GoodMills Innovation’s TIP-TOP® Ultra Clean range offers a solution to the issue of fine dust when using release flours. The flours are hydrothermally treated to reduce the amount of dust they produce, with benefits for employee health and safety, factory hygiene and production efficiency.

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 flour.

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.

TIP-TOP® Ultra Clean also enables bakeries to make cost savings through extended maintenance and cleaning intervals, reduced wear and tear to equipment and shorter cleaning routines, GoodMills explains. The low dust load protects fine ball bearings and sensitive electronics, plus light barriers stay cleaner for longer. Costly repairs and unplanned downtime are reduced and maintenance internals and equipment lifespan are prolonged. Additionally, the unique refining process results in a particle structure that delivers increased release performance. The company calculates that, when replacing standard dusting flours with TIP-TOP® release flours, consumption can be reduced by up to 70%.

The TIP-TOP® Ultra Clean range includes clean-label flour varieties tailored to different applications and produced from different grains. TIP-TOP® Ultra Clean is made exclusively from wheat grains, and tje TIP-TOP® Ultra Clean RYE is a variant made from milled rye. Used for dusting, they result in a traditional and rustic ‘flour dusted’ look, and used as a release flour, they deliver a shiny, flaky crust.
