How would Brazi Bites create a Latin-inspired breakfast sandwich with gluten-free, toasted bread, grill marks and a melty, cheesy center that can be prepared in a home microwave? Well lucky for us, they reached out to get some help, and we had the pleasure of working through the challenges—one by one.
Food Product Development
CuliNEX began with a broad list of flavor ideas, helping the Brazi Bites’ team narrow down to the top four flavor ideas. Next, we tapped into an extensive ingredient vendor list to develop gluten-free bread prototypes and four delicious fillings. This keeps a conscious view of the commercialization requirements from the beginning. CuliNEX co-developed a custom foil-lined, susceptor sleeve to deliver the grill marks, crispy toast and melty cheesy center after a short zap in the microwave.
