PURE OATY // NEW PRODUCT

Thank you to Rawlingson Lane for the following content

Family owned, Family run, British manufacturer –
Gluten Free oat milk for ethical consumers

With many consumers now actively investigating not only how products are made, but increasingly, who owns the brand themselves, the focus on family owned, family run companies has never been greater. Glebe Farm Foods has been in the Rayner family for over 50 years, and is currently run by sister and brother Rebecca and Phil. This year, heavy investment by the
family itself has seen the creation of a purpose-built gluten free oat milk plant, located on the same farm at which the oats themselves are grown. This plant has been the catalyst for the launch of PureOaty, the only oat drink on the market that is produced using exclusively British gluten free oats.

Lovingly created in the UK using just 4 natural ingredients: British
gluten free oats, water, sunflower oil and salt, PureOaty contains no
added sugars, sweeteners or preservatives and never, ever comes from
concentrate (unlike many similar products).

Low in sugar and calories, PureOaty is an excellent milk alternative in
delicious barista style coffees, whilst being perfect on cereals, or in
smoothies. In addition, it excels as the base for many sauces, soups and
desserts or as a key ingredient in baking, from gluten free brownies to delicious cakes and bakes.

When steamed through a domestic coffee machine, PureOaty creates a luxurious, velvety barista style foam which is ideal for a morning cappuccino, mid-afternoon latte or an indulgent hot chocolate.

Following the huge demand for plant-based milks in 2020, PureOaty provides a fantastic gluten and dairy-free option for those who are integrating free-from products into their daily lifestyle in 2020.

Suitable for both vegetarians and vegans alike, PureOaty also offers an excellent plant-based option for consumers with a number of dietary requirements including lactose intolerance, coeliac disease and nut allergies.

The Rayner family is delighted with the initial launch of this gluten free oat milk option and are already receiving a great response from consumers following a dairy free diet, as well as those who are choosing it as a lifestyle option.

PureOaty is currently stocked in Holland & Barrett, Central England Co-Op’s and Amazon an retails for around £1.99.

GIN & TONIC LOAF // RECIPE

Thank you to Baking with Ames (@bakingwithames) for the following content

Dairy free gin and tonic loaf 

What you’ll need: 
For the loaf For the syrup
200g dairy free butter 125g caster sugar 
200g caster sugar 125ml tonic water
4 eggs, beaten 2 tbsp gin
200g self-raising flour Icing sugar
½ tsp baking powder
The zest of 1 lime
100ml (3 fl oz) gin

How to make: 
– Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan) mark 4. Line base and sides of a 900g  (2lb) loaf tin with baking parchment, or insert a premade loaf tin case. In a large bowl beat butter and sugar until pale in colour and fluffy. 
– In a separate bowl / mug beat the eggs together, and gradually add to the butter and sugar mix. 
– Now, fold in the flour, baking powder and lime zest. Make sure everything is fully mixed in and add the gin. Spoon into your loaf tin and bake for around 45 minutes – you may need longer so always check with a skewer to check it’s cooked through. Your skewer should come out clean when its cooked. 
– While your loaf is cooking start making the sugar syrup. Heat the caster sugar and tonic water in a small pan, until the sugar dissolves. Once dissolved, boil the syrup for 2 minutes. 
– Spoon 3tbsp of the syrup into a small bowl and mix in 2tbsp of the gin – this will be used to soak your cake. Remove the pan of remaining syrup off the heat and let it cool. 
– When your cake is cooked, poke holes into the top with a skewer and drizzle the syrup/gin mixture. Once you’ve done this, take the cake out of the loaf tin and allow to cool on a wire rack. 
– Meanwhile, when the sugar syrup has cooled mix in some icing sugar until you have a glossy white mixture perfect for drizzling over the top of your cooled loaf. 
– When the loaf is cool drizzle your icing and leave to set before serving.
