AN OVENABLE cooking bag which uses herbs and spices to flavour the food during the cooking process is one of many innovative food packaging products from Sirane.
The versatile oven/BBQ cooking bag in our Flavour-it range uses a blend of kilned beech mixed with frozen herbs and spices, which are placed in a sachet and slipped below the bag’s siliconized layer – releasing a smoky flavour which enhances the food.
Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “We’ve got a great range of cooking bag solutions, and the next step for Sirane is always to find ways of making the bags even more innovative. This is a fairly simple idea, but one which transforms a cooking bag in to a bag of flavour.
“This could be a great option for retailers and a very versatile solution. It could be used over the counter with fresh food, supplied shipped into store with the flavour sachet already in the bag, or could even be used as part of a ‘smoky meal kit’ for home use.
“We’ve some interesting flavours on offer with the potential to create new and unique flavours for individual customers, so this product has lots of potential – it is very exciting for us. Smoked food is becoming increasingly popular, and this is a great way to offer a variety of different smoky flavours to your customer with minimal effort on your part.”
Sirane can offer six flavour combinations as standard: onion, mustard & spices; rosemary, juniper & spices; garlic, ginger & spices; mustard, sweet basil & spices; bay leaf, onion and spices, and juniper, pine cone and spices. However, other flavours can be developed.
There are flavours designed to complement fish, poultry, red meat, shellfish and even game.
The Sira-Cook Supreme bag for oven/BBQ is simple to use, cooks food to perfection. The wood chip sachet blended with dried herbs and spices is placed below the perforated non-stick layer, allowing the flavours to permeate through while the food is cooking.
Simon Balderson, Sirane managing director, said: “Our popular Sira-Cook Supreme cooking bag has so many potential uses – and offers many advantages to users. But using the bag as a ‘’bag of flavour’ could really help retailers offer a truly stand-out product.
“It is a foil bag capable of withstanding significant direct heat, allowing for its use on a barbecue as well as in an oven. The food will be tender, retain all the juices and flavours as well as the goodness. This product is great for meat, poultry and seafood.
“For the customer there is no mess, no smell, and no need to handle the food. The bag can be heat-sealed or folded over, and add genuine value to retail food sales.
“The bag is available in a number of sizes. It comes with a clear top panel – so users can see the food which is being cooked – and can be heat-sealed or even supplied as self-seal.”
As well as BBQ/oven bags, Sirane manufactures a wide range of other cooking bags including steam-cooking bags for oven/microwave (including a new stand-up version), nylon roasting bags and sous-vide bags and even multi-compartment bags.
