Bangers and Mash (well sort of)

November 9th, 2011 | Posted by jwlbrace in uncategorised - (0 Comments)

There’s some interesting work going on in the development kitchen this week.  We’re making sausages, not because we want to get in to selling sausages, but we think we can add our own stamp on the history of the Great British Banger with a special low fat, gluten free system.

The end game will be to produce a range clean label fat reducer system for customers and prospective customers alike and we will begin marketing the new fat reduction system in the new year.

We also keep all our products gluten free where possible, so this could also open up other opportunities for our customers using our fat reduction system in gluten free meats.

So far we’ve been able to reduce fat levels of our ‘standard recipe’ down to sub 4%, more information to follow in due course.

A low fat, gluten free sausage using potato ingredients… that’s got to be a good thing.


The Supermarket Market

Potato Starch, often referred to as Potato Flour, has long been available from specialist outlets, Asian foods supermarkets and even online from ingredients suppliers.   However we are seeing more and more requirement for it directly in mainstream UK supermarkets.

The advantages of Potato Flour are very clear to coeliac and gluten intolerance sufferers as it is 100% freefrom gluten, so no issues over CODEX levels and trace gluten.

It is also 100% GM Free- a natural product processed direct from naturally-bred potatoes.  However, the real hidden gem for consumers is that it also has some unique functional properties for modern day cuisine:

– cleaner, taste neutral flavour (no cereal note)
– clearer sauces with better shine and appearance
– smooth textures when using selected grade Potato Flour
– lower gelatinisation temperature (you use less energy to thicken your food)
