  • ·Improved antifungal shelf life
  • ·Reduced staling
  • ·Increased specific volume and improved yield
  • ·Better crumb structure
  • ·Better crust colour
Velona Acti-Salt is supplied in powder form for both wheat and gluten free baking and should be used as a direct replacement for normal salt.
