Reformulation can lead to cost savings and increased sustainability
Innovative gluten-free solutions that satisfy customer need and exceed business requirements, without compromising product
Gluten-free diets have reached mainstream proliferation and carry a health halo that appeals to consumers across the
board. But while a host of gluten-free products are on the market, they have a very different nutritional make-up to conventional staples.
With consumers increasingly looking for healthier alternatives but the same great taste, the pressure was on for our
client, a well-known bread manufacturer. This client came to us to reduce the fat content in its gluten-free bread while maintaining the same
great sensory quality and cost.

We analysed the product and assembled a
product optimisation team to explore viable
solutions. We investigated new ingredients which could help reduce fat whilst maintaining the taste, mouthfeel and texture of the product and
reworked the original gluten-free formulation by:
- consolidating and reducing the number of ingredients used
- identifying lower cost materials that delivered similar performance
- reformulating the recipe to lower the usage of the most expensive ingredients
- reviewing and improving processing
Thanks to our combined experience, and extensive ingredients and process knowledge, the team was able to achieve a
fat reduction of over 30% while delivering the same sensory characteristics as the original gluten-free bread. The label change was appealing
from a consumer perspective because of the desire for alternative foods to be healthy.
20% reduction of production costs
Meanwhile, the new formulation not only reduced the fat content but also lowered production costs by 20%. By
minimising expenditure on raw materials and transportation, it brought down the carbon footprint of the product, improving its sustainability
and exceeding our client’s expectations.
