Nearly all standardized cheeses start from milk. When making natural cheese, the protein is separated from the milk through various cultures and enzymes and formed into cheese. That protein is called casein. Our imitation cheeses start with dried casein. But, since they are not made directly from milk, they must be labelled as imitation.Dried casein enables us to incorporate other wholesome dairy and non-dairy ingredients to improve the functionality, stability, shelf life and cost of our imitation cheeses.Imitation Cheese applications include:     Salad bar shreds     Sandwich slices     Pizza toppings Our products are Halal certified and they do not include pork gelatine.Ingredients: Water, food starch, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean oil, modified food starch, milk protein concentrate, salt, natural flavor, sodium phosphate, stabilizer (xantham, locust bean, guar gums), sorbic acid (as preservative), lactic acid, artificial color. Contains milk ingredients. American Condensed Milk https://www.legroupindustries.net/american-condensed-milk.htm https://www.legroupindustries.net/american-condensed-milk.htm Mon, 10 Jun 2019 00:00:00 +0530 Genuine evaporated milk, also known as dehydrated milk, is a shelf-stable canned milk product with about 60% of the water removed from fresh cow milk. It differs from sweetened condensed milk, which contains added sugar and differs also from evaporated filled milk, which includes vegetable oils.The product takes up half the space of its nutritional equivalent in fresh cow milk. When the liquid product is mixed with a proportionate amount of water, evaporated milk becomes the rough equivalent of fresh milk. This makes evaporated milk attractive for shipping purposes as it can have a shelf life of months or even years, depending upon the fat and sugar content. This made evaporated milk very popular before refrigeration as a safe and reliable substitute for perishable fresh milk, which could be shipped easily to locations lacking the means of safe milk production or storage. It is used in western households for desserts and baking due to its unique flavour. It is also used as a substitute for pouring cream, as an accompaniment to desserts, or as a rich substitute for milk.Evaporated Filled MilkFilled Milk is a shelf-stable canned milk product with about 60% of the water removed from a combination of milk solids and vegetable fat. Like the Evaporated milk, this is attractive for shipping purposes as it can have a shelf life of months or even years, depending upon the fat and sugar content. A very similar product to Evaporated Milk and a available at a more affordable price.   Condensed MilkCondensed filled milk differs from filled milk by including added sugar. Like evaporated and regular filled milk it is attractive for shipping purposes as it can have a shelf life of months or even years, depending upon the fat and sugar content.Branding, Packaging and PricingOur brand “American Milk” can be found throughout Africa and the Middle East.

American Rice Parboiled https://www.legroupindustries.net/american-rice-parboiled.htm https://www.legroupindustries.net/american-rice-parboiled.htm Mon, 10 Jun 2019 00:00:00 +0530 What is Parboiled RiceThe word parboiled originated in English and it is derived from the agglutination of partial + boiled, which means “partially boiled.” It is not glued or waxed rice, as many think.The parboiling process is based on the hydro-thermal treatment which paddy rice is subjected to, and it is solely executed by the action of water and heat without any chemical agent.The parboiling process is performed through three basic operations:Water-logging: paddy rice is placed in tanks with hot water for a few hours. In this process, the vitamins and minerals that are in the seed peal penetrate into the grain as it absorbs water.   Gelatinization: Main Process– Wet rice is subjected to a higher temperature under steam pressure, causing a change in the structure of the starch. At this stage, the grain is more compact and the vitamins and minerals are fixed inside.   Its advantages are: Rich in vitamins and minerals due to the parboiling process; When cooked, is always fluffy; Yields more when cooked; Requires less oil in preparation; It can be reheated several times maintaining its properties; High degree of hygiene during processing; Preserved longer.

Coconut Milk https://www.legroupindustries.net/coconut-milk.htm https://www.legroupindustries.net/coconut-milk.htm Tue, 11 Jun 2019 00:00:00 +0530 Where does it come from and how is it made The Coconut belongs to the Palm family (Arecaceae). It’s grown in abundance in Malaysia, Polynesia and southern Asia. When discovered by Spanish explorers it was named the cocos – meaning ‘grinning face’, because of the three little eyes on the base which they thought resembled a monkey.   Frequently confused for being a nut but classed as a fruit, the coconut is actually a one-seeded drupe. In Sanskrit, the coconut palm is known as kalpa vriksha – ‘tree which gives all that is necessary for living’ because nearly all parts can be used, the water, milk, flesh, sugar and oil. Even the husks and leaves are used as materials in furnishings and decoration. Palm trees produce   coconuts up to 13 times a year and although it takes a year for the coconuts to mature, a fully blossomed tree can produce between 60-180 coconuts in a single harvest.   Creamed coconut and coconut milk are made in a way surprisingly akin to their dairy counterparts. Coconut flesh (the white part) is grated and soaked in hot water. The coconut cream rises to the top and can be skimmed off. The remaining liquid is squeezed through a cheesecloth to extract a white liquid that is coconut milk. By repeating this process, the coconut milk becomes thinner. The thicker version is used for desserts and rich sauces. Thin coconut milk is used for cooking curries and soups.   Coconuts are highly nutritious and rich in fibre, vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous. Unlike cow’s milk, coconut milk is lactose free so can be used as a milk substitute by those with lactose intolerance. It is a popular choice with vegans and makes a great base for smoothies, milkshakes or as a dairy alternative in baking.

This variety is the largest, with the biggest fish recorded as to have grown to about 1,600 pounds.Standard LID without easy open Most of the bluefin harvest is exported to Japan and sold at a premium price for sashimi.   Cooking With TunaEverybody knows about the tried-and-true tuna salad, tuna melts, and tuna casserole. But there are so many other ways to cook tuna, including salad Nicoise (a composed salad of tuna, olives, green beans, potatoes, and hard-boiled eggs with a delicious anchovy dressing), seared ahi tuna steaks, and spicy tuna sushi burgers. If using raw tuna steaks, it is important that you don’t overcook—the fish tastes best when rare in the center (but of course, cook to your liking). If looking to make something out of the ordinary with canned tuna, consider deviled eggs with tuna, tuna risotto, or stuffed peppers with tuna.
