A Roundup of New Food Products: All Kosher, Some Gluten-Free

Hi there!

I've received samples of new products to write about and have decided to round them up for everyone's convenience. All are kosher and most are gluten-free since I have Celiac Disease.

List of New Products:

  • Preservative-Free Chicken Sausages by "Yehiam Delicatessen"

  • "Alma" Gluten Free Wafers and Ice-Cream Cones by Gilro

  • 100% Naturally Squeezed Pineapple Juice by Primor

  • Chocolate-Vanilla Rogalach by Achva

Preservative-Free Chicken Sausages launched by "Yehiam Delicatessen" (also Gluten-Free) The meat products manufacturer "Yehiam Delicatessen", owned by Kibbutz Yehiam, is launching a new series of sausages without any preservatives at all. The new series joins Yehiam's series of 100% natural ingredients and is part of the company's vision to bring the consumer products adapted to a healthier diet and reduce the list of overall ingredients in the food. In the first stage, two new products will be launched: chicken sausages and hot sausages, both containing 12% protein.

Yehiam Preservative Free Gluten Free Sausages

This is the first time that sausages are being marketed in Israel without preservatives at all and are the only ones of their kind in Israel. After a long and complex development, which included significant investments in specialized equipment and technological know-how, and regulatory barriers, the company managed to produce quality sausages, juicy and tasty, gluten free, without sugars, without the addition of monosodium glutamate, and without preservatives at all. The new series has undergone taste tests among parents and children and the results are excellent. There is no harm to the taste of the new sausages with regard to the regular sausages marketed today.

KOSHER CERTIFICATE: Kosher under the supervision of the Chief Rabbinate.

RECOMMENDED PRICE: about 13.90 NIS for 400g.

100% Naturally Squeezed PINEAPPLE Juice by Primor "Gan Shmuel Foods", the leading juice manufacturer of the Primor brand, is launching a new 100% natural squeezed pineapple juice. The new juice, in a 1 liter bottle, joins Primor's freshly squeezed juice series, which includes 100% natural squeezed orange juice, Israel's favorite and best-selling juice in the pressed juice category, and 100% natural squeezed pomegranate juice, considered to be the fruit with the highest nutritional value.

Primor's 100% Naturally Squeezed Pineapple Juice

Primor, which leads the squeezed juice category in Israel with a market share of more than 55%, increases its range of juices and chilled beverages and expands to new fruit flavors. Pineapple juice extracted from premium quality pineapple is added without preservatives and added sugar. 100% natural squeezed pineapple juice has been tested in tasting tests and has received particularly high grades.

Chocolate-Vanilla Rogalach by Achva The new Rogalach (croissant-like pastries) from Achva are made from yeast dough melted with cocoa and filled with vanilla cream, and have a pretty black and white finish. The Rogalach are marketed in a tray that can be placed in the oven (without wrapping), to heat-up and serve. The house will be filled with wonderful smells of baking. The package size is 400 gram package, suitable for entertaining as a sweet dessert alongside cold or hot drinks.

Achva Chocolate-Vanilla Rogalach

The new Chocolate-Vanilla flavor is an addition to the already existing Chocolate, Cinnamon and Vanilla Chocolate Chip Rogalach that are already on the market. The previous Rogalach have been very successful, thanks to their rich taste, the convenience of heating directly in the package tray, and the pricing.

KOSHER CERTIFICATE: Kosher Parve under the supervision of Badatz Eda HaCharedit Yerushalayim.

RECOMMENDED PRICE: 7.90 NIS - 9.90 NIS for a package of 400 grams.
