Innovative Food Ingredients offer a huge range of Gluten Free products

Gluten is the protein component found in wheat, rye and barley. The modern diet can mean consuming more gluten than we did previously, resulting in more and more people becoming sensitive to Gluten.  This is why we at IFI have focused on offering a Gluten Free range to our customers.

AVO Lafiness Oil Based Marinades from Innovative Food Ingredients

Our fabulous Gluten Free range includes a wide range of options, including marinades, glazes, crumbs, sausage mixes and burger mixes.

Our range of AVO Lafiness Oil Based Marinades are all Gluten Free, HVP Free and allergen free, and come in over 30 fantastic flavours.  They have each been specially created using the finest quality ingredients and offer an excellent visual appeal.

The Alfresco Butcher have a new range of Gluten Free glazes available, fabulous for flavouring any meat this BBQ season. The range includes a Chinese style Glaze, a Garlic Butter Glaze, a Hot & Spicy Glaze to bring the zing to your pork chops, a Mint glaze which is great for lamb and a classic Smokey BBQ Glaze to bring the BBQ taste indoors, whatever the weather may be!

Our range includes four different Gluten Free crumbs from AVO, suitable for all meats. Their classic Gluten Free Crumb is a superb, catch-all crumb that enhances all substrates and applications. The Gluten Free Alabama Crumb is inspired by one of our best selling flavour profiles, and is attractive, delicious and very moreish.  AVO’s Gluten Free Tomato and Herb Crumb is a vibrant, colourful and very flavoursome addition to the range.  They also offer a distinct Gluten Free Curry Crumb – crispy, punchy and doesn’t hold back on taste.

Arthur Pipkins now offer four different Gluten Free sausage mixes in our range including the Premium Cumberland Sauage Mix, the Olde English Sausage Mix, the Lincolnshire Sausage Mix and a traditional Pork Sausage Mix.  Their Premium Gluten Free Burger Mix & Chopped Onion is also available, making it easy to make BBQ’s a Gluten Free zone this summer!

If you’re looking for something a bit special to offer your customer – AVO’s Premium Black Garlic Marinade is also Gluten Free! A fine balance of ingredients, excellent with poultry, lamb and beef. Black Garlic contains twice as many antioxidants as raw garlic, which is sure to be an added selling point!

Whatever your flavour preference, it’s certain that we have something to appeal to those who have decided to avoid gluten in their diet.  View our Gluten Free products here, or contact us to find out more from a member of the team.

New AVO Lafiness Marinades On The Block!

New AVO Lafiness Marinades On The Block!

Innovative Food Ingredients (IFI) is a highly respected family owned business who specialise in the distribution of quality food ingredients throughout the UK. IFI are distributors for global food ingredients manufacturers, AVO, a leading European spice, spice blends, liquid marinade and sauce specialist, Taste of Goodness Sauces and Newly Weds Foods (NWF) including the well established Arthur Pipkins brand and the RHMI range.

In addition to IFI’s pledge to provide their customers with quality products, at a true value for money price, they recognise that innovation is key to ensuring that customers remain satisfied, that they are offered products that mirror on trend flavours and also novel and interesting methods of preparation and display.

In perfect time for the forthcoming barbecue season the new products include additions to the very successful AVO Lafiness range of oil based marinades. Tandoori, Chakalaka, Wild Garlic, Whiskey & Black Pepper and Black Garlic have been selected further to customer feedback, usage trials and tastings.

Quality, convenience, flavour and value for money are always guaranteed by AVO Lafiness marinades. Available in 4kg pails, and at an only 8% usage rate, they offer excellent cost in use.

David Brennand, Managing Director of IFI says “We continually strive to identify and develop new products to keep our portfolio fresh and interesting. We take our ideas from several sources but most importantly we are inspired by our customers and what they are telling us. One of the main concerns raised by our customers and the reason why we strive to extend our range of marinades, is that some of the longer standing products on the market aren’t true marinades but just sit on the surface of the product. The AVO Lafiness marinades are functional. They add flavour, help tenderise and the oil protects the meat from burning during cooking, whether that’s on the barbecue or in the oven.”

An extensive range of quality Sausage Seasonings, Sausage & Burger Mixes, Glazes, Coatings, Functional Ingredients, Spice Blends, Liquid Oil Based Marinades, Stir Fry Sauces and Pantry Essentials  are available at competitive prices. FREE demonstrations and samples are also available.

Innovative Food Ingredients Helps Set New Standards In Poultry Sausage Processing

Innovative Food Ingredients (IFI) is a highly respected family owned business who specialise in the distribution of quality food ingredients throughout the UK and Eire. IFI are distributors for global food ingredients manufacturers, AVO, a leading European spice, spice blends, liquid marinade and sauce specialist and Newly Weds Foods (NWF) including the well established Arthur Pipkins brand and the RHMI range.

The manufacture of poultry sausage products has always posed significant challenges to processors and butchers alike. During production, the poultry skin and fat, a microbiologically sensitive ingredient which is often contaminated with less desirable constituents such as feather shafts and quills is used extensively to add succulence, mouthfeel and flavour.

Further to ongoing customer feedback, IFI have sourced a new flavoured product which provides the industry with a credible, safe and cost effective alternative. AVO Vegetable Cream is manufactured from premium quality rapeseed oil which has been processed in such a way that it can be used to substitute poultry skin and fat by up to 20%. It provides a clean flavour profile without the presence of unpleasant flavours or odours, is convenient, easy to use and store, offers superior mouthfeel, enhances product quality and consistency and reduces microbiological risk.

David Brennand, Managing Director of IFI comments “We are delighted to offer our customers a unique and quite revolutionary product. Our team are on hand to answer any queries around suitability, production trials, cost in use and of course the individual benefits to the customer’s process and business. It also has the added benefit of being Halal certified. Pack sizes include 4kg pails which is perfect for the retail butcher upto 900kg tanks with the option of connection to an automatic dosing system.”
