Clean Label Baking: An Overview

Innophos to Showcase LEVAIR® Select at BakingTECH Event and Expo

Innophos is set to return as a presenter at the American Society of Baking’s (ASB) Annual BakingTECH Event and Expo, taking place from February 27 – 29, 2024, at the Hilton Chicago. BakingTECH is a premier event that brings together a diverse range of attendees, including scientists, food professionals, and exhibitors from around the world.

The highlight of Innophos’ presentation will be LEVAIR® Select, a non-aluminum leavening solution designed to address consumer concerns about aluminum in baked goods. This innovative solution offers bakers a functional alternative to SALP (Sodium Aluminum Phosphate), providing a resilient crumb structure and supporting bench, line, and floor tolerance. Additionally, LEVAIR® Select contains added calcium and reduced sodium, making it a standout choice for bakers looking to meet regulatory standards.

Paige Nehar, a representative from Innophos, will delve into various topics during the presentation, including the impact of consumer trends and U.S. retailers on the removal of aluminum from baked goods and case studies highlighting the benefits of using LEVAIR® Select as a replacement for traditional SALP. Moreover, David Okapal, R&D Manager at Crown Bakeries, will share his firsthand experience with LEVAIR® Select in specific baking products.

Karen Winkowski, Vice President of Technology at Innophos, expressed excitement about showcasing LEVAIR® Select at BakingTECH, emphasizing how this innovative solution helps partners and customers meet regulatory standards while maintaining quality and texture in their products. Winkowski also highlighted the growing pressure from retailers for bakers to find alternatives to SALP in their formulations.

During the expo, Paige will be available for press opportunities. Media outlets interested in scheduling an interview can reach out to the designated contact.
