New Delhi, Aug 1 (ANI-BusinessWireIndia): DuPont Nutrition and Health sets a new direction for India's flat bread market with the launch of its array of solutions for Indian roti's in packaged format.

The new concept of packaged roti is inspired from the growing need for convenience food by the Indian household. Rich in healthy carbs from whole wheat grain, the concept targets consumers who are turning their back on traditional homemade roti's and demand for a semi-cooked or ready-to- eat format with home cooked freshness and taste.

"Indian flat bread, popularly known as roti is an integral part of the Indian diet. A majority of them are made at home with a very limited shelf-life. But in this fast paced world and changing consumer trends, there is an increased need to change the way roti's are made," said Business Head South Asia DuPont Nutrition and Health, Parth Patel.

"At DuPont Nutrition and Health we have put in years of research to develop products that would transform the way roti's are produced, consumed and distributed," added Parth Patel.

" Roti is an essential part of our diet and our aim is to extend the reach of this product across India; keeping intact the freshness and textural attributes closer to a homemade roti. We are committed to providing innovative solutions to the local Indian food palette and therefore will continue to explore all possible opportunities to add value to this segment," said Senior Application Specialist DuPont Nutrition and Health, Sunil Nair.

Recent scientific studies at the company's largest research and development center for food ingredients in Brabrand, Denmark have explored fundamental mechanisms and flour components that contribute to flat bread quality.

The findings shed new light on the effects of functional ingredients in roti

recipes including soy proteins. Keeping this in mind, DuPont Nutrition and Health scientists have developed a versatile range of fresh-keeping solutions to improve softness, taste and shelf-life of this Indian staple. The comprehensive range comprising of DuPont™ Danisco ® bakery enzymes, emulsifiers and hydrocolloids enables manufacturers to improve textural properties of ready-to- eat flat breads.

The result is having roti's with a stay-fresh feel, lasting flexibility and no dry edges. Consumers can now enjoy their meals with roti's, ready to be folded and rolled without cracking even after weeks on the shelf.

To cater to the needs of the larger Indian population who are vegetarians, manufacturers also have the flexibility to improve the nutritional profile by fortifying roti's with DuPont™ Danisco ® range of functional soy protein without compromising on the taste.

DuPont™ Danisco ® is the brand for a range of products that help provide enhanced bio-protection, an improved nutritional profile, and better taste and texture with greater cost efficiency and lower environmental impact, meeting the needs of manufacturers of food and beverages, dietary supplements and pet food.

Through the work of the global network of food scientists and technologists in DuPont, the Danisco ® range is supported by a uniquely broad spectrum of know- how across applications and processing.
