Food manufacturers and QSRs looking for fresh inspiration across a range of dessert and bakery applications will love the latest new product from leading European inclusions specialist and food tailor Pecan Deluxe Candy: cheesecake pieces.
Supplied frozen, the pieces are created from completely natural, clean label ingredients and provide both new flavour and texture opportunities across multiple applications. Free flowing even at volume, they are ideal for adding to ice cream produced at small or large scale levels, and work well in conjunction with other ingredients such as biscuit pieces and sauces. Pecan Deluxe can even blend a biscuit crumb into the piece to make a miniature cheesecake bite.
The cheesecake pieces also perform well in numerous bakery applications, adding a whole new taste & texture dimension to items such as brownies, muffins and cookies. Pastry and bread style products like turnovers or Danish pastries would be great partners too.
Supplied in bulk, Pecan Deluxe cheesecake pieces are manufactured to order so almost any flavour can be specified, with fruit flavours such as lemon or raspberry expected to be particularly popular.
Pecan Deluxe Europe Research & Development Director Liz Jones explained: “In the furore over shrinking portions in confectionery and other sectors, it’s easy to forget that what the consumer wants above all else is a delicious and satisfying food experience. To meet that demand the food industry is constantly crying out for innovative solutions that will satisfy the most discerning palate, and that’s just where Pecan Deluxe comes in. Our food tailoring expertise, backed up by an almost infinite range of delicious ingredients, is an unbeatable combination when it comes to inspiring food solutions across just about any application or sector.”
All Pecan Deluxe products – which include traditionally made but innovatively flavoured fudges, moulded chocolate shapes, brownie pieces and praline nuts – are made using natural colours and flavourings in strict allergen controlled, BRC double A grade facilities, and the company is constantly innovating to develop new flavour and texture options.
