Jason Bull, Director, Eurostar Commodities said; “We recognise that there is a huge opportunity to create a healthier flour for making wraps and tortilla. The market for these products is growing steadily in Europe and predicted to grow by 5.5% by 2027. However, the quality of some of these products, and some of the preservatives used are not what consumers want right now. We are seeing continued interest in clean labelling and a movement towards simple, clean, and wholesome foods. This new range will provide the variety and high quality to create many different clean label products for industry and ultimately home cooks and bakers.”
Clean label refers to creating a product using fewer and more easily recognised natural and wholesome ingredients: Ingredients you can pronounce; Ingredients that are non-GM (genetically modified); Ingredients that do not contain artificial colours, gums, additives, preservatives, or E numbers. Eurostar Commodities new facilities will focus on health and wellness to create products of which they are proud.
With a focus on producing health and wellness ingredients Eurostar Commodities has invested £600k in new clean label production facilities at their Yorkshire headquarters. Eurostar’s gluten free clean label Tortilla flour offers a workable dough, and produces soft and flexible flatbreads that smell, feel, and taste just like the real thing. Other products include gluten-free, clean-label, plain and self-raising flours, pizza flour, chapatti flour for home cooking and for industry. Further new launches of branded ranges of products are planned for 2022.
