New Orleans Prototypes
When in New Orleans, it is not uncommon for the Food Expo to feature a variety of prototypes such as gumbo, crawfish etouffee, red beans and rice jambalaya, bananas foster, and a variety of other dishes smothered in hot sauces. And this year is probably no exception. Here are some New Orleans-focused prototypes to be on the lookout for:
- ADM/Matsutani American LLC (booths 6539, 6439) will be serving up Whole Wheat Beignets. This sweet pastry treat highlights Kansas Diamond white whole-wheat flour, vegetable shortening, frying oil, and Sweet N’ Neat Fibercal.
- Edlong Dairy Flavors (booth 6429) will feature a Bourbon Street Bananas Foster Smoothie. Made with a dairy flavor line designed to address a range of challenges—from masking off notes present in soy, whole wheat, and other fortified foods to enhancing creamy mouthfeel in low-fat and non-dairy applications.
- Bell Flavors (booth 7829) will be demonstrating how Creole cuisine can be combined with the flavors of other world cultures. Attendees will be able to sample a Korean gumbo with some exotic spice flavors.
