Putting the Sparkle Back Into Inclusions: Titanium Dioxide Free Lustre Inclusions Now Available

Christmas is just around the corner, and the good news for your consumers is that at Meadow Inclusions, we have a wide range of tasty and dazzling lustre inclusions for any festive products in the plans for this year.

In this blog, we’ll be exploring why this range is ideal for truly festive foods and the exciting ways in which confectionery can be used to provide a luxurious addition to a variety of products. We will also be introducing you to our brand new range of titanium dioxide free lustre inclusions which are suitable for the UK and EU retail market.

Adding a festive sparkle

Here at Meadow Inclusions, we know that Christmas is a magical time for many, and we wanted to reflect this by creating a dazzling range of lustre inclusions that will really add a festive touch to consumers’ favourite treats.

From glistening rose gold to spectacular red, we have a variety of colours in our lustre range. We also have a brand-new range of lustre inclusions available, in time for the festive period including our red malt balls and brand new titanium dioxide free silver rice crisps and gold coated honeycomb.

Here are some tasty examples of how our inclusions can be applied.

Versatile inclusions for yuletide treats

Gingerbread people

The humble gingerbread person has a long association with Christmas time and it’s largely down to its naturally warming qualities, which inspire people to eat it over the holiday period.

The blend of spices used to make gingerbread’s distinctive and delicious flavour are also classic seasonal aromas that are unmistakeably Christmassy.

Gingerbread itself is a particularly versatile product but inclusions are what help to turn the ordinary biscuit into a stunning sweet treat.

The traditional gingerbread person’s waistcoat isn’t complete without its dazzling buttons and our Red Malt Balls or Rose Gold Biscuit Shortcake will provide a delicious and shimmering addition to a classic Christmas product.

Festive Hot Chocolate

There’s truly nothing better than a warm mug of hot chocolate on a cold winter’s day and that’s why it’s a particular favourite for many consumers during the festive season.

Meadow Inclusions’ products are also the perfect accompaniment for a range of delicious hot beverages, not just desserts! Our lustre gold wafer toppings will add a touch of Christmas sparkle to any hot chocolate and make this beloved winter drink even more special.

Inclusions that cater for all

A plant-based Christmas

Veganism in the UK is on the rise and with a wider range of vegan-friendly products available, more and more people are making the switch to a plant-based diet.

Research conducted by Ipsos Mori, in conjunction with The Vegan Society found that the number of vegans in the UK by 2019 had reached around 600,000 compared with just 150,000 back in 2014, which is a huge jump in just five years.

Here at Meadow Inclusions, we have an array of vegan suitable lustre inclusions including our eye catching rose gold sugar which makes an ideal addition for any plant-based treats.

Nut-free range

Allergen control is something we take very seriously here at Meadow and our glittering inclusions are produced at our state-of-the-art nut free production facility in North Wales.

In the UK, 1 in 50 children and 1 in 200 adults suffer from nut allergies, and Christmas is a time when families have to be particularly vigilant about what’s gone into a product.

When it comes to our inclusions, we can assure our customers that every step has been taken to ensure that our products are both safe and tasty for consumers to enjoy this Christmas.
