After developing into a key health food trend over the last few years, chia seeds have become the latest ingredient to be given the Speciality Breads artisan treatment after the launch of a Multi-seed Chia Rustic Roll and a Chia & Sultana Glazed Brioche.
The new innovative duo are available immediately to cafes, pubs, bars, hotels and restaurants, and both feature chia seeds, the on-trend ‘superfood’ and nutritional powerhouse which provides a great source of protein, fibre, anti-oxidants, omega-3 fatty acids and various other micro-nutrients.
Chia & Sultana Glazed Brioche (80g) – A new twist on the traditional fruited teacake, this versatile delight works well either toasted or untoasted and can be topped with an array of fresh fruit for an indulgent afternoon treat. The product comes frozen in boxes of 45 and costs 60p per unit.
Multi-seed Chia Rustic Roll (100g) – These rolls look fantastic with a real farmhouse rustic appearance and are absolutely packed with texture and flavour. Each roll is made with a multigrain flour as well as chia and poppy seeds, which makes for a superb flavoursome eat. The product comes frozen in boxes of 40 and each Roll has a cost price of 60p per unit.
Simon Cannell, Speciality Breads’ Managing Director, commented:
“We’ve made a real effort to not only strengthen our range this year but to add unique products that clearly set us apart from our competition in the sector. Chia seeds have become a hugely popular ingredient and with the trend for health set to continue across retail and foodservice, we’re confident they will become important lines for us moving forward.”
Speciality Breads’ new National Accounts Development Chef Neil Smith comments on how the new products can be used:
“The Multi-seed Chia Rustic Roll is an incredible product that can work with a range of quality fillings to lift sandwiches, burgers and butties to a new level. The Chia & Sultana Glazed Brioche on the other hand, is the perfect base for many a teatime treat with a difference and whether loaded with fruit, jam, cream or even something a little healthier like almond butter, it never fails to win on taste.”
