Good for You Crackers

14 Mar 2005 --- Rebalance System 50 Cracker Ingredients provide appropriate dough machining properties and contribute a light and crispy texture along with the presence of dietary fiber.

Tate & Lyle’s new “Rebalance System 50 Cracker Ingredients is claimed to offer manufacturers the solution for a new and unique, “Good For You” snack cracker”. “Consumers want a cracker that can satisfy hunger at any time of the day, as well as offer convenience, go-anywhere portability, and a diverse range of textures and flavors”, stated Lori Napier, Tate & Lyle R&D Specialist.

Tate & Lyle R&D has successfully developed a prototype of whole grain crackers with Rebalance System 50 Cracker Ingredients using traditional sheeted cracker technology.  Rebalance System 50 Cracker Ingredients provide appropriate dough machining properties and contribute a light and crispy texture along with the presence of dietary fiber. Additionally, Rebalance System 50 Cracker Ingredients enhance flavor in whole grain cracker formulas providing mild sweetness in the absence of nutritive sweeteners.

Rebalance System 50 Cracker Ingredients reduce the amount of glycemic carbohydrates, such as sugar, in traditional and whole grain cracker formulas with a neutral or buttery flavor. Rebalance System 50 Cracker Ingredients can be used in trans-fat-free cracker formulas while maintaining appropriate dough machinability and a crispy texture after baking.  The “Good For You” whole grain cracker prototype at Snaxpo 2005 features 3 grams of dietary fiber and 5 grams of protein per 30 gram serving, offering consumers a “Good Source of Fiber” with a moderate increase in protein when compared with the traditional crackers.
