Paramount 21, the premium frozen seafood and vegetarian specialist, has launched a range of gluten-free products developed specifically for the foodservice market including tastefully blended fishcakes and a delicious jumbo cod fish finger.
The demand for gluten-free products has seen significant growth in the UK over the last few years and looks very much set to continue. Indeed, Coeliac UK has reported that the catering industry is missing out on an estimated £100 million a year by not catering for people with coeliac disease and their friends and family.
In addition to being sought after by diagnosed coeliacs, trends are showing that gluten-free products are increasingly being chosen by consumers for other reasons such as suspected gluten intolerance and are attracted by the health benefits that are reportedly associated with a gluten-free diet.
After 27 years in the seafood industry, Paramount has the experience and confidence to create and produce innovative products that supply trending consumer demand. The team at Paramount are constantly evolving their seafood, vegetarian and now their gluten-free offering and MD, Ali Hannaford, and her team aim to be ‘best in class’ across the board as well as sourcing locally wherever possible.
Sue Cullum, Sales & Marketing Director of Paramount 21 is confident that seafood lovers will be unable to tell the difference from the traditional recipes, which use a wheat breadcrumb. Sue said: “Consumers following a gluten-free diet have previously missed out on value-added seafood products whilst eating out. We are really excited to have developed gluten-free recipes and innovative crumb coatings so everyone can enjoy pub classics such as fish fingers and premium fishcakes.”
The Paramount 21 Gluten-Free Frozen Seafood Range The NPD Team carefully selected their best selling recipes using popular species to create the range of four fishcakes and a Jumbo fish finger.
