Ingredients manufacturer Macphie has launched an improved version of its Béchamel with Butter Sauce to meet growing demand for "cleaner" labels.
The smooth and creamy sauce, available in a one-litre pack yielding 8 x 120g servings, contains no MSG or artificial colours, flavours or preservatives, meets FSA salt-reduction requirements with less than 3g of salt per 100g and is suitable for vegetarians.
Unlike powders and pastes, the microwaveable, bain-marie and freeze-thaw stable sauce requires no preparation and its tolerance of a wide range of added ingredients means that it will not split, lump or curdle when heated. It provides chefs with an instant neutral base for a wide range of dishes such as lasagne, cauliflower cheese, peppercorn sauce, pie fillings, pasta sauces and stroganoffs.
