Health conscious and delicious go hand in hand. Verstegen Pure proves this with a product range that is free of MSG, declarable allergens and phosphates, and contains only a minimal amount of salt. Verstegen Pure fits seamlessly with the trend of health-conscious consumers. Only natural flavour enhancers are used to give products their own unique flavour. All of the products that meet this conditions are clearly identifiable by the Pure label.
Verstegen Pure is the answer to health trends, to the international need for salt reduction in products, and to the increase in food allergies and gluten intolerance. It also forms the basis for all kinds of new developments by Verstegen. Deliciously health conscious with Verstegen Pure.
NO DECLARABLE ALLERGENS
Increasing food allergies and gluten intolerance are developments that must be taken seriously. Common allergies include reactions to cow’s milk, chicken egg, fish, crustaceans and molluscs, nuts, peanuts, soy, apple and sesame seed. Therefore, the Verstegen Pure products do not contain any declarable allergens, such as:
- Glutinous grains
- Milk (Incl. lactose)
- Sesame seed
- Sulphur dioxide and sulphate
MSG (monosodium glutamate) is probably the best-known flavour enhancer on the market. Overdosage can cause an allergic reaction in people who are susceptible to this. The Verstegen Pure products are MSG-free.
With its Verstegen Pure label, Verstegen is also reducing the use of salt in its end products. This is a logical development as too much sodium can cause elevated blood pressure, potentially leading to cardiovascular disease. The products under the Pure label therefore ensure
that end products contain at least 20% less salt (provided that the recipe is followed).
