Gluten-Free coating systems from Newly Weds Foods
Newly Weds Foods, a leader in the manufacturing of food coating systems, has opened a dedicated Gluten-Free plant on the grounds of its current site in Banbury, Oxfordshire, UK, as a response to the growing demand for Gluten-Free products. The state of the art facility has capabilities to produce Gluten-Free breadcrumbs and blendings, for complete Gluten-Free food coating system solutions. The facility will be baking individual tinned loaves of Gluten-Free bread, unlike any others currently available in the market.
Gluten-Free coating systems
The new facility will be producing a range of Gluten-Free products including predust and batter components that are complementary to crumbs. This offers processors a complete coating system with the desired adhesion, texture and taste. It was important when designing these systems to maintain the preferred organoleptic attributes that consumers expect from a coated product.
