22 Mar 2017 --- According to Dalziel Ingredients, green veg is on trend – the company has created some quirky new techniques to meet demand for innovative vegetable products.

It follows the rise of spiralizing, cauliflower rice, flexitarian, hidden veg and the general reduction of carbohydrates in diets.

The UK specialist in bespoke seasoning blends, cures and functional ingredients has developed bespoke concepts featuring colored batter for deep fried vegetable snacks, and unusual flavor sprinkles. 

Examples include colored, textured and high visual batters for tempura vegetables, flavor sprinkles, coatings and crumbs for cauliflower, and other vegetarian products.

They are being used to customize vegetable products for food manufacturers, food service and retailers.

Fran Hutton, Product Development Manager at Dalziel Ingredients, explained this reflected the company’s approach to pushing boundaries with new techniques and products.

“There is ever growing demand from food processors and retailers for innovation concepts to take the health benefits of vegetables and increase their appeal to people of all ages.” 

“We help clients look for interesting ways to add a new twist to their menus.  At our state-of-the-art development center, we focus on taking ideas and delivering appealing, commercially viable end-products,” says Hutton.

All Dalziel Ingredients’ products – seasonings, complete mixes, rubs, glazes, functional blends, batters, crumbs, snack seasonings, cures and brines – can be developed as gluten free, and existing products can re reformulated to be gluten free.

Dalziel Ingredients’ product development team advises food manufacturers on new flavor concepts and trends, market analysis, factory processes, recipe formulations and product quality enhancements.

Functionality, appearance and flavor are all important trademarks of the Dalziel Group, which has a heritage as a market leading, family owned food service specialist going back nearly 90 years.
