Spice girls reunion

The Spice Collection of flavors adds a touch of natural sophistication and complexity to food and beverage products. A modern twist places Black Pepper, Pink Peppercorn, Star Anise, Clove Bud and Saffron firmly in the beverage arena, while their inherent heat means that Cinnamon, Capsicum, Cardamom and Liquorice add warmth to bakery and dairy. Completing this collection, Juniper Berry is suitable for meat-based savories, and it even works brilliantly in beer. Sensient Flavors; Hoffman Estates, Ill.; 847-755-5300;

Clean-label chilled food preservative

Preserve dips, spreads and deli-style salads with Verdad Ovvio 410, a clean label solution that is a natural alternative to artificial ingredients like sorbates and benzoates. Produced through the fermentation of cane sugar combined with specialty vinegar, Verdad Ovvio 410 is a natural solution used to control microbial spoilage in chilled salads, maintaining quality and flavor. It is suited to a wide range of chilled applications from potato salad and coleslaw to refrigerated sauces and dips. In addition to boosting food safety, the ingredient also enhances savory notes, such as tomato, spices and herbs, while ensuring end products maintain a fresh taste. The ingredient is non-genetically modified as well as allergen and gluten-free. Corbion; Lenexa, Ka.; 800-669-4092;

Looks and feels like meat

Achieve the appearance and texture of meat in vegetarian products and meat, poultry and seafood enhancement applications with TruTex textured protein. The ingredient is sourced from non-GMO wheat and takes on the appearance and texture of meat when hydrated, including fibrous structure of chicken and pulled pork, and crumbled beef. This is said to make the ingredient ideal for producing beef-like patties, fillings for tacos, burritos and wraps, as well as principal ingredients for sloppy joe mixes, chili and similar dishes. TruTex is available in a variety of sizes and shapes that include shreds, flakes and small particles. Depending on type, it is offered in up to three different colors: light tan, caramel and dark caramel. MGP; Atchison, Kan.; 913-367-1480;

Paprika oleoresins

Achieve sweeter paprika flavor notes and higher color values with low heat pungency with powder made with paprika oleoresin obtained from a variety of Capsicum Annum L. Practice has shown that 1kg of paprika oleoresin replaces 12-15kg of paprika powder with respect to color intensity. The company’s paprika oleoresin is offered in both oil and water-soluble forms with color value ranging from 3,000cu up to 200,000cu and are available in pails, drums, crates or batch packed to fit specific applications. Henry Broch Foods; Gurnee, Ill.; 847-816-6255;

Green tea TBHQ replacement

A recent study shows how the company’s oil-soluble green tea extract NaturFort LGR 105 can be used in par-fried meat and poultry applications including deli meats to replace tertiary butylhydroquinone (TBHQ) while still providing flavor stabilization to the frying oil used for par-fried foods. The study results indicate that oil-soluble green tea extract provides equal performance to traditionally used TBHQ, while sensory evaluation of the oil-soluble green tea extract showed no negative sensory impact to flavor, color or quality attributes of the meat. Kemin Industries; Des Moines, Iowa; 515-559-5100;
