Preservative-Free Pantry

By making your own ingredients, you know exactly what is going into your food – natural ingredients without preservatives, without allergens and with less sugar and salt than store-bought staples.

Use Whole and Fresh Ingredients

Purchase ingredients in their whole form, then use your Thermomix® to create what you need when you want it. For instance, keep sugar in your cupboard, and then mill it into icing sugar as needed. Or make your own flour mixtures from whole grains. Keep spices fresher for longer by buying them in their whole form. Create your own ingredients just before using to keep their freshness and flavour.

Five Reasons to Make Your Own Ingredients

  1. Healthy: real food, without hidden ingredients. The best way to know what you are eating is to cook from scratch.
  2. Easily manage food allergies: make ingredients that are difficult to find or expensive, for instance gluten free ingredients. You can also control the amount of salt and sugar in your family's food.
  3. Easy: controlled temperatures and the many Thermomix® functions -- chopping, grinding, blending, kneading, etc. -- make it easy to produce your own ingredients.
  4. Save money: All you need are a few basic ingredients to get started. Using fresh seasonal produce and buying items in bulk can also save money. You have complete control over your ingredients and your food waste.
  5. Good for the environment: reduce waste by reusing jars, bottles and other containers.
