Some of Eurostar Commodities key products and new launches for 2019 include:
Eurostar Commodities Gluten Free Flour
Eurostar Commodities Gluten Free Flour is a premium all-rounder developed for versatility in producing a variety of different high quality products, including pizza dough. Gluten free, coeliac friendly and vegan, the product has been developed to handle like a traditional flour and offers significant quality in the category.
Created by Eurostar Commodities’ technical development team the flour is milled in Italy using a traditional Italian technique. This new high-end premium top quality gluten free flour has been developed for excellent, consistent performance for bakery, cakes and desserts as well as all styles of gluten free pizza bases including Neapolitan, plus speciality breads like focaccia and ciabatta.
Eurostar Commodities Gluten Free Flour is available in 25kg bags. It is suitable for gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, coeliac, halal and kosher diets. It contains no allergens or genetically modified ingredients.
Kintaro Sushi Rice
In the face of a predicted European shortage in sushi rice, Eurostar Commodities has secured significant volumes of their staple, premium grade sushi rice. This maintains Eurostar Commodities’ position as the largest supplier of sushi rice by volume, supporting the most famous UK high street sushi brands and keeping sushi on the menu for its millions of regular consumers.
Most of the UK’s sushi rice is traditionally sourced from Italy which has ideal growing conditions to create perfect rice for production and consumption within Europe. However, contributing factors in 2018 included a reduced overall planted area, combined with a subsequent reduced production yield due to the prolonged hot weather. The result is a shortage of rice in the European crop that is unprecedented in recent times.
With properties very similar to traditional Japanese sushi rice, Kintaro Premium grade sushi rice is a premium grade round grain rice, produced using a carefully selected variety specifically for sushi and milled on state of the art Japanese milling machinery.
Grandi Molini Italiani (GMI) pizza flours
Grandi Molini Italiani is recognised as being one of the best mills in Italy consistently delivering premium quality ‘00’ flour in perfect condition via five rail stations and four port terminals. They employ 250 people who all share a passion for bringing only the finest Italian flour. The extensive logistics network means that products arrive at the right time and in perfect condition, every time.
Eurostar Commodities Technical Development Manager, Davide D’Auria says, “I love working with such a beautiful product which gives a perfect rise and a fascinating dough. Grandi Molini Italiani flours give a lot of flexibility for the chef to produce an excellent pizza, whether it is classic Neapolitan or whatever style, it all starts with the flour.”
