Let’s face it a great plate of fish and chips is hard to beat. No wonder it’s a year round favorite – who can resist a piece of tender fish, wrapped in a super crispy coating that taste of heaven, better know as beer batter. That’s right beer batter! Beer makes a better base for batter because it simultaneously adds three ingredients—carbon dioxide, foaming agents and alcohol. Each of these ingredients contributes a different aspect of physics and chemistry resulting in a light and crispy crust. Scientific American has an excellent article detailing the scientific data of exactly why beer batter is so delicious.
Not all batter mixes are equal in performance, the base for your batter is critical in achieving an extra crispy texture and having a mix that’s both versatile and easy to use. If performance and versatility are important to you, start with an Authentic Tempura batter mix. Don’t let the name fool you – an authentic Tempura mix is very versatile and not just for Japanese cuisine!
Tempura Batter Mix Creates the Best Beer Batter
A Tempura mix for beer batter? Yes, if it’s an authentic tempura mix. Not all tempura batters are the same and it’s important to make sure you choose an Authentic Tempura Batter mix. Many commercial tempura batter mix brands contain flavors, thickeners and egg and just can’t compete in keeping a crispy texture for more than 10 minutes, But an Authentic Tempura batter mix from Upper Crust Enterprises is flavor neutral and will stay light and crispy for more than 60 minutes.
Our authentic tempura batter has a short list of ingredients: free of preservatives, MSG, thickeners, spices, flavoring and eggs. The lack of spices and flavorings is what makes our authentic tempura batter mix so versatile. Simply add your favorite beer to create a batter that will keep your fish tender with a light and crisp coating that is never soggy or oily. The secret is a blend of two flours plus an ingredient from Japan that helps the flours work together to create a light crispy coating.
The Multi-Purpose Batter Mix
Our authentic tempura mix is a multi purpose batter mix that is versatile and completely customizable. Traditional light and crispy tempura coating, just add water. Spicy? No problem, add hot sauce and water. Sweet, of course, just add fruit juice. Be as creative as you’d like and create a unique “one of kind” taste for your restaurant. The types of liquids you can use in our mix are as varied as the food you choose to coat.
It can also be used as a pre-batter with Panko, replacing flour and egg wash, allowing you to offer more vegan and vegetarian options on your menu.
Our Authentic Tempura Batter will stay crispy longer than other foodservice brands. The average competitor brand becomes soft and oily after less than 10 minutes. Upper Crust Enterprises Tempura stays crispy, without an oily taste, for over 60 minutes. A huge difference and that’s just one of the many things that sets our batter mix apart from the crowd.
