EHL unveils Brazilian blend
EHL Ingredients has launched a new Brazilian ingredient blend in time for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
The Brazilian-style churrasco seasoning contains a blend of red bell peppers, black pepper, tomato, onion, garlic and bay leaf, and works particularly well in grilled chicken dishes. EHL believes traditional Brazilian foods – incorporating beans, cashews, peanuts and chillies, as well as meat marinades, sauces and seasonings for churrascos – will be popular this summer.
Christine Peers, sales director at EHL Ingredients, said: “With the Olympics taking place in Rio in August, we anticipate that ingredients and dishes from Brazil will experience a boost in popularity in the UK, influencing the flavour combinations and products available to consumers. Our new Brazilian blend is set to be a popular choice among butchers and food manufacturers creating Brazilian frozen and chilled dishes, as well as for supermarket shelves and foodservice outlets.
“There has been a rise in Brazilian restaurants in many cities in the UK, with consumers eager to experience new and exotic flavours. Butchers and meat processors can tap into the worldwide sporting celebration by experimenting with authentic Brazilian ingredients and blends.”
EHL has also launched a new BBQ seasoning – a blend of smoked paprika, tomato, celery and mustard; as well as a Memphis BBQ dry marinade – a sweet blend with a slightly tangy soya sauce note, enhanced with chilli herbs and allspice.
It has also developed a smoked paprika, tomato and parsley stuffing mix.
Peers added: “Consumers are gearing up for the summer season, and soon the nation will be dusting off the barbecue and enjoying the warmer weather – with the Olympics set to be a driver for South American-style ingredients and recipes. Our new Brazilian and BBQ blends and seasonings will enhance the traditional classics, such as grilled meat and vegetable dishes, as well as adding authentic world flavours to the mix.
