Shelf-life enhancer

Frutarom Savory Solutions introduces Origanox OS-T, an oil-soluble variant within its portfolio of natural plant extracts that helps maintain the freshness, taste and quality of baked goods, extruded snacks and fried foods throughout their shelf life. The extract remains stable and active at temperatures of more than 180 deg. C, which are commonly achieved when baking, extruding or frying. In addition, it’s free from emulsifiers, doesn’t impact the finished products’ taste or smell and can be labeled as “natural flavor” or “natural plant extract,” according to the company. It’s available in liquid form and is said to be easy to use.

Sodium reducers

Kudos Blends is showcasing several new sodium reduction innovations this month at the 2014 IFT Annual Meeting & Food Expo in New Orleans. KUDOS Potassium Bicarbonate is a sodium-free, alternative carbonate source that bakers can use to replace sodium bicarbonate and achieve sodium reduction. An alternative to sodium aluminum phosphate (SALP), KUDOS SALP Replacer is a zero-aluminum leavening acid that provides a match for the distinct gas-release profile of SALP in both batters and dough products, enabling bakers to remove aluminum from formulations, while maintaining end-product quality.
