Almonds for health benefits

As consumers increasingly opt for specific dietary preferences like gluten, dairy or soy free, flexitarian, and plant-forward, almonds stand out as a nutritious, in-demand ingredient suitable for a wide range of product development needs. Without sacrificing on flavor and texture, almonds bring unique nutritional benefits to products, including: satiety, heart smart nutrients, prebiotic effects, stabilized blood sugar and potential skin benefits. To help manufacturers maximize almonds’ potential, the Almond Board has made available expertise and resources based on several decades of research. Almond Board of California

Umami and kokumi

Umami, also known as the fifth taste, elevates, enriches and improves succulence, while kokumi brings depth, fullness of the mouth and richness. Used together, they ensure depth, roundness and deliciousness for savory products in a variety of applications, including prepared meals, soups, sauces, snacks, meat and meat-alternatives tailored to suit local markets. While food scientists continue to actively study these tastes, chefs have long used them to create delicious and memorable dishes. Integrating umami and kokumi effectively into savory products requires understanding how they interact with each other and with other ingredients. The Explore Umami and Kokumi program is designed to assist the food and restaurant industries around the world as they explore these emerging new tastes and options for their products. Kerry

Natural Black Forest ham flavor ingredient with functional benefits

This all-natural powdered flavor is designed to add the smoky taste of Black Forest ham to savory and meat applications, and it doubles as a functional protein solution for many meat products. It is derived from the skin surrounding smoked Black Forest hams produced in southwest Germany. After removal from the smoked hams, the skin undergoes a thermal and mechanical treatment that removes fat and preserves the taste, while creating a versatile functional ingredient with emulsifying properties. The ingredient will be marketed as ProFlavor P BF to blenders and producers in the savory segment and as ScanPro P BF to meat manufacturers. Essentia Protein Solutions

They can be used in baked goods or chocolate products, general confectionery, cereals and ice cream, among others. The range is allergen-free and free from palm oil.
