DuPont Nutrition & Health offers bakers customized ‘cleaner label’ solutions

Consultative approach gives manufacturers choices in responding to consumer demand.

Pressure within the baking industry for ‘clean labeled’ products has never been greater, yet what constitutes ‘clean labeling’ is not clear cut. To some manufacturers, a ‘clean label’ means using simple, easily recognizable ingredients. To others, it means a short ingredient deck, and still to others, it means stating ‘all natural’ on the label. This is why DuPont offers bakers customized solutions for ‘cleaner labels.’

“We believe that a one-size-fits-all solution for cleaner labeling in bakery products simply doesn’t work,” explained Troy Boutte, Ph.D., group manager, bakery, oils and fats, DuPont Nutrition & Health. “Each of our customers has their own brand-specific labeling goals, which differ because of their unique formulations and marketing strategies. The strength of DuPont is in being able to tailor ingredient solutions to help each manufacturer create the cleaner label they want.”

The extensive portfolio of DuPont Danisco® baking ingredients is unique in the industry, offering:

Antimicrobials                                     Hydrocolloids

Enzymes                                              Blends

Emulsifiers                                          Sweeteners

Functional fibers


The breadth of applications expertise and scientific understanding of all these ingredients within a single organization is what gives DuPont the unmatched ability to help give bakers flexibility in creating the cleaner label they envision. “New ideas grow out of collaborations with customers and our dedicated baking ingredient experts,” said Boutte. “There is often a large gap between what off-the-shelf ingredients provide and what bakery manufacturers need to achieve the cleaner label they’ve defined for themselves. Customized solutions from DuPont fill that gap.”
