Vitality is a product range from Irish food manufacturer Allegro, offering products including Oats, Pancakes and Bars, which are all high protein free of wheat and gluten, and contain no added sugar. Allegro believes that healthy food makes for happy lives, and offer quick, easy and extremely nutritious meals for those who enjoy an active lifestyle. The range is currently available in Ireland and will be launched into the UK in 2017.
South African food producer Lefka O’life Africa has worked together with Irish food manufacturer Allegro to introduce the ingredient solution in their healthy product range Vitality.
”We pride ourselves in our ability to keep up with the global foods trends, not just flavour trends and functional ingredients but also nutritional trends and developments. An area that we have focused on for some time is that of sugar reduction and the production of low sugar and sugar free foods”, said Ian Murgatroyd, Managing Director at Lefka O’Life Africa.
The ingredient solution used for sugar reduction in Vitality comes from Bayn Europe, a global specialist in sugar reduction. The order came through Bayn Europe’s global partnership with Barentz, a leading supplier and distributor of innovative and standard ingredients for the food industry.
”Earlier this year Lefka O’Life developed a food range for Irish company Allegro under the brand ‘Vitality – Food for Active Living’. The brief was to produce an oat based cereal that was high in protein, gluten free, high in fibre but most importantly, with no added sugar. The BAYN products have been used extensively in this development and for further product development within the Vitality brand such as sugar free high protein bars, a low sugar pancake mix and more recently a sugar free peanut butter”, said Ian Murgatroyd, Managing Director at Lefka O’Life Africa.
“We are happy to have been able to support Lefka O’Life Africa in their development and launch of Vitality in Ireland and the UK. We are positive towards our cooperation with Barentz, and are happy to now be working together with a food producer and developer in South Africa”, said Lucy Dahlgren, Managing Director at Bayn Europe AB.
