Leavening Innovation

Increasing Opacity in Tortillas


Translucency can be a major quality problem for tortilla manufacturers as consumers prefer products with a more opaque appearance and uniform texture. Translucent spots can not only be visually unappealing for consumers but they are an indicator of inconsistent texture. 

Innophos has solved this industry challenge with Cal-Rise® CAPP and MCPA a calcium-based leavening solution that helps minimize translucency compared to common leavening systems. Cal-Rise® provides similar dough characteristics to ingredients like SAPP, SAS and SALP while also providing a 20% reduction in sodium. By increasing opacity, Cal-Rise® allows manufacturers to provide the consistent tortilla texture that consumers are seeking.
