Gluten-free demand drives Maggi Gravy Mix expansion

As demand for gluten-free products continues to soar, Nestlé’s foodservice business, Nestlé Professional has launched a new addition in its rapidly expanding range of MAGGI Gluten Free Gravy Mixes.

Nestle Professional said the new MAGGI Gluten Free Supreme Gravy is “a full-bodied traditional beef-style gravy”. Nestle Professional said gluten-free gravy mixes were increasingly in demand, and were now considered an ‘essential’ stock item in professional kitchens. An estimated 2.6 million adults currently follow a wheat free diet and gluten-free now ranks as the number one allergy inquiry by customers, according to research undertaken by Nestle Consumer Services Department and the Grains and Legumes Nutrition Council in 2011.

Nestle Professional said that like other flavours in the range, MAGGI Gluten Free Supreme Gravy is “manufactured according to stringent processes and only premium quality gluten-free products have been used in its making”. Created especially to add depth of flavour to beef dishes, it can also be used on other grilled or roasted meats and vegetables.

The product has been developed to be ready in minutes. It is cooked on the stovetop, which Nestle Professional said “saves on both time and labour costs”. Nestle Professional said that the Gluten Free Supreme gravy is also “fat-free, has no added MSG and is bain-marie and cook/chill stable”.

The new Supreme flavour joins the range of MAGGI Gluten Free Gravy Mixes, which  also comprises Chicken and an Instant Rich Gravy Mix.
