DISCLOSURE OF BAKING PROCESS INFORMATION
Made Better is at the heart of Dare Foods, as seen in our commitment to creating high-quality products that meet our consumers’ expectations. As part of this commitment, we want our consumers to know what goes into making our products.
At our Kitchener facility we use leavening agents as part of the baking process – as all bakers do. Leavening agents cause an expansion in doughs and batters by the release of gases during the baking process. Without leavening agents bakers could not bake. At our facility in Kitchener, ON we use ammonium bicarbonate, a commonly used leavening agent, in our baking process. During the baking process, the leavening agent breaks down into three components: water, carbon dioxide and ammonia. 100% of the ammonia and carbon dioxide evaporate during the baking process, and are removed from the facility via baking exhaust systems.
Environment Canada guidelines require public reporting on the use or production of certain substances, including ammonia. More Information can be viewed here plan_summary.pdf.
