Have a pretty extensive knowledge of baking science and ingredients. I’ve never heard of vita bar.Not sure..I'm trying to find out. Apparently it was used in an old sub roll recipe.
The vast majority of preservatives are only available to the trade. There is a source in the US that makes a few preservatives and additives available to the retail market. I don’t know if they sell the preservative you identified as vita bar. It’s called the modernist pantry. I’ve purchased some obscure items like mono and diglyceride, ultratex and expandex from them.I actually found out it is a preserve . The recipe also calls for bromite which I found many substitutes for.
I just found out wnat vita bar was today. I can now find a substitute for that as well.
I will post the recipe once I find the perfect substitute s for those 2 ingredients.
Yes that same bromite.
Dependox is one of the replacement s I'm looking at.
We are a retail/wholesale bakery.
If you’re in the US, for commercial production advice, try calling Keith Giusto Bakery Supply in Petaluma California. The Giusto family has been involved in bakery and milling for four generations. Keith Giusto and his nephew are expert bakers. His nephew has completed in the Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie. So they know bread.
