Yorkshire Company Eurostar Commodities Doubles Production of ‘Healthy’ Chapati Flour
Yorkshire-Based Fine Ingredient Supplier Doubles Production of ‘Healthy’ Chapati Flour
Sales since launch have increased by 53%
Eurostar Commodities, the leading supplier of the finest commodities and innovative ingredients, is to double production of its Spelt and Rye chapati flours.
In what the West Yorkshire company calls a massive trend toward healthy alternatives, sales of Spelt and Rye chapati flour have exceeded expectations in its launch year (12 months to March 2017).
Philip Bull, Managing Director of Eurostar commodities says: “We are delighted by the success of this product and it reflects a larger consumer trend toward ingredients which have increased health benefits. Many of these products, because of their more natural processing have enhanced flavour properties and increased absorption benefits. We are excited to continue developing new products in this area.”
Spelt and Rye chapati flour blends older grains of rye and spelt to produce a tasty chapati, high in quality and with the softness and flexibility required for producing a great result.
Produced by Eurostar’s development team, who trialled different grains and blends to create the optimum combination of rye and spelt, the product is available in two chapati flour varieties: Medium brown and Wholemeal.
“One of the oldest cultivated grains”
Rye and spelt give a rich hearty taste and retain a larger quantity of nutrients than other types of grains when milled. They’re a good source of fibre and minerals and are higher in protein than wheat flour. Because they are low GI the products are also good for diabetics.
Spelt is one of the oldest cultivated grains tracing is roots more than 6,000 years back to ancient Mesopotamia. Spelt has kept many of its original characteristics which provide an impressive nutritional profile, along with ease of digestibility and anti-inflammatory qualities. Rye is also a very good source of dietary fibre, phosphorus, magnesium, and vitamin B1.
Medium brown and Wholemeal varieties are available in 2kg and 5kg bags.
