Abstract

​Biotechnology makes use of living organisms for the production of sustainable, biobased food, feed, fuel, and materials. Biocatalyst enzymes, used to improve the process or product quality of food, are a key example of how industrial biotechnology can be used to help address climate change and resource scarcity. In the bakery market and along the baking value chain, various biotechnology-inspired solutions have already been implemented to reduce the carbon footprint by reducing food waste and loss, lowering energy consumption, and creating clean(er)-label products. Some challenges still remain, especially in realizing sustainable solutions for growing market trends, like healthier or organic baked products.
