Innophos launches new multi-faceted ingredient solution
Innophos, a specialty ingredient solutions provider, unveils a new multi-faceted ingredient solution that helps food processors reduce processing time while improving the taste, texture and appearance of bacon and other meat products. Innophos Optibalance 200, a specialty blend ingredient, was created to achieve “peak flavour and appearance of bacon while also producing greater yield”.
“Optibalance 200 is a great way for processors to reduce ingredient costs while speeding up processing time and improving throughput of pork-brined bacon and other meat products,” said Songwei Wu, staff scientist, Innophos. “As an alternative to STPP (sodium tripolyphosphate), Optibalance 200 allows processors to use less ingredients with improved results. We can increase the dissolving rate of the pork brine, which also means less equipment downtime to clean clogged injection equipment and improved safety. This innovative solution is a win-win for both food processors and consumers alike.”
