Innovative flavour creations for BBQ sauces

Inspiring product ideas based on global consumer and market trends.

The past months have put consumers and industry to a tough test. All the more consumers are longing for a return to normality and thus for an increased focus on taste and product diversity. Although the start of the BBQ season was a bit bumpy this year, it is the small measure of normality that connects industry and consumers to bring back the pleasure and joy of good food. Without any doubt, BBQ sauces represent an indispensable classic in this respect.

 

 

Consumer Insights: What trends and expectations define a good BBQ sauce?

Consumers are looking for multi-sensory taste experiences. They are demanding exciting and versatile product innovations based on extraordinary combinations of ingredients from around the world. Due to their increasing health awareness, younger generations in particular are paying closer attention to natural ingredients. They are equally focusing on the origin and manufacture of products. At the same time, popularity for plant-based and organic BBQ sauces is rising.

When formulating BBQ sauces, unique and innovative flavours based on high quality and natural ingredients can contribute to attract new consumer target groups and thus boost retail sales on a global scale.

 

Innovative and aromatic taste varieties for BBQ sauces

Our invigorating product concepts are based on traditional American BBQ sauce recipes. With appealing smoke profiles and the use of various spices, we are meeting the market requirements in Western Europe, while focusing on current market and consumer trends such as the willingness to experiment.

Whether you are looking for exotic and fruity creations, intense smoky profiles or sweet-chocolate notes with a hint of chili – Bell's extraordinary flavour profiles can turn BBQ sauce into a unique taste experience. Thus, satisfying the consumer's need for exciting and authentic product varieties. Our intense and complex flavour profiles are characterised by consistent quality and are also free of added flavour-enhancing ingredients.

Get to know our Chef's Favourite BBQ Sauce Varieties

 

Smoked Apple Butter BBQ

Flavour profiles: Apple Flavour, Type Smoke Flavour, Cinnamon Flavour Powder

Our Chef‘s recommendation: This highly concentrated form of apple sauce, produced by long, slow cooking of apples with cider, caramelises to give that rich dark buttery and smokey profile.

Cola BBQ

Flavour profiles: Cola Flavour, Allspice Flavour Powder

Our Chef‘s recommendation: Cola’s sweetness and slight pimento-like taste component’s rounds off BBQ sauces, perfectly. A treat for BBQ sauces of all ages.

Pacific Rim BBQ

Flavour profiles: Pineapple Flavour, Papaya Flavour, Mango Flavour

Our Chef‘s recommendation: A tropical taste of pineapple, mango and ripe papaya, rounded off with the finish of smoke offers a fantastically fruity experience.

Barrel Aged BBQ

Flavour profiles: Oak Cast Smoke Flavour, Pineapple Flavour

Our Chef‘s recommendation: An Oak cast barrel smoke that brings with it hints of vanilla and caramel to the BBQ sauce makes this our signature profile and pairs with everything grilled.

XO BBQ

Flavour profiles: Allspice Flavour Powder, Sauce, XO Type Flavour, Coriander Flavour Powder

Our Chef‘s recommendation: East and West merge in this combination of two classic sauces, with umami richness and savoury soy adds to this authentic version on modern Asian BBQ.

Guajillo Loco

Flavour profiles: Pepper/Guajillo Flavour, Garlic Flavour

Our Chef‘s recommendation: Meeting our consumers demand for spice around the globe, the guajillo chili and the intense garlic profile makes this sauce just so loco.

Shawarma Grill

Flavour profiles: Smoke/fatty Flavour and Smoke, Grill Flavour

Our Chef‘s recommendation: Shawarma spice blends were created in the Middle East for rotisserie meats, when adding grill and smoke flavours to warming spices it showcases this region perfectly.

Mole BBQ

Flavour profiles: Cumin Flavour Powder, Pepper, Type Chipotle Morita Flavour, Dark Chocolate Flavour

Our Chef‘s recommendation: Mexico’s favourite dish, Chipotle Chili and Chocolate are a great combination for this warm spice and savoury BBQ profile, inspired by a dish I ate in Mexico City, Mole Madre by Enrique Olvera, Pujol.

Carolina Red

Flavour profiles: Tabasco Flavour, Smoke/woody Flavour

Our Chef‘s recommendation: True pit master sauce and made not only for those spice fanatics. When dredged over some fatty pork shoulder this BBQ sauce of smoke, heat and tangy flavours brings everything to balance.
