Encore: Extending Freshness in Baked Goods

Drawing on our team’s extensive bakery expertise and limitless capabilities, Delavau Bakery Partners by SafPro® delivers Encore shelf life extension solutions that keep baked goods fresher longer.

Encore Fresh™

With Encore Fresh, Delavau Bakery Partners by SafPro delivers antimicrobial functionality that extends the shelf life of breads, sweet goods, and snacks. Encore Fresh has successfully extended the shelf life of a range of baked goods—including extending the shelf life of pita from 10 to 21 days—delivering mold inhibition while maintaining a desirable eating experience.

Encore Soft™ 

We developed Encore Soft anti-staling solutions to deliver a freshly baked sensory experience well beyond the oven. With Encore Soft anti-staling ingredients, we offer turnkey and tailored ESL solutions that benefit both the quality and longevity of the eating experience.

Noteworthy successes include extending the freshness of a shelf-stable snack cake from 30 to 45 days and doubling the lifespan of a yeast-raised doughnut from 18 to 36 hours.

In one recent case study, we found that preparing a standard yeasted donut with our Encore Soft product resulted in a donut with significantly better surface texture. Over 24- and 30-hour periods, the surface of the donut with Encore Soft was approximately 21 percent softer than that of a donut without it. By improving the quality of applications over their shelf life, our ESL and DC solutions promote a better eating experience for your customers.

Encore Plus™

Recognizing that a fresher eating experience is often accompanied by the need for an extended shelf life, Encore Plus™ includes combined anti-staling and antimicrobial solutions for extended freshness and shelf life for tortillas, breads, cookies, cakes, and more.

Combining the capabilities of Encore Fresh and Encore Soft, our Encore Plus™ solutions achieve the ideal balance between good-tasting and long-lasting, with both anti-staling and antimicrobial functionality.

Use Encore ingredients to extend shelf life and improve the eating experience of a variety of bakery applications, including:

  • flatbreads
  • doughnuts
  • cakes
  • rolls
  • pizza dough
  • bread
  • and more
