EUROSTAR COMMODITIES LAUNCH GLUTEN FREE CHAPATI FLOUR
Versatile high quality flour for excellent quality results
Eurostar Commodities has launched a brand new Gluten Free Chapati Flour. Developed specifically to produce high quality chapati, Eurostar Commodities Gluten Free Chapati Flour is a premium flour for the softness and flexibility required for producing great consistent results.
Created by Eurostar Commodities’ technical development team the flour is milled using a traditional technique. The flour is gluten free, coeliac friendly, higher in fibre and vegan. The product handles like a traditional flour and offers significant quality in the category.
Philip Bull, MD Eurostar Commodities said; “This launch comes on the back of significant research and development. We recognise the increasing consumer demand for gluten-free products, however, within this category there is varying quality. For us, the most important thing is quality. We wanted to create a product that has excellent extensibility that is consistently reliable and ultimately tastes incredible, with great texture – certainly as good as, if not better than similar products which contain gluten. What many people like is that it also comes in a traditional white flour which is an extremely popular choice. ”
Eurostar Commodities Gluten Free Chapati Flour is available in 1.5kg and 3kg bags and is available in three varieties; Medium Brown, White and Wholemeal (launching January 2020); and also available in wholesale bulk quantities for food manufacturing.
Mintel reports that 15% of UK households are now avoiding gluten so demand has widened beyond medical need as food intolerances have become more widely accepted and more people opt for “free-from” and “clean-label” products as a lifestyle choice. Euromonitor forecasts the global gluten free retail market at $4.7bn by 2020 (up from $3.5bn in 2016). Gluten-free foods have been consumed for many years by those with coeliac disease, a disorder in which their immune system reacts to gluten, a protein found in grains such as wheat and barley.
This builds on the success of Eurostar Commodities Spelt and Rye chapati flours. With more natural processing and enhanced flavour properties Spelt and Rye has increased absorption benefits. Spelt and Rye chapati flour blends older grains of rye and spelt to produce a tasty chapati, high in quality and with the softness and flexibility required for producing a great result. Rye and spelt give a rich hearty taste and retain a larger quantity of nutrients than other types of grains when milled. They’re a good source of fibre and minerals and are higher in protein than wheat flour. Because they are low GI the products are also good for diabetics.
