McKenzie’s Launches New Speciality Flours

Posted by AFN Staff Writers on 4th April 2019

Two New Exciting Flavours Added to Range

Launching Oat Flour and Tigernut Flour, McKenzie’s is leading the way in the alternative flour space. The two new flavours hit the shelves at Woolworths Supermarkets at the end of February and will accompany seven other alternative flours in the range.

Despite the name, Tigernut Flour is made from a small root vegetable – not a nut! It boasts high levels of resistant starch and is a great nut-free substitute to almond meal. Tigernut Flour is gluten free, paleo, has a granular texture and is packed full of fibre. It can be used in a range of dishes including cakes, donuts, bread and muffins.

The new Oat Flour is made from 100 per cent oats and is a delicious alternative to wheat flour. It adds earthy, toasted flavours to baking, whilst boosting protein and fibre intake too. Oat Flour is perfect to use when making pancakes, slices, biscuits and muffins. McKenzie’s Marketing Manager, Bianca Piscopo, said the Australian food manufacturer has had an overwhelming response to their existing specialty flour range and is delighted to expand their offering in this growing health space.

“We’ve seen the growing trend of alternative flours and think people will fall in love with our new flavours, especially our Tigernut Flour as it’s such a unique and versatile product. We hope our customers continue to enjoy experimenting with our speciality flours and baking delicious and healthy creations,” she said.

McKenzie’s full alternative flour range includes: Coconut Flour, Quinoa Flour, Lentil Flour, Chick Pea Flour, Buckwheat Flour, Wholemeal Spelt Flour, Tapioca Flour, Oat Flour and Tigernut Flour.

Their products are available at Coles, Woolworths and independent supermarkets. For further information, delicious recipes and a downloadable Flour Power eBooklet, visit their website.
