New Premium Freeze Dried Herbs

Schwartz for Chef has added Coriander Leaf to its Premium Freeze Dried Herbs, bringing the total in the range to six. The Premium collection offers a range of specially selected herbs that have been freeze dried for a superior strength of flavour and a bright appearance, offering the closest alternative to fresh herbs. And because only the highest quality herbs are used, only a small amount is required to deliver maximum flavour.

The Premium range gives improved visual appearance, with better shape and texture than regular dried herbs, and when added to liquids such as soups, sauces and even plain water, they rehydrate instantly. And unlike fresh herbs, they won’t start to deteriorate on the day of delivery!

James Millward, Commercial Director, McCormick (UK) Ltd; “We recognise that there will always be a place in the kitchen for fresh herbs but we want to demonstrate that our high quality Freeze Dried Herbs can bring added merits to a recipe in terms of value, flavour and practicality. They have the visual appearance of fresh herbs when reconstituted and because they are freeze dried, they hold their colour, flavour and texture as if fresh.”

Schwartz for Chef herbs and spices are heat treated for microbiological safety making them safe to use, even without cooking. By using the resource of its parent company, McCormick, Schwartz for Chef only supplies 100% pure and authentic products.

Spices come from all over the world and like all agricultural raw materials they must be cleaned in order to avoid any potential risk of natural contamination. In Europe, McCormick (brand owner of Schwartz for Chef) has developed its own steam sterilisation process; a natural technique, perfectly adapted to herbs and spices. The raw materials are cleaned of potential foreign materials and sorted. Steam sterilisation is the last step before packaging, making Schwartz for Chef herbs and spices safe to use, even without cooking.
