Lucini Italia expands number of Kosher Certified products

Lucini Italia is proud to announce the expansion of its Kosher Parve certified food products to include four Infused Premium Select Extra Virgin Olive Oils® and its newest product line – Cinque e’ Cinque, a chickpea flour baking mix. Inspired by Tuscany’s culinary traditions, these handcrafted products are 100% natural.

The line of Infused Premium Select Extra Virgin Olive Oils® are among the best infused oils in the world, made from 100% natural essential oils and spices. Hand-picked olives grown on small, family-owned Tuscan farms are blended with a carefully selected mix of essential oils creating four, delicious flavors: Delicate Lemon, Robust Garlic, Tuscan Basil and Fiery Chili. Full of distinct flavor, each “liquid spice” offers a convenient and delicious way to add garlic, lemon, basil and chili to favorite dishes without the messy prep work, making it an indispensible pantry item.

Introduced to the market in June 2010, Cinque e′ Cinque is an easy-to-use custom-milled chickpea flour baking mix that is naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and vegan.  Known as a “farinata” or “torta di ceci” in Italy, Cinque e′ Cinque is also low glycemic, an excellent source of fiber and contains nine grams of protein, making it ideal for those on a restricted diet or anyone wanting an authentic Italian food experience.  Each single use pouch is simply prepared by combining the mix with water and Lucini® extra virgin olive oil and then baking in an ultra-hot oven. The result is a delicious and savory “chickpea frittata” – crispy and golden on top, and soft and moist underneath. Visit WhatisCinque.com for more information on this storied Italian treat.

Lucini® Premium Select Extra Virgin Olive Oil®, Lucini® Limited Reserve 100% Organic Premium Select Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and now the infused oils and Cinque e’ Cinque are certified Kosher Parve by one of the largest kashrus certification agencies in North America, Star-K. Kosher Parve certification is used to declare that a product is appropriate for consumption under Jewish Law. Parve represents foods such as vegetables, fruits and grains.

With healthful products full of authentic Italian flavors, Lucini Italia is raising the bar for Kosher home cooking. This extensive line of extra virgin olive oils and authentic Italian foods presents home cooks with a myriad of options to make mealtime easier, more exciting and tastier with food products that are always 100% natural.
