Improver

The improver used is not specified by this manufacturer. Some flour improvers like IN924(a) are banned from use in food by many countries because they are carcinogens.

We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to avoid clearly stating what ingredients have been used.

Flour treatment agents (also called improving agents, bread improvers, dough conditioners and dough improvers) are food additives combined with flour to improve baking functionality. Flour treatment agents are used to increase the speed of dough rising and to improve the strength and workability of the dough. While they are an important component of modern factory baking, some small-scale bakers reject them in favour of longer fermentation periods that produce greater depth of flavour.
