Knorr launches Concentrated Demi-Glace for chefs
Knorr has launched Concentrated Demi-Glace as part of its Knorr Professional range. Created by chefs for chefs, the new product - uniquely containing 25% concentrated beef stock along with carefully chosen vegetables, herbs and starches that, with a natural meaty taste - is the perfect complement for scratch flavours, states the company.

“Ireland loves brown-based sauces that, when made correctly, stir the senses with thick, rich and authentic tastes of delicious roasted meat,” stated Derry Clarke, Chef Proprietor of Michelin-starred restaurant l’Ecrivain, who launched the new product from Unileverfoodsolutions.
“Not all chefs have time to make their own sauce from scratch however and gravy granules and powder – as a flavour booster – often fall short of the taste that does a great sauce justice.
“Knorr Professional Concentrated Demi-Glace is different,” he continued, “It’s the perfect blend of concentrated beef stock, vegetables and herbs that’s an ideal complement to your scratch base and allows you to easily achieve the absolute consistency required.”
Knorr Professional Concentrated Demi-Glace was developed following extensive research with Irish chefs who wanted to create great-tasting brown-based sauces packed full of flavour but struggled with time pressures. Having listened to their feedback, Knorr set about creating a product that would fit perfectly in an everyday, hardworking kitchen environment without compromising on quality or, more importantly, taste.
After trials and tests the results are in. Knorr Professional Concentrated Demi-Glace’s glace-like texture dissolves quickly and smoothly to deliver a full, rich and natural meaty taste every time, states the company. It’s also gluten-free which is becoming more and more important for Irish chefs and operators to meet the changing needs of guests. Better still, it’s easy to use – just add directly to water or straight into a gravy base.
Knorr Professional Concentrated Demi-Glace is a vast improvement on dry products, claims the company, adding that it’s an everyday, authentic beef concentrate that brings consistency, added colour and flavour to all brown sauces and gravy.
