Who are we?
It all started when Eva Tornberg, Professor in Food Technology at the world-renowned University of Lund, Sweden, was completing an assignment for the starch industry. During her research, she discovered the unique qualities and intriguing benefits of potatoes.
The sustainability and versatility aspects of potato power make it a clear winner in allergen friendly plant-based food applications. Benefiting not only vegan consumers looking for more choice and improved flavour profiles but also more environmentally conscious consumers as well as those with intolerances/allergies.
The secret behind our potato based DUG Unsweetened Food Service lies in a patented mixture of potatoes and rapeseed oil. It is that which binds everything together and gives DUG its unique characteristics.
We currently supply our DUG Unsweetened plant-based milk alternative product in 1 litre Tetra Pak or bulk format, 20 litre Bag-in-Box, suitable for large industrial and food manufacturing usage to the European and UK markets.
We already have major UK ready meals producers using DUG in their ready meals as well as branded ready meals suppliers using DUG to benefit from its allergen friendly and sustainability credentials.
Along with the capability to produce larger bulk formats (up to 500 litre), we have also had manufacturers creating ice cream and baked goods from DUG, there are few limits as to what could be made.
What we do!
DUG Unsweetened Food Service is the chef’s favourite, working across both sweet and savoury dishes. It’s higher fat and sugar free profile allows it to be used just like dairy milk to make white sauces, curries, pasta sauces and a myriad of other delicious dishes.
We use the potato, which offers a subtle, more neutral taste profile and it benefits from being free of the most common allergens making it ideal for working in products that are consumed by people with intolerances or allergies.
