Food manufacturer and ingredients supplier Jardox has collaborated with Cornish Sea Salt to produce two new Cornish pasty seasonings.
Ulimate Cornish Sea Salt Pasty Seasoning and Classic Cornish Sea Salt Pasty Seasoning, are based on traditional seasoning recipes but use Cornish Sea Salt instead of regular table salt. As the salt is unrefined and contains more natural trace elements than regular salt, it means 30% less salt can be used in pasties, compared to normal salt, without any loss of flavour, according to the firm.
"The depth of flavour delivered in the Cornish Sea Salt Pasty Seasoning is achieved through the use of ingredients such as caramelised onion, wild porcini mushroom powder, malt extract and premium grade black pepper," said the firm.
Darren Sutton, development director, Jardox, commented: "The pasty seasoning market is ready for a new offering that supports local producers, and we look forward to bringing a healthier, tastier product to Cornish pasty consumers."
