FOR THE MANUFACTURER
FOR THE RETAILER
FOR THE CONSUMER
Today’s consumers, who are more health-conscience than ever, read labels looking for ingredients that are simple, natural, and easy to understand. This trend, which is broad based over the entire food category, adds dynamism to the marketplace and challenges for retailers.
Surveys reveal that three out of four Americans will choose natural/organic foods over conventional foods at comparable prices. More than a quarter of grocery dollars are now devoted to natural/organic - up over 35% from four years ago.
Due to this trend, Food Scientists are compelled to eliminate synthetic chemicals and curious declarations without compromising quality.
Color and texture are two variables that have defined meat quality over generations and cannot be compromised, even when natural.
Equally important for the processor is shelf stability and optimized process yield including purge. Florida Food Products – a veteran of natural solutions – has developed and patented unique functional natural ingredients that appeal to consumers while satisfying processors.
Using locally grown celery, Florida Food Products invented Veg Stable® a minimally processed all natural celery powder that eliminates the need for synthetic curing agents such as Sodium Nitrite.
For texture, Florida Food Products has a patented new class of FiberColloids™ specifically, TexDry LC® for the meat industry. TexDry LC® is the first gelling fiber that replaces phosphate, soy, and other perplexing named ingredients. Thermo-stable, irreversible and calcium reactive TexDry LC® reduces purge, increases yield, and improves texture.
