Versatile and full of flavour, chestnut ingredients are the perfect staple for food manufacturers and food service. Brusco Food Group not only supply chestnuts to food manufacturers and food service, but also into retail.

Chestnuts are synonymous with Christmas in the UK, being used over the festive period in stuffing mixes or to flavour sides dishes. Whereas across Europe and Asia, they are used more regularly as part of a weekly diet.

What are Chestnut Ingredients Used For?

Chestnuts provide flavour and texture to stews, pasta and puddings, but they are also the ultimate ingredient for plant-based creations such as risottos and soups.

Naturally sweet in flavour, they also work perfectly in desserts, ice cream or in pureed form mixed with alcohol such as rum or kirsh.
