Bringing a taste of the Far East to the West

RAPS launches five authentically exotic liquid seasonings

 

With its new liquid seasonings, which provide an ideal basis for creative convenience dishes, spice expert RAPS brings a taste of the Far East to professional kitchens. The condiments impress with authentic spices from Japanese and Korean cuisine, and fresh, intense flavour profiles. They spice up fish, meat, vegetable and noodle soup dishes, as well as stews – without requiring additional flavoring – and the practical squeeze bottle allows for precise dosing. The ingredients rely on the RAPS maxim of maximum cleanness.

Traditional Asian food stalls have been an integral part of the food culture in Germany for quite a while now. Dishes such as ramen, the typical Japanese noodle soup, are particularly trendy among younger generations. That’s why the Culinary Excellence team at RAPS has developed a new product range that provides a liquid basis for exciting new flavour combinations. Prepared with authentically exotic ingredients of the highest quality, the liquid seasonings are also suitable for the European interpretation of Far Eastern classics. Wholesome meals with vegetables, fish or meat as the centerpiece can be created just as easily as sandwiches or salads.

The unique Japanese ramen taste is provided by the seasonings “Chicken Ramen” and “Beef Ramen”, refined with soy sauce, ginger and fish sauce. Three of the five new products are vegan and can be labelled accordingly: The flavour of “Teri Tori” is a fusion between teriyaki and yakitori spices, and is popular in Japan for seasoning meat, vegetable and fish dishes. “Bulgogi” is a Korean cuisine classic also known as “meat of fire”. The slightly fiery flavour is based on apple juice concentrate, miso paste and chilli. The seasoning “Shichimi Togarashi” conjures up a fruity-sweet orange taste combined with ginger and chilli flavours.

The practical 1.2 kilograms squeeze bottles enable ideal dosing and ultimate convenience. The liquid seasonings have a long shelf life and do not need to be refrigerated, making them easy to store. They were developed for professional use in restaurants, canteens, food trucks and hot buffets, but are also available from retailers for home use. A large selection of creative recipe ideas is available on the RAPS recipe platform myRAzept.
