Brakes continues to drive the market in plant-based ingredients with the addition of two popular lines from the Oumph! brand – Pulled Oumph! and Oumph! The Chunk.
Oumph!, made from soya beans, is already proving popular with vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians, and meat-eaters around the country. Originating from Sweden, it is a multi-award winner and claimed the title of best product for foodservice/catering in the World Food Innovation Awards, while Oumph! The Chunk was awarded Gold in the Food For Foodservice category at the 2018 Free From Eating Out Awards.
Pulled Oumph! is soya chunks in a delicious barbecue sauce that can be fried from frozen and served as a filling for tacos, a topping for burgers, in a sandwich or atop a pizza. Oumph! The Chunk is an unseasoned version, ready for chefs to add their own herbs, spices and creativity. Extremely versatile, try Oumph! The Chunk in curries, lasagna, Asian-inspired dishes or even as a fish substitute for fish and chips with a twist. Simply pan fry in oil for five or six minutes from frozen, or three to four minutes once thawed. Oumph! is also high in protein and fibre and a source of both iron and folic acid.
Oumph! provides a great solution for caterers as it is both easy to use and versatile, providing a unique structure and texture that replicates meat and which really lends itself to a multitude of dishes. Coupled with that, it is easy to cook from frozen and appeals to meat eaters as well as vegetarians and vegans so it is an ideal all-rounder.
Brakes is supplying Pulled Oumph! and Oumph! The Chunk frozen in 1 x 1kg packs. For more information visit www.brake.co.uk or call 0345 606 9090.
