, there is a considerable rise in the utilization of bread improvers in the baking industry across the globe. This can be accredited to their benefits like easing the complex process of baking and reducing the use of other ingredients like salt and cysteine. Apart from this, increasing consumption of bread and bread products is also positively influencing the overall sales. Moreover, rising awareness about health among individuals is catalyzing the demand for baked food products, such as whole wheat and multigrain bread, which are healthier and provide more value and variety. These product variants are also gaining traction in quick-service restaurants (QSRs) worldwide. This, in confluence with a significant increase in the consumption of ready-to-eat (RTE) food products, is strengthening the market growth. Furthermore, bread manufacturers are focusing on investing in research and development (R&D) activities to introduce innovative product variants, which is creating a favorable market outlook. Other major factors, including sedentary lifestyles, inflating income levels and the introduction of organic bread improvers, are anticipated to drive the market.
