The Real Bread Campaign supporter has secured the Innovate UK grant to investigate the potential dietary impact of freezing long-fermented breads. The project run in conjunction with Campden BRI, will evaluate the effects of different freezing processes on starches and any resulting effects of eating them have on blood glucose response, fibre levels and nutrition levels.

Modern Baker co-founder Leo Campbell believes that: “Freezing is a vitally important new frontier for the bread industry. Our research suggests it can add a further healthy dimension to our already healthy bread and cakes, over and above supply chain and wastage advantages.”

The results of three other Innovate UK funded studies being carried out by Modern Baker are expected later this year.
