Lutkala has high water retention properties, which makes it applicable as a thickener for products, such as bread and pastry. When used as an additive, it:
- allows to bake healthy bread rich in fiber while ensuring easier production process. This is especially important for products intended for highly-developed countries, where the supply of high-fiber articles on the market is rapidly decreasing,
- extends freshness,
- allows to reduce sugar and fat contents,
- enhances the texture and taste of gluten-free products,
- may naturally supplement dietary fiber deficiencies without decreasing the sensory parameters.
