AAK Foodservice has launched a new range of Lion barbecue sauces, designed to cater to the growing popularity of pulled meats.
The collection includes four new barbecue sauces, each inspired by a different American state and developed to accompany a specific type of slow-cooked meat, including pulled pork, shredded chicken, beef brisket and salted beef.
Each sauce features a distinctive flavour profile and colour to enhance the taste and appearance of its meat partner. The sauces also work equally well with other barbecue meat dishes including chicken wings, ribs and burgers, AAK Foodservice said.
Packed in 1 litre squeezable bottles, they include a “rich and smoky” Missouri barbecue sauce for pulled pork, Tennessee sweet bourbon sauce for brisket, South Carolina sweet hot mustard sauce for salted beef, and Alabama spicy pepper barbecue sauce to pair with shredded chicken.
Lion brand ambassador Ben Bartlett said: “Barbecue and smoky, slow-cooking flavours have never been more popular. These barbecue sauces are designed to provide caterers with an easy way to capitalise on an ever-growing trend.
“It isn’t always practical or cost-effective for caterers to cook ‘low and slow’, roasting meats for hours on end. These specialist BBQ sauces are also fantastic for bringing delicious, authentic slow-cooking flavours to meat dishes in a fraction of the time.”
Lion sauces are suitable for vegetarians, non-GM and soya-free. All Lion sauces are free from artificial colours, preservatives and sweeteners, and the vast majority of sauces and condiments are also gluten-free, the brand pointed out.
