Limagrain Céréales Ingrédients launches 2 new ingredients

Manon Cabrol - 30-oct.-2017 16:36:45

Limagrain Céréales Ingrédients  (LCI) have developed 2 new functional ingredients for professionals in the baking industry: BRICKS and NUTRICORN. Easy to incorporate into product formulations with the option of adapting them as per the needs of clients, LCI aim to help professionals innovate and make their ingredient lists even clearer and more transparent. Meet them at  Food Matters Live on booth 267 from 21st - 23rd November 2017 to discover their solutions first-hand.   Build improvers BRICK by BRICK Conceived in-house following a thorough analysis of client requirements and extensive testing by their R&D team, BRICKS is a new range of bread improvers. This new range is now available everywhere in Europe. Suitable for baking businesses of all sizes and capacities, BRICKS has been developed especially for use in sliced bread and viennoiserie.  LCI provide the BRICKS , that is, the ‘base ingredients’ for bread improvers. BRICK by BRICK , benefitting from LCI’s advice and technical expertise, clients can build their own improver(s) fully adapted to their bread products. Aimed to be as flexible as possible to meet the various needs within the bread-making industry, the range includes several options: Ready-to use ‘bricks’ for specific requirements such as improved product softness Companies can also mix and match with a selection of ‘bricks’ as required Bespoke blend options whereby baking businesses can develop ‘bricks’ as desired. As an international agricultural cooperative group, LCI can develop formulations internally, meaning clients retain control of formulations and end-product recipes can remain confidential.    NUTRICORN: a combination of taste and health to bake better products NUTRICORN , is toasted corn germ which can be used to enhance the taste and nutritional value of bakery products.  The germ is the most nutritional part of maize grain, naturally rich in fibre (20%), protein (20%) and minerals (including magnesium, potassium and phosphorus). Nutricorn can enhance the nutritional profile of the end product. LCI toast NUTRICORN to improve product taste , which is similar to hazelnut. The toasting process is natural and ensures the nutritional value of the germ is preserved. From fully traceable maize grains grown by Limagrain farmers, the ingredient brings a crunch, a lightly toasted taste and an appealing bright colour to bakery products. Benefits of NUTRICORN: Offers the natural benefits of corn germ (fibre, protein, magnesium) while improving the taste and/or texture of bakery products Multipurpose: can be used in different bakery products, such as bread, pastries, cakes cereal bars, tortilla chips, biscuits and more Versatile: NUTRICORN can be used as a topping or baked in the product Allergen-free: does not contain any of the 14 main allergens (including gluten or nuts) NUTRICORN is rich in magnesium: only 7g of Nutricorn is all that’s needed in a final product for it to qualify as a ‘source of magnesium’, that is 57mg of magnesium per 100g! Lower costs: Nuts, and particularly hazelnuts and almonds, are expensive products and prices can fluctuate significantly. NUTRICORN is an ideal replacement for nuts in numerous products. The ingredient can lower recipe costs used as both a total and/or partial substitution.  LCI will be exhibiting at  Food Matters Live booth 267 at ExCel London from 21st - 23rd November 2017, don’t miss this opportunity to find out more about their new ingredients.   About Limagrain CEREALES INGREDIENTS A unique position, from seed to consumer Limagrain Céréales Ingrédients (LCI) is a subsidiary of Limagrain, an international French cooperative group created and directed by French farmers.

UK Cider only has to have 35% apples in it?

Laure Bidault des Chaumes - 16-mai-2017 12:46:40

100% apple, new premium French cidre brand  6Somewhere launches in almost 500 Tesco stores • No added sugar, flavourings or colourings, gluten-free and made from 100% apples • The brand is aimed at all those who are interested in health and what they put in their body, whilst focusing on quality and sharing good times – it’s always 6 Somewhere , don’t forget! • French cidre brand  6Somewhere plans to raise awareness of alcopops masquerading as cider Nothing but apples and craft We are working with the Huet family and the Dupont family. These two cideries have been crafting their cidre for more than 125 years and have created three delicious gluten-free cidres for the UK market, made from 100% apples and nothing else. There’s an awful lot of chat about ‘craft’ going on at the moment, especially in beer. However, no-one’s really doing anything different in cider. So, if you think that using only the finest quality produce, utilising years of experience and expertise, and then calling your mate who has a bottling plant on the back of his lorry to bottle your product is ‘craft’ - then you’d love our Premier Cru from the Dupont family. Why not pair meals with cider? The sweet cidre is a perfect aperitif on a hot summer’s day, and an attractive alternative to fizzy wines for those who want to reduce their alcohol intake. The semi-dry cidre goes really well with pork (sausages, ribs and chops) and also chicken, so is a well-matched accompaniment to a BBQ with family or friends. 51% of consumers surveyed by Lightspeed/Mintel stated that apple was their favourite flavour of cider – so what a pity so few of them currently contain much of it! According to a recent survey conducted by Canvas 8 for Heineken ’Taste (41%) and quality (32%) are the priorities when choosing an alcoholic drink’.    “These new lines give customers a taste of a traditional Normandie Cidre at a great price” said Rosie Goodson, Tesco Buying Manager, “The two different cidres means that customers can try a variation of styles within the growing cider range, giving them an opportunity to explore and discover new flavours”. Both the semi-dry and sweet 6Somewhere variations (75cl bottles) will be on promotion at Tesco for £5.00 (normal RRP £7.00) from Tuesday 16th May for 3 weeks.    COMPANY BIO 6Somewhere was founded by Tony Watson who was at Carlsberg for over 20 years ending up as the Vice President National Accounts and Rik Roberts who worked at PepsiCo and Red Bull looking after a number of channels and accounts  FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: rik@6somewhere.com +44 7890 275420 www.6somewhere.com
