Though any experienced baker knows that the baking process is a "kill step," the industry wasn't able to validate it until AIB International began releasing its kill step calculators in 2015.

"The research behind each of the kill step calculators has easily saved the baking industry hundreds of thousands of dollars," said Brian Strouts, Vice President, Baking and Food Technical Services. "And since AIB International had previously conducted a series of scientific validation studies this project just made sense."

The momentum for this project started with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). New requirements call for each FDA-registered food manufacturing facility in the United States to scientifically demonstrate and document the kill step in baked goods production. AIB International has released calculators that validate the kill step for Salmonellain hamburger buns, basic muffins, nut muffins, multigrain bread, crispy cookies, soft cookies, doughnuts, flour tortillas, and cheesecakes.
