UK-based Sirane's new steam-cooking bag allows retailers to send customers home with meal that can be immediately placed in oven or microwave

– STEAM cooking is one of the healthiest ways to cook – but it is not always easy or practical. Step forward the Si-bag™, Sirane’s steam-cooking bag for oven or microwave.
Sirane’s Si-bag™ is a cook-in bag which allows all the flavours to be sealed in for simple, tasty cooking – perfect for healthy cooking and portion control, without sacrificing flavour.
The Si-bag™ is a cook-in bag designed to be used safely in a conventional oven up to 200 degrees celsius, in a microwave - and even in a freezer for subsequent reheating and eating.
Jeremy Haydn-Davies, Sirane sales director, said: “Simple healthy steam cooking and straight-to oven or microwave food doesn’t have to sacrifice on flavours like many people think.
“People have lots of reasons for wanting to cook steamed food in this way. For some it is the convenience, for some it is for health reasons, for some it could be as simple as portion control and knowing exactly what they’re eating. But for all of them, it can still be tasty.
“And often, when people do cook this way, they find it is a way of cooking stunning food easily. One of the real advantages of the Si-bag™ is the simplicity of the product.
“Using the Si-bag™ retains all the flavours, it allows people to cook quickly and easily with fresh ingredients. Healthy eating and fast food can be combined.”
All the natural flavours of the meat, fish or vegetables are sealed in the bag during cooking, creating a sensational and healthy meal. Flavoured butters and glazes can be added.
The Si-bag™ can be used as a retail counter bag – but is also available in retail packs so that users can add their own ingredients and use the bags in a way that suits them.
“Sell your fish in a bag or with some bags, the choice is yours,” added Mr Haydn-Davies.
The Si-bag™ has been developed by Sirane’s engineers and scientists. It is a bag made from very high temperature resistant film, which combines practicality with simplicity. The meal is sealed in using a fold-over flap and the bag becomes odour and leak-proof.
Simon Balderson, Sirane’s MD, said: “The Si-bag™ is not only perfect for home users wanting to create a simple yet tasty meal, but also for retailers wanting to send customers home with a great tasting meal that can just be popped straight into the oven or microwave.”
