Versatile marinades add passion to meat and vegetables With Frutarom Savoury Solutions’ new marinades portfolio, the BBQ season can’t come soon enough Frutarom Savoury Solutions launches its new marinades portfolio. “Caesar” is inspired by the popular salad dressing of the same name, while “Hickory” is characterized by smoky flavours blended with subtle, sweet notes. To capitalize on the trend for grilled vegetables, the company is also promoting a range of marinades suitable for vegetables. With the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in mind, marinades with a Brazilian character complete the 2016 portfolio. All products convince with their excellent taste, without added monosodium glutamate, and ease of use.
Umami taste sensations
At the heart of the “Caesar” marinade is a hard cheese note which is naturally umami-rich and provides a truly authentic and hearty taste profile. This creamy marinade is perfect for poultry, as well as for pork and fish.
Smoky notes are associated with barbecuing, and the compounds in smoke also activate the umami sensation and contribute to a meaty and full sensory experience. Frutarom’s new “Hickory” marinade capitalizes on this effect; its distinctive smoky notes give it an intense and full-bodied taste profile. Refined with slightly sweet flavours, the result is a harmonized accompaniment which goes very well with beef and pork.
A twist of flavour for greens
To make vegetables more exciting, Frutarom promotes three different marinades that make it easy to create delicious vegetarian and BBQ side dishes. “Reichenau” provides the classic combination of butter and garlic, while “Akropolis Gyros” adds a Mediterranean flavour by bundling herbs like thyme and oregano with garlic. This goes especially well with vegetables like peppers, courgettes and aubergines, as well as with feta cheese. Fine onion pieces and a pleasant paprika note form the core of “Summer”, the third marinade that elevates vegetables above the norm.
A dash of Brazilian inspiration
Inspired by typical Brazilian dishes and condiments, Frutarom has also developed a range of sophisticated marinades which bring South American flair to the table. These include “Copacabana”, which is characterized by its sweet, fresh and fruity taste with a subtle note of orange and works especially well with poultry, fish and pork. “Churrasco” – the Brazilian term for grilled meat in general – has a deep, smoky flavor refined with pink pepper that goes particularly well with beef.
In addition to marinades, Frutarom also offers BBQ seasonings that are sprinkled directly onto meat. These give products a different appearance to that achieved with marinades, and are just as flavoursome. The seasonings are available with and without salt and come in a wide range of options, including “Copacabana”, “Churrasco”, and classics such as “Weinbauer” (based on paprika, coarse black pepper and onion) and “Joelito” (based on paprika, garlic and fenugreek seed).
“Barbecuing is far more than simply preparing food outdoors – it’s a wonderful reason to meet with friends and family. Our versatile portfolio of marinades and seasonings offers taste sensations to fit every palate and every consumer. With the growing number of flexitarians and vegetarians in mind, our new vegetable marinades in particular show that we are responding to consumer demands,” explains Mirjam van Veldhuizen, Marketing Manager at Frutarom Savoury Solutions.
