The Presentation: Mass customization in frozen bakery? Targeted modification of dough characteristics on industrial level.
From mass production to mass customization in frozen bakery? The presentation shows how new process technologies and the potential of digitalization enable the target-specific modification of dough characteristics – such hydration, fermentation, elasticity, plasticity and others. Industrial producers can not only adapt to ever-changing consumer trends – such as clean label – in a more agile way, they also may benefit from lower manufacturing costs. Mastering the new tools however is not always an easy task: the presentation concludes with key pre-requisites to be met in order to leverage the full potential.
