Lamb Brand welcomes to its range new Quinoa packaging. They come in luxury designed carton boxes in four different varieties: White Quinoa, Red Quinoa, 3-Colour Quinoa and Bulgur & Quinoa Blend.

Quinoa pronounced as “keen-wah” is a tiny bead shaped seed. It comes in a rainbow of colours and can be prepared like whole grains such as rice or barley. This protein-packed seed contains every amino acid, and is particularly rich in lysine, which promotes healthy tissue growth throughout the body.

Quinoa is also a good source of iron, magnesium, vitamin E, potassium, and fibre. The taste and texture of quinoa is a bit like brown rice crossed with oatmeal. It’s fluffy, creamy, crunchy and somewhat nutty, all rolled into one. Quinoa makes great breakfasts, lunches, brunches, dinners or desserts. The great thing is, it can be prepared in so many different ways, making it extremely versatile.

Lamb Brand Quinoa comes in three main varieties: white, red and black.

White Quinoa is the commonly used and is more of a tan colour rather than white. White quinoa has the most delicate taste and lightest texture and it cooks up a bit fluffier than other types of quinoa. Because of its fluffy texture and milder flavor, white quinoa works well as a substitute for rice in many dishes.

Red Quinoa has a richer taste, crunchier texture and somewhat nuttier in flavour when compared to white quinoa. It is commonly used for cold salads, as it holds its shape better during cooking.

Black Quinoa has more of an earthy flavour and is also slightly sweeter than white quinoa.

3 – Colour Quinoa is so called since it comes in all three colours: white, red and black. It is also called Rainbow Quinoa or Quinoa Blend.

Bulgur and Quinoa Blend is a hearty and delicious culinary mix, excellent to serve as a side dish, or in soups and salads. Lamb Brand has combined this protein packed seed with durum wheat.

Dear Clients and members of the Public

We would like to draw the attention on a delicate matter that has hit the news and social media today. Reference is being made for the public announcement made by the DOI earlier today on Lamb Brand Sultanas.

Lamb Brand is a renowned brand by C. Cini Mfg. Ltd and thanks for its ISO & HACCP implementation and Certification, it has the ability to trace all products; where they have been sold and in what quantity. Lamb Brand continuously tries to acquire the best field produce from around the world and constantly improves the sourcing system.

The General Public needs to be aware that all the products in question have been collected from all retail outlets, however some products might have already reached the consumer. Should you have in possession the Lamb Brand Sultana in picture with the Expiry date 17/11/2017 you are kindly requested to return it to the place of purchase for an exchange or refund.

Having said and done all this we would like to explain this issue in more detail and calm any consumers that might have already consumed the mentioned product.

- Ochratoxin A is a type of fungus found in raw food, levels of Ochratoxin A can increase over time if food is not stored well. High temperatures and humid conditions make way for this fungi to multiply and level to rise. The Ochratoxin A level can vary within the same batch depending on it’s storage conditions.

- The batch of Lamb Brand Sultana in question has been tested and passed all relevant certification before being imported in Malta and on arrival the local authorities had released it into the local market according to EU standards, but as explained above the Ochratoxin A level has increased by time due to high temperatures and improper storage conditions.

How does Ochratoxin A effect human health?

Ochratoxin A is a potent nephrotoxin and is reported to cause acute and chronic effects in the kidneys of all mammalian species tested. The sensitivity of different species varies, but a level of 200 μg/kg (micrograms/kg) in feed over three months is sufficient to cause acute damage to the kidneys tested on pigs and rats.

 

So far there are NO documented cases of acute Ochratoxin A toxicity in humans till today.

For more information about Ochratoxin one can access the site below

Have you ever wondered that Lamb Brand also have Vanilla Powder, Bicarbonate of Soda and Cream of Tartar as part of their range or products?

Lamb Brand Vanilla Powder and Lamb Brand Cream of Tartar are are quite new on the market while we gave a revamp to Lamb Brand Bicarbonate of Soda.

We are giving you a brief overview and some tips, of how these ingredients can be useful in your kitchen!


Vanilla Powder

Beautifully fragrant powder made from the whole vanilla pod. Vanilla powder adds more flavour to your baked goods than the ordinary vanilla extract. It can be sprinkled on fresh fruit or toast, and added to coffee or oatmeal. When cooking or baking, vanilla powder easily mixes with liquids without lumping and adds flavour to breads, cakes, cookies, frostings, and meringues, as well as ice cream and custards.

Vanilla powder offers unique and useful properties that home cooks will appreciate. There is no sugar or alcohol and it dissolves quickly in hot or cold liquids.

 

Cream of Tartar

Cream of tartar is mostly used for baking and has nothing to do with Tartar Sauce (the mayonnaise based sauce that is served alongside fish). Cream of tartar is a white odourless powder which is formed from the sediment left over in barrels after the wine making process.

Cream of tartar is best known for helping stabilize and give more volume to beaten egg whites and whipped cream. A pinch of cream of tartar added while the whites are being whipped will strengthen the matrix of bubbles and help prevent the egg foam from collapsing too quickly. Cream of tartar is also used to inhibit crystallisation in the production of sugar candy. The tartar also helps to increase the volume of the egg foam and keeps them bright and white.

It can also be used to make simple baking powder by using 1 part bicarbonate of soda to 2 parts cream of tartar.

 

Bicarbonate of Soda

Bicarbonate of Soda, also know as Baking Soda, is a fine white powder, which is primarily used in baking. It is used to raise soda breads and full-flavoured cakes such as gingerbread, fruit cake, chocolate cake and carrot cake.

Bicarbonate of soda also helps to neutralise the acid in tomato sauces leaving your favourite sauce not only tasty, but easy on the stomach. Bicarbonate of Soda also acts as a gentle cleanser to wash pesticides off your fruit and vegetables. It is a natural deodorising chemical to remove bad odours from the environment, such as refrigerators and other places in you home. Adding extra bicarbonate of soda can result to strong unpleasant flavours and peaked or collapsed cakes.

Remember that Home Cooking Makes a Better Christmas! 

Lamb Brand is happy to launch the new designed bottles for the Herbs, Spices, Seasoning and Peppers. All these are vital ingredients in many dishes and add flavour, aroma, colour, texture and even nutrients. Herbs, Spices, Seasoning and Peppers were used long ago and are common in most foods around the world today.

Each section is kept colour coded so one can easily identify the difference between the four. Green for Herbs, orange for Spices, purple for Seasonings and black for Peppers.

Lamb Brand Herbs come from the leafy and green part of the plant. There are numerous different herbs, each one having its own unique aroma and taste. Herbs can be found in many places around the world and are probably the best gifts of nature.

Lamb Brand Spices are parts of the plants other than the leafy bit, they are obtained from seeds, fruits, roots, barks, bulbs or stems. Spices are not necessarily as fresh as some herbs can be, but they are usually stronger smelling and quite often stronger tasting.

Lamb Brand Seasonings are a blend of natural herbs and spices that give your favourite dish a twist. These special selected mixes will surely improve the flavour of your food.

Lamb Brand Peppers, pepper is one of the world’s most popular spices, since a pinch is added to almost every type of recipe imaginable. Pepper comes from the pepper plant, a smooth woody vine that grows in hot and humid tropical climates. They begin to bear small white clustered flowers that develop into peppercorns after 3 or 4 years.

Click on the below titles to explore the whole range Lamb Brand has to offer.

It’s Easter time and Lamb Brand is happy to announce two competitions for our clients and Facebook followers that we would like you to take part in!

Also be on the look out for our newsletter which you should receive in your letterbox. We have just launched the 8th issue of “toghma BNINA”, a whole new facelift was given to this newsletter which is now bigger and better! 

Lamb Brand is happy to announce the launch of their new range of Rice which is available in 5 different varieties: Long Grain, Basmati, Parboiled, Arborio and Wholegrain. Each 500g packet comes packed in a carton box, designed exclusively for Lamb Brand.

Long Grain Rice and Parboiled Rice are also available in family packs of 1kg bags. Each type of rice has a different shape, characteristic, and flavour. Long grain rice is about four or five times as long as it is wide and makes a perfect accompaniment to any dish. Long grain rice is long and slender. The grains stay separate and fluffy after cooking, so this is the best choice if you want to serve rice as a side dish, or as a bed for sauces. With its perfect whiteness and fluffiness the Lamb Brand Long Grain Rice is ideal for both Asian and Mediterranean meals being it entrées, salads, sides or desserts.

The name Basmati means ‘Fragrant’ due to the highly scented aroma released during cooking. The light and fluffy grains of basmati rice are much longer, having a subtle flavour and naturally white colour. Lamb Brand Basmati Rice perfectly complements spicy Asian dishes, but also adds flavour to many other cuisines.

Parboiled rice has been partially boiled in the husk. Thanks to this special process apart that reduces cooking time, it stores nutrients, including thiamine and makes white parboiled rice up to 80% nutritionally similar to wholegrain rice. Lamb Brand Parboiled Rice is an all-purpose type of rice, which is good enough for your everyday cooking. High in nutritional values, firm and non-sticky, parboiled rice is ideal for salads and baking.

Short, fat and slightly oval-shaped, Arborio rice has a pearly white exterior which surely makes a tasty and lovely creamy risotto thanks to its starchy characteristic. It gives personality to all recipes, even the most simple. Use Lamb Brand Arborio Rice for sushi, puddings or as a substitute for Spanish Paella.

Wholegrain rice also known as brown rice is naturally a good source of fibre and low in saturated fat and salt, supporting a well-balanced diet. Lamb Brand Wholegrain Rice is suitable for any type of recipe. Prepare a cold rice salad or use it as a side to a tasty creamy meat or vegetarian curry.

Summer is round the corner, but we can already feel the nice warm scent of it! 

Lamb Brand has launched two new products on the market – Lamb Brand Polenta and Lamb Brand Medium Bulgur Wheat.  One may find plenty of recipes which are easy to follow on our website and can simply be prepared for the hot summer period.

 

What is Bulgur Wheat?

Bulgur is a quick-cooking form of whole wheat that has been cleaned, parboiled and dried into ground particles and later sifted into distinct sizes. Bulgur is rich in fibre, B-vitamins, iron, phosphorus and manganese.  No chemicals or additives are used when processing bulgur wheat, making it a natural whole grain food.

Lamb Brand Bulgur Wheat is a versatile wheat product with a pleasant nutty flavour. Use it in pilafs, soups, salads, baked goods, stuffing or casseroles. In recipes, it is similar to rice or couscous but with a higher nutritional value. 

Bulgur is a good substitute for meat and it is ideal for vegetarians and vegans. Use it as a side dish or for your main meal.

 

What is polenta?

Polenta is made from ground cornmeal (maize), a dish that originated in northern Italy. Lamb Brand Polenta is an instant version of the original recipe, this means that it has been partially cooked before grinding so that it only takes you 5 minutes to cook. Polenta has a smooth and creamy texture and can be consumed either plain or enriched with a varied selection of ingredients. Add a simple knob of butter, grated cheese, porcini mushrooms, beans or meat. Polenta can be served as cooked, grilled or fried after it has set.

Used in both savoury and sweet recipes polenta can be added to all types of food and served either hot or cold. Use Polenta as a main ingredient in pies or as a substitute for potatoes, have it grilled with some cheese as a snack or as a side during breakfast, lunch or dinner!

 

We encourage you to use these products and be part of our Lamb Brand Facebook competition!  All you have to do is private message us with a photo of your homemade dish using polenta or bulgur wheat together with the recipe to win great gifts!
