Olive Seed Flour

  

An exciting and innovative product, olive seed flour is a functional food and provides solutions to the problems presented by gluten-free doughs.  Our Olive Seed Flour contains high levels of vegetable protein, fiber, monounsaturated fats and antioxidant polyphenols. The seeds are ground mechanically to incorporate the flour into doughs and other cereal-based goods. This flour is an excellent ingredient to increase the elasticity of gluten-free bread. 


The novelty of our olive seed flour has the capacity to provide greater elasticity to gluten-free spongy doughs with three extra advantages: 

· 100% Natural Ingredient

· Suitable for clean label

· Easy application


Adding olive seed flour at levels of 1.5- 6 % can be sufficient to obtain excellent results. Our olive seed flour does not create an adverse flavor or color and is indicated for both industrial manufacturers and artisan bakers. It can be used in all gluten-free applications that require volume such as; breads, muffins, biscuits and croissants. It can also be added into other products to improve functional properties such as; enriched with vitamins, omega 3 fatty acids, etc. 


Characteristics: 

  • High Stability: Shelf life is more than two years
  • Gluten-Free: Olive seed flour can be used in gluten-free products providing greater elasticity in doughs and bakery products
  • ECOCERT Certificate: Holds the seal of ECOCERT, the highest European Certification authority for natural products and sustainable agriculture. Country of origin is Spain. 
  • Higher Concentration: Because the volume and variety of active compounds in the seed is higher than in the rest of the olive fruit and thus the flour; olive seed flour serves as an excellent ingredient for both functional and clean label products.
