Bakery & Confectionary

The bakery and confectionery market is one of the largest in the food industry, with the UK bakery market being worth an estimated £3.6 billion. From large-scale industrial bakeries to in-store bakeries, MegaChem provides a wide range of chemical products for wholesale purchase including:

  • Bulking agents – These agents are used to increase the bulk volume of the bread without affecting the taste.
  • Preservatives – Shelf life is an issue with baked goods that can be improved through the use of preservatives.
  • Processing aids – Our processing aids are used within bakeries to perform a number of applications including increasing loaf volume, improving heat resistance, prolonging shelf life and improving the elasticity of the dough.
  • Sweeteners – Sweeteners can be effectively used in bakery products to lower the calorie content of the product without impacting on the taste.
  • Emulsifiers – Emulsifiers are often added to baked products to improve texture, increase volume and prevent oils from separating.
  • Stabilisers – Stabilisers are used in commercial bakeries to help improve the structure of the mix and thus contribute to a better final product.
  • Extracts – Extracts may be used within bakeries to create different flavours of product without impacting the shelf life.
  • Others – Our range of other chemical products for bakeries includes fruit pieces, essential oils, colourings, spice oils and much more.
