Crisp Sensation has launched five new variants of its crumb coating, which retains its crunch for up to three hours in regular holding units.

The home-style crumb is a mix of different crumb sizes that gives food a homemade feel. The wholegrain crumb is made for health-conscious consumers, the tempura crumb has a thin and light coating, the cornflakes coating has bigger and flatter crumbs, and lastly the southern-fried coating replicates the US style for chicken drumsticks and nuggets.

The crumb coatings are suitable for various types of food, which include meat and fish nuggets, mozzarella sticks, and sweet treats. They can be used for home snacking products, and also for restaurants, catering, convenience stores and food service providers.
