The high protein in Field Roast products comes from vital wheat gluten. Vital wheat gluten is made by rinsing the starches out of a wheat dough through a kneading process using water. In a large flour mill, the process begins by mixing water into the wheat flour to make a dough. The dough is then placed into a centrifuge where the starches are removed. This leaves pure wheat protein that is dried and ground into vital wheat gluten flour.
Vegetables are a very important part of all Field Roast products. We are able to create rich, natural flavors by using whole ingredients from the earth. Among these ingredients are Yukon gold potatoes, Washington apples, butternut squash, mushrooms, red and green bell peppers, eggplant, cranberries, carrots, celery and much more.
Each Field Roast product has a unique blend of spices to complement and enhance their natural flavors. Hints of ginger and rubbed sage are found in the Smoke Apple Sage Sausage, cumin and oregano in the Mexican Chipotle Sausage, and garlic and fennel in the Italian Sausage. A warming blend of nutmeg, ginger and black pepper is offered from the Apple Maple Breakfast Sausage.
