Croissants

Fermaid® XTR is a complete conditioner for improving dough stability, machinability, loaf volume, crumb structure, and softness of various breads produced by different processes. Fermaid® XTR can be used in all types of yeast raised bread products like croissants.

Croissants, named for its distinctive crescent shape, are made from sweet folded pastry, containing a high real butter component, resulting in lovely, light flaky layers of pastry. It can be enjoyed as a sweet or savoury snack.
