ABOUT FILLO

Fillo dough was born in Turkey during the Ottoman reign and has ever since traveled the globe from the Mediterranean and Europe to Africa and North America where it has been embraced with open arms. There are many well-known traditional desserts that are made using the dough and during the past decade the use of fillo has evolved dramatically.

Fillo is a pastry dough layered in very thin sheets that becomes flaky when baked, used especially in Greek and middle eastern dishes. Strudel dough and fillo dough are used in similar fashion. They are both often layered and brushed lightly in between with melted butter and oil that result in puffed-up height. However, as opposed to puffed dough, fillo is very low in fat and is cholesterol free.

ABOUT OUR FILLO

We offer customized packaging such as private labeling which allows the distributor to portray its own distinct image and retain customer loyalty. Our products are also available in different sizes, shapes and formats to cater to individual needs. Along with our machine-produced fillo dough, that you have become accustomed to, we are one of the few manufacturers of hand-made fillo dough, known as Alpha. The stretching and layering of this fillo is an art in its own. It is a must-see! This technique produces the thinnest fillo dough available in the market.

USEFUL TIPS FOR WORKING WITH OUR FILLO DOUGH

Fillo is a paper-thin dough that is used in many sweet and savoury recipes. It can be refrigerated for several weeks or frozen for months.

To defrost, leave fillo in refrigerator overnight.
Never thaw fillo at room temperature, as dough strips will cling to one another.
Organize all cooking/baking ingredients and utensils prior to unwrapping the fillo dough. Fillo has a tendency to dry quickly when exposed to air.
To prevent the sheets from drying, keep the unused sheets covered with a damp cloth.
Roll remaining dough and keep in refrigerator
