Available in Sainsbury from February 2010 are Antony Worrall Thompson’s new Yeast Free Organic Stock Cubes for people who need to exclude yeast (and gluten) from their diet, and those who prefer to opt for a ‘free from’ day or two as part of their commitment to enjoying a healthier lifestyle.
At this time of year, no kitchen store cupboard should be without a pack of stock cubes as a staple convenience ingredient that is ready to help create warming casseroles, risottos, and comforting seasonal soups to keep winter chills at bay.
AWT Yeast Free Organic Free Range Chicken Stock Cubes are packed full of flavour and contain organic free range chicken combined with organically grown eastern spices including flavoursome turmeric. They are both yeast and gluten free.
AWT Yeast Free Organic Vegetable Stock Cubes contain a traditional blend of onions, celery, leeks and carrots to create this delicious vegetable stock that is beautifully flavoured with organically grown lovage, parsley, nutmeg, turmeric, garlic and pepper. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans the stock cubes are yeast and gluten free.
Antony says: “Although I haven’t been diagnosed with a food allergy or intolerance, I take a conscious decision to make free from meals at home to incorporate into our family’s diet. I have found that I feel healthier if I limit my intake of foods derived from wheat and that contain yeast. I tend not to drink beer these days and you won’t find me enjoying birthday cake either but a delicious free from orange and almond alternative, or a Pavlova instead!”
“Free from products have come a long way since the early days and free from doesn’t have to mean an inferior taste. We’ve worked hard to successfully remove the yeast whilst leaving behind a rich stock that doesn’t compromise on taste. I hope you will be pleasantly surprised by their full flavour and that they will become a firm staple in store cupboards, especially food allergy and intolerance sufferers who want convenience ingredients that take care of their dietary requirements.”
For a rich stock, dissolve one cube in 500mls of boiling water and stir well.
