Why rice pudding?
Rice pudding has been around for a long time in many parts of the world, especially in Europe. It is said that even King Louis IX, had a rice pudding breakfast in 1248 in Sens, France, on his way to the crusade (source: Wikipedia). However, vanilla was still unknown then. Various recipes inspired by rice pudding have been created over time. The product usually marketed as rice pudding, containing eggs, is now the most famous derivative in America. Nutrinor was inspired by the traditional European recipe to introduce local people to the unparalleled taste of rice pudding, naturally enhanced by its famous Nordic milk.
A meal that brings people together
Milk and rice are consumed just about anywhere in the world, so it is no surprise that foods based on milk and rice are also found all around the globe: Europe, Latin America, Maghreb, Scandinavian countries, India and even in the Philippines. Even though there exist variations based on local spices or cooking method, rice pudding is nonetheless always based on milk, rice and a sweet ingredient. In keeping with this traditional recipe, Nutrinor’s rice pudding distinguishes itself by the unique nature of its milk and, of course, a rigorous manufacturing process conferring it the taste of a homemade product.
Locally produced Nordic milk in perfectly unique conditions
Nutrinor owns and operates the most northerly dairy in the province of Quebec. Its milk comes from cows whose feed is composed of high quality fodder and grains, and whose growth is specifically adapted to the climate and the regions’ very particular soil. That’s why Nutrinor calls its milk “Nordic”.
A first in Canada—a novelty that stands out
Nutrinor has been producing and marketing dairy products for over 50 years. Driven by the desire to innovate, Nutrinor is launching in 2018 a new line of rice pudding products, a food that is already available in Canada, but mainly imported from the USA. Made with 100% Canadian milk and a short list of simple ingredients, without allergens or preservatives, Nutrinor rice pudding has an incomparable taste and a silky texture that literally melts in the mouth. A healthy and gourmet treat all at once!
