New baking products from Dr Oetker and Queen

Dr. Oetker has launched a host of new products which will make baking even better for Aussie sweet treat fans.

Following the launch of the baking and decorating range in October last year, Dr. Oetker has created 10 new products, inspired by the latest trends. Furthermore, vanilla brand Queen is set to introduce seven new products with a focus on flavour and origin. Each of the 17 products have been crafted to enable bakers and decorators of all abilities to produce even more creative cakes and delicious desserts.

The Surprise Inside Cupcake Centres feature a flavourful filling in a ready-to-squeeze packet, allowing bakers to fill cupcakes, donuts and other pastries, without the mess. Available in Rich Chocolate, Salted Caramel and Zesty Lemon, each packet provides enough filling for 12 cupcakes and comes with a handy nozzle.

The existing Sprinkles range has two new additions, Salted Caramel Crunch and Sour Strands. Inspired by the latest flavour trends, these innovative finishes can be used to make party treats salty, sweet or sour, and will be loved by adults and kids alike.

For beginner decorators the Ready Rolled Icing Disc is set to make decorating much easier and quicker. With a diameter of approximately 33cm and a thickness of 3.5mm, the 450g pre-rolled, white icing disc can be easily rolled over a 20cm round cake, giving a smooth finish, in just a few minutes.

Two new Ready to Roll Icing products in White and Coloured have been transformed from the Queen brand to the Dr. Oetker brand. White comes in two sizes, 600g and 1kg, while Coloured comes in a three pack of popular icing colours, red, yellow and black.

For chocoholics, Dr. Oetker has introduced a chocolate flavour to the Designer Icing range. The decadent filling comes in a handy pack which features four nozzles, making it easier to decorate sweet treats in all sizes, from cupcakes to cookies.

The newest addition to the edible decorations range are the Edible Mini Wafer Flowers. Each packet contains 40 flowers in three different colours – blue, yellow and pink with shimmer.

These delicate flowers can be used on cupcakes or special occasion cakes, and add a beautiful finish to any dessert.

The single serve Mug Cakes are available in two flavours; Rich Chocolate and Banana Bread. Taking only one minute to cook in the microwave, the all new Mug Cakes are a single serve treat that is quick, easy and can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime.

Queen, Australia’s vanilla and flavouring extracts brand, has released a range of premium, single origin vanilla products for bakers. Madagascan Vanilla Bean Paste with Seeds and two new Queen Finest Vanilla Extracts celebrate the unique aromatic and flavour profiles of two premium vanilla producing regions, Madagascar and Vava’u, Tonga.

Queen has developed three new Flavours for Icing in Salted Caramel, Choc Espresso and Strawb’ry and Cream. They are perfect for adding intense, on-trend flavours to icings, desserts and no bake treats.

Also new is the Black Food Colour Gel which offers a deep black colour when added to icing and cakes.

Gelato Fiasco arrives in Australia

When Gelato Fiasco hits freezers in Australia for the first time this July, it will not be for the fainthearted. The fusing of small town Portland, Maine, USA and Italian tradition has resulted in an explosion of big flavours packed into a gelato pint – think Sriracha chilli, whiskey, bacon and pancakes.

Gelato Fiasco is the brainchild of Portland, Maine’s Josh Davis and Bruno Tropeano, who spent years learning the techniques and practices of the original Italian masters of gelato. With each pint of Gelato Fiasco containing pockets of sauce and bursting with unexpected ingredients, one thing’s for sure, it’s not your typical gelato.

The Gelato Fiasco range, available from 7-Eleven stores, includes:

  • Wake N’ Bacon: Pancake flavoured gelato with maple syrup and bacon flavoured candies
  • The Big County Brownie: Mint flavoured gelato with brownie pieces and a chocolate sauce
  • Maine Munchies: Peanut butter gelato with salted choc pretzels
  • The Log Cabin: Chocolate gelato, whiskey syrup and Sriracha flake coated almonds

To celebrate the launch, the Gelato Fiasco Log Cabin will pop up in Melbourne’s Fitzroy, opening on Friday, 5 August and running for six weeks.

Organic turmeric spice blend with dandelion root

Melbourne-­based company, Heal’r.com.au has introduced the first organic turmeric spice blend with dandelion root.

The spice blend, known as ‘Root’d’, balances taste with health, for a blend of seven certified organic herbs and spices. The blend contains turmeric, black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, coconut sugar, dandelion root and chicory root.

According to the company, the product can improve gut health; reduce bloating, skin disorders, heart disease, arthritis, inflammation, and infections; and contribute to liver detoxification.

The company says turmeric, ginger, dandelion root and black pepper have anti-inflammatory and anti-aging benefits. The addition of dandelion root is intended to increase liver function and digestion.

It is made from 100% raw, certified organic ingredients which means no nasties, pesticides, artificial flavours or colours. The product is free of gluten, dairy, nuts, refined sugars and caffeine. It is also vegan and paleo friendly.

Sunny Queen serves up a gluten free solution for coeliac sufferers

Sunny Queen Meal Solutions is helping to cater for coeliac sufferers with its pre-prepared real egg meals designed exclusively for commercial kitchens and the hospitality industry. In Australia 1 in 60 women and 1 in 80 men are affected by coeliac disease, and following a strict gluten free diet is the only way they can minimise their symptoms.

Based on research that has shown Australians indulge in 30.5 million take-away and 21 million eat-in visits every month, Kate Di Prima, an accredited practicing dietician with 23 years’ experience, has advised that restaurants revisit their menu offering to help alleviate the grief coeliac customers face when purchasing pre-made meals.

“Food intolerances are becoming more common every day, so it’s important that cafes and restaurants keep up with our changing dietary needs,” she said.

“The safest way to cater for coeliac sufferers is to offer egg options, as eggs are a simple and suitable gluten free solution – high in nutrients and protein, and are naturally gluten free, providing a low risk option for people with coeliac disease.”

John O’Hara, Managing Director of Sunny Queen Meal Solutions, said it’s important for hospitality and catering businesses to cater for all dietary requirements, in particular for the more prevalent diseases currently affecting Australians.

“From omelettes and poached eggs for breakfast to fritters and egg bakes for dinner, eggs are an incredibly versatile meal option that will satisfy both coeliac sufferers and those without dietary restrictions,” he said.

“We’re proud that the entire Sunny Queen Meal Solutions product range is gluten free, providing the hospitality industry with a range of suitable meal options to add to their menus.”

Sunny Queen Meal Solutions products use real eggs, fresh from Sunny Queen farms, and are prepared within stringent health and safety guidelines to ensure they can be consumed by customers that are gluten intolerant.

Pizza Panko Crumb

Manufacturer: Newly Weds Foods

Launch date: May 2016

Ingredients: Wheat Flour, Canola Oil, Sugar, Salt, Yeast,

Shelf Life: 6 months

Packaging: 5kg / 3ply brown paper bag

Product Manager: David Keir

Country of origin: Australia

Brand Website: www.nwfap.com

Description:

Pizza Panko is a specifically developed bread crumb that acts as a texture modifier on pizza dough. It binds and absorbs oils and moisture produced in cooking reducing migration to the crust. It gives the pizza a perfect crisp texture and maintains crispness under heat lamps.

For par-baked crust applications, Pizza Panko maintains its functional benefit through freeze-thaw and other product abuses, works well in application equipment currently in industry use and provides a significant audible crispness to pizza crust.

For fresh dough applications, just work Pizza Panko into the dough ball before pressing it out and forming the shell. It can also be applied under meat and vegetable toppings to bind oil & moisture to prevent migration to the crust. This makes for a “cleaner” and more appealing delivery box.
