New Products Online – 12-Aug-14
We’re always adding dozens of new things to our online store every month, so we thought we might try something new and take a closer look at some of the new products that have arrived this week.
Apple vinegars are popular as a healthy drink in Asia, where they are believed to stimulate the appetite, aid digestion, and have other good effects like detox the blood and skin. Some also believe it to help with those watching their weight, simply mixed with water and drunk regularly. If you’re not keen on drinking vinegar, it can also be used in many dishes, such as marinades, pickles and salads.
What happens when Western spaghetti collides with Eastern black soybean sauce (Chajang)? Nong Shim has created an instant version of the popular Korean dish ‘Chajangmyeon’, itself originally rooted in Chinese Zhajiangmian, and christened it ‘Chapaghetti’! Unlike many other instant noodles, the dish is not soup-based, which means the noodles are cooked and drained before stirring in the flavouring.
This is a product that should bring back memories for many. A popular snack in the Far East, and Australia, Mamee Monster Snek Mi is not a ramen product you need to cook. Simply “Crunch it, shake it, much it!”
Pandan (Screwpine) is a fragrant plant that has a characteristic sweet aroma and is used in a lot of Asian cookery, in both savoury and sweet dishes. This ready pandan flavour means no mess and hassle of having to ground and squeeze the pandan leaves yourself. We like pandan flavouring in Malaysian kuih and in light and springy pandan chiffon cake!
