11 Oct 2016 --- American Key Food Products has for the first time introduced to North America a Brazilian Cheese Bread base for industrial users in the baking and foodservice sectors.  The mix is specially formulated from clean-label, gluten-free and GMO-free ingredients for bakery, snack and foodservice companies to target both traditional and the “better-for-you” specialty consumer segments.

“Known in Brazil as Pão de Queijo, this savory delicacy is gluten-free, as it is made from a blend of native tapioca, or cassava, starches which naturally contain no gluten,” says Mel Festejo, COO at AKFP. “It is also non-GMO, clean label and allergen-free. The shape of Brazilian cheese breads resembles donut holes, and their delightful, lightly crispy crust covers a soft and light inner crumb. It has been a favorite snack in Brazil, made in home kitchens and local bakeries for generations. Our Brazilian partner, Cassava S/A, is a leader in tapioca/cassava production in South America and has created this excellent ready-mix which makes Brazilian Cheese Bread available to wholesale or foodservice bakers here.”

This Brazilian Cheese Bread mix offers simplicity of preparation and use and provides businesses the flexibility to make their own creations that could include different cheeses and inclusions such as bacon bits or vegetable pieces.

Cassava S/A specially developed this unique mix for distribution in North America exclusively by American Key Food Products. It is manufactured in Brazil to the highest standards of quality, consistency and food safety.
