Our search for super crispy fries and wedges

A wise old person once said: “Keep your friends close, and keep your fries even closer.” Or something along those lines. Who are we to disagree? And don’t forget about artisanal potato wedges. Whether they’re served in a quick-service restaurant, a festival booth or a high-end establishment: fries and wedges are always synonymous with pure indulgence. Both are peak potato perfection: a golden colour, soft on the inside and ultra-crispy on the outside.

Unfortunately, that beloved crunch fades fast. Leave your fries or wedges alone for too long, and punishment comes quickly: a mushy mess. Here at Solina, we wanted to find a way to extend the lifetime of that much-craved crispiness. How could we ensure the ultimate crunch, even long after the frying process?

Good, batter, best

Preventing quality loss in fries and wedges starts in the pre-frying phase. How? By applying one of our liquid batter systems between the blanching and frying processes. Solina’s liquid batter systems help you obtain all the next-level product attributes you’re looking for: from texture and flavour to colour and appearance. You can easily apply the batter systems in different dilutions you want, depending on your preferred level of crunch. The final product guarantees a prolonged crispy experience until the very last glorious bite. Whether the end consumer uses a traditional deep fat fryer, an air fryer, or an oven: they’ll always enjoy the perfect crunch.

SEASONINGS AND SAUCES

Why not further elevate your crispy fries and wedges? While they’re delicious on their own, they’re even better when paired with a mouthwatering sauce, or tossed in an enticing mix of herbs and spices. Our solutions for sauces and seasonings are here to help. They’re based on consumer insights, market trends and the latest cutting-(w)edge food technology – and conveniently available in different packaging formats.
