Soy Flour Replacer

Innovation in the Baking Industry – keeping your finger on the pulse



Goldiluxe is Yellow Pea flour that can be utilized to replace full fat soy flour in bread and bread improvers. Addressing soy allergens is becoming a big issue in the food industry. Replacing full fat soy flour in bread improvers will address the soy allergen issue and in doing so will reduce the number of allergens within a simple white bread product to one. In Canada and France, Yellow Pea flour is used extensively to replace full fat soy flour on a one for one to 1.5 basis in bread and bread improvers. In addition the lipoxygenase within the enzyme active yellow pea flour aides the bleaching and crumb whitening of bread as well as providing nutrition.

It has been found that inclusion of pea flour at percentages of between five and ten percent in bread and cakes improved the nutritional composition of the bread; increased water absorption and decreased stickiness of the dough; and had no adverse affect on sensory evaluation.
