Cooking with Qualifirst Premium Modern Gastronomy Ingredients

Modern gastronomy is taking over in kitchens across the world. It is the new way to cook and experiment with a wide range of ingredients, at a molecular level. There are simple ingredients which can add a new dimension to your cooking that you’ve never experienced before. At Qualifirst, we carry the gels and powders that the influential chefs use to create masterpieces. Here are just a few of the powerful ingredients you can use to bring your cooking to the next level.

Activated Carbon

Activated carbon is often used to detox the body, but it can also be used in cooking as well. When you add activated carbon to a recipe, it can remove the impurities found in gases, vapours or fluids. This is a powerful ingredient with 1 pound of carbon- equivalent to the surface area of 6 football fields. Activated carbon can be added to beverages and foods to make them pitch black and noteworthy on Instagram and Snapchat. This is one of the latest food trends that you won’t want to miss.

Blueberry Powder

Enjoy the taste and convenience of blueberry powder, which contains all the powerful nutrients found in fresh blueberries. Add it to a smoothie, sprinkle it onto your yogurt or oatmeal and liven up your marinades and dressings with a fruity blueberry flavour.

Locust Bean Gum

This is a gelling and thickening agent that is soluble in hot or cold water. It needs to be added to other ingredients to be activated such as Kappa carrageenan, agar or xanthan gum. When used together, these ingredients provide elasticity and strength to the food created. It is also often used in ice cream to prevent ice crystal formation.

Xanthan Gum

Xanthan gum is often used when baking gluten-free products. It can be used as a thickening agent or as an emulsifier. It is often used to thicken meals prepared with a high content of alcohol and is compatible with foods with a high concentration of salt. It can also be used to suspend spices and herbs in your favorite salad dressings.
