Cereclean, a 100% ’Clean Label’ preservative for bakery products

Catherine Ryall - 02-août-2018 15:54:01
Keenly aware of consumer expectations in terms of natural and ’Clean Label’ ingredients, Limagrain Céréales Ingrédients (LCI) is proud to present the newest addition to its range,  CERECLEAN . CERECLEAN  is a ’Clean Label’ preservative (fermented wheat flour) that provides the same results as a chemical preservative such as calcium propionate (additive E282), potassium sorbate (additive E202) or alcohol. Over time, breads, buns and pastries are susceptible to mould as well as to loss of flavour and texture. Bakery product preservatives slow this process down. In the past, for bread to keep, it was left to ferment for a long time ahead of baking. This process led to organic acids occurring naturally in the dough, which ensured a longer shelf life. Today, LCI revisits these old methods with CERECLEAN! CERECLEAN  is a fermented wheat flour with a controlled fermentation process, which provides a targeted production of naturally occurring organic acids to keep bakery products fresher for longer. Simple to use and with the reassurance that ’fermented wheat flour’ can be listed in the end-product ingredient list,  CERECLEAN  ensures the long shelf-life of breads, buns and pastries, without any loss of flavour or texture. Pauline Arramy, Bakery Market Manager at LCI, explains: " CERECLEAN   again demonstrates our expertise in functional flours and bread-making:   CERECLEAN   has the advantage of being more effective than the preservatives commonly used on the market today, for long shelf life, whilst being 100% ’Clean Label ’".

Fran Lambert - 03-sept.-2015 15:21:09
Following its success in France, pasta restaurant chain Francesca® looks set to open five new restaurants in England this autumn. Its flagship restaurant at 215 Baker Street, London, opened in 2012. Francesca® will soon be opening a restaurant in Birmingham’s brand new shopping centre, Grand Central.  People on the move will also be able to enjoy authentic Italian cuisine on the food courts of four motorway service stations: Beaconsfield (M40 J2), Cambridge (A14 – M11), Baldock (A1M J10) and Peterborough (A1M J17).  Whether it’s a little corner of Italy in the heart of Birmingham or just off the motorway, members of the public will be able to sample high-quality, fast casual dining at Francesca® (eat-in or take away), with a choice of up to 18 freshly prepared sauces and three varieties of durum wheat pasta, as well as an assortment of salads, antipasti, lasagne, cannelloni, panini, desserts, real Italian coffees and wine.  Founded in 1998 with over 50 restaurants in France and abroad, Francesca® provides healthy and balanced meals that live up to Italian cuisine’s excellent reputation. Francesca®’s company model proudly reflects the traditions upheld by high-quality Italian food and its respect for consumers and suppliers.  Francesca Albanese, co-founder of the Francesca® franchise, makes it her priority to source top-quality ingredients straight from Italy, which she then transforms into 18 deliciously fresh, homemade pasta sauces. All pasta dishes are free of preservatives or artificial flavours, and are based on traditional recipes and cooking techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation in Francesca Albanese’s family. Francesca Albanese is fond of flavours promoted by the cucina contemporanea Italiana. Restaurants only use Pomi d’Oro tomatoes from the Naples region (southern Italy), extra virgin olive oil from the Puglie region (southern Italy) and GMO-free products. All dishes are served with authentic parmesan cheese imported from Parma (northern Italy). Whether eating in or taking away, Francesca®’s menu offers each customer a diverse range of good, authentic Italian cuisine. The menu includes antipasti, salads, mains, desserts and coffee — all at affordable prices. Francesca® restaurants also offer seasonal menus and regularly add new dishes. Restaurants offer a full and varied range of meals throughout the day. The delicatessen area also allows customers to take home the flavours of Francesca®’s cooking.  Restaurant interiors combine chic décor with a friendly ambience, balancing the simplicity of Italian life with the sophistication of Italian culture. The restaurant chain is currently in the process of expanding into the United Kingdom, and is opening restaurants at the following locations: 1.     Beaconsfield services (24 September 2015) 2.     Grand Central Birmingham shopping centre (30 September 2015) 3.     Cambridge services (22 October 2015) 4.     Baldock services (21 November 2015) 5.     Peterborough services (19 December 2015) The Francesca® brand is offering one free meal to any journalist who wishes to know more about its restaurants, the company and its franchise. Journalists wishing to benefit from this special offer and discover the Francesca® concept are invited to contact Business France – The French Trade Commission in London (details below).  About Francesca In 1997, Francesca Arbogast-Albanese and Bertrand Arbogast decided to share their love of Italian cuisine by founding Francesca®, a traditional Italian restaurant, in Strasbourg (eastern France).
