Go wild with Major’s new Mushroom Stock Base this Veganuary

Published: 7th December 2022

Prominent stock and sauce manufacturer, Major, has added to its range of delicious authentic stock base pastes with a new, vegan society approved, Mushroom flavour – adding an extra dimension for those creating a Veganuary specific menu.

Made using wild porcini mushrooms, the concentrated paste combines a strong aroma with a rich, deep, smooth flavour. Adding a real intensity to a dish, the mushroom stock base is designed to mix instantly, delivering a consistent taste profile and thickness to a sauce, while helping to instantly bring a dish to life. As with all the products in the Major range, the Mushroom Stock Base features a finely balanced recipe to achieve the wonderful taste of a scratch-made stock, while achieving the consistency demanded in a busy professional kitchen.

Approved by both the Vegan and Vegetarian societies, the Mushroom Stock Base is ideal for enhancing the flavour of dishes on menus throughout the year – especially those celebrating Veganuary. For added convenience, the stock is also made using a gluten-free recipe, contains no artificial additives, colours or preservatives and is suitable for those following a Halal diet.

On the new Mushroom Stock Base Paste, Paul Saunders, Marketing Manager at Major adds:

“According to a recent YouGov survey, more than one in three of the UK’s adult population is interested to find out more about vegan living, while the same percentage believe that it’s ‘an admiral thing to do’. This focus on vegan diets is something that chefs across the sector should be taking note of ahead of Veganuary 2023. Our Mushroom Stock Base Paste is a must-have kitchen store cupboard essential. Made using porcini mushrooms, the paste has a rich, intense flavour and a wonderfully dark colour to add a real depth to any dish. Approved by the vegan society, the product is also allergen-free, giving a chef peace of mind and complete flexibility in a professional kitchen.”

Designed for chefs who don’t have the time needed to make their stocks from scratch, the Major Stock Base Concentrated range does not compromise on flavour thanks to its enriched high protein content and a focus on natural flavours. Added at any stage of the cooking process, the range is optimised for sauces, soups, gravies, risottos, pies, stews and glazing. Available in a 2x1kg pack size, each 1kg tub has a yield of up to 50 litres.

What’s more, for added reassurance, all Major products are clearly labelled to show chefs they’re free from allergens at a glance, while the products come in a handy, resealable tub for greater shelf life and space optimisation in kitchen stores.
