Freshness is one of the biggest challenges in baked goods. The trick is keeping products tasting good over a long shelf life, especially if you have a clean label. But why do baked goods go stale in the first place? And what role can enzymes play in this process to save the day? To answer these questions, Dr. Lin is joined by Tisa Drew, a staff scientist at Novozymes— a world leader in enzyme production.
Extending shelf life with enzymes
Tisa breaks down the science of how enzymes function in baked goods, and the role they play in protecting freshness and shelf life. She also tackles some of the misconceptions about enzymes, touching on subjects like GMOs and what to declare on labels. Plus, get some specific enzyme application suggestions. Other topics are:
