Discover what’s behind our coated fries Thursday 03 December 2020
Lamb Weston’s coated fries are …oh so crispy… and have a longer holding time than regular fries. If you want to know how it works, then read on and we’ll share everything you need to know.
The innovative process of coating a Lamb Weston fry
Coating fries is one of Lamb Weston’s innovations that have revolutionised the industry. The secret to our stealthy coating is that each fry is covered with a thin layer of virtually transparent batter. The batter, made of natural potato starch, is applied to each and every fry by passing them through a curtain of batter on our production line. The process ensures that all fries are coated as uniformly and as thinly as possible!
Coated fries outperform regular fries, every single serving
Because our coated fries are covered in a very thin, practically invisible, layer of potato starch, they’re transformed into what you could call ‘super-fries’. Firstly, they benefit from a longer holding time as the batter acts as a ‘protective jacket’ that keeps them warmer for longer. Secondly, it makes the fries extra crispy so regardless of whether they’re kept under heat lights, on a hot counter, on a plate or ordered for home delivery or take-away, customer satisfaction is guaranteed!
Picking a coated fry means choosing one that will outperform all regular fries so just imagine what they could do for you and your business.
