GoodMills’ TIP-TOP flour range tackle fine dust

GoodMills Innovation’s TIP-TOP® Ultra Clean range is offering a solution to the long-standing issue of fine dust for bakeries and baking industries using release flours.

The flours are hydrothermally treated to reduce the amount of dust they produce, with tangible benefits for employee health and safety, factory hygiene and production economics. Companies that use the flours can minimise their risk of exposure to respiratory diseases, while benefiting from reduced cleaning and maintenance and a mould-free environment.

Low-dust TIP-TOP release flours are hydrothermally treated, a physical process during which the fine fractions are aggregated into larger particles. These higher density particles settle quickly, keeping the working environment free from airborne particles.

Measurements performed in bakeries have confirmed that TIP-TOP Ultra Clean produces up to 80% less respirable dust compared to common wheat flour1. This mitigates the risk of respiratory diseases such as baker’s asthma, promoting a safer workplace for bakers.

A further benefit of the thermal treatment is that it inactivates the flour’s enzymes and creates a water-repellant surface structure that prevents microbiological growth. For an industry that has long accepted mould as part and parcel of a humid working environment, this represents a breakthrough.

Thanks to TIP-TOP Ultra Clean’s active mould prevention action, bakers no longer have to contend with visible mould on boards, fermentation carriers, conveyor belts, cloths and proofing baskets or with the invisible spores that present a risk to health. By eliminating the growth of microorganisms, they can maintain a clean, safe and hygienic workplace.

The flours also enables bakeries to make cost savings through extended maintenance and cleaning intervals, reduced wear and tear to equipment and shorter cleaning routines. The low dust load protects fine ball bearings and sensitive electronics, and light barriers stay cleaner for longer.

The range also includes clean label flour varieties tailored to different applications and produced from different grains. TIP-TOP Ultra Clean is made exclusively from wheat grains, whilst TIP-TOP Ultra Clean RYE is a variant made from milled rye. Both flours can enhance the appearance of breads, pastries and other baked goods.

Used for dusting, they result in a traditional and rustic ‘flour dusted’ look and used as a release flour, deliver the shiny, flaky crust consumers expect from wheat baked goods.
