Tiger bread

Join the Tiger Hype

What is tiger bread? Whether you call it tiger bread, giraffe bread, or Dutch Crunch. It is undeniable this crust application has a rich history. From rice flour used in Asian cuisine to the Dutch discovering its use on loaves of bread, this crunchy crust is conquering the world. In America and the United Kingdom, it’s already sold for a while, but now people are getting more creative with its application, expanding to not only bread but also croissants, panini, pretzels, and much more!

The traditional struggles and our solutions

Unfortunately, tiger paste is not easy to apply. It is usually done through manual labour which limits the production speed considerably, this start-stop process restricts the maximum output quantity. Due to uneven depositing the tiger paste slumps into the corners which, when baking, become very hard and unpleasant. Luckily our FoodJet technology enables you to create delicious tiger paste foods with accuracy, positioning, and continuous industrial speed. Our advanced vision technology enables you to deposit in any shape or size you wish and accurately depositor the paste onto each loaf of bread without spilling on the tin or transportation system.

How does it work?

The nozzles of our depositor's heads apply small and equal amounts of tiger paste on each product for a perfectly consistent layer. Our vision technology ensures that the tiger paste is exactly deposited above the tins, no mess, no wasted product, and at industrial speed. As shown before the baking process it looks like a smooth surface layer on the tiger bread in tins. When it's baked the paste crumbles up into the unique tiger-like crust shape.
