Carolina Ingredients has a highly trained R&D department that can take your current blend and match it to your "Better for You" product offerings.
We have expertise in clean label, lower sodium, gluten free or vitamin fortified formulations.
Below are some recent new developments in each category:
We can take or create a formula to meeting clean label/all natural by removing artificial flavor and colors, plus eliminate high fructose corn syrup.
Gluten free offerings have skyrocketed since 2008. The FDA final ruling indicates by August 2014, items that are certified gluten free must have less than 20ppm of detectable gluten. At Carolina Ingredients, our standard allergen control process allows us to safely blend gluten free items. This, combined with outside laboratory testing, provides you and your end consumer with peace of mind.
We can blend on site to lower sodium content by using our USDA Certified Natural Sea Salt Lower Sodium proprietary blend called Merisal. Currently available in 57% and 35% reduced sodium versions. We also offer USDA Organic 57% Merisal. Merisal is clean label, tastes great, yet doesn't remove the depth of flavor your customer expects. We can also custom blend to your sodium level requirements
Carolina Ingredients has the ability to encapsulate ingredients performance and achieve vitamin enrichment, or add fiber while protecting flavor profile and functionality.This is an emerging trend and we have created test blends for some of our customers. For example we added vitamin fortification to a cheese blend for chip application.
