Lycored’s dry tomato pulp is the perfect replacement for tomato paste, which tends to be inconsistent in terms of quality
A dry tomato pulp that offers an innovative three-in-one ingredient solution for prepared food products will take centre stage for Lycored at this year’s Food ingredients Europe (stand 6S45).
The new dry tomato pulp is a 100% natural foodstuff ingredient from tomato that can be declared on the label simply as ‘Tomato.’ It adds a vibrant, authentic and consistent red colour to sauces (including pasta sauces), condiments, soups, ready meals and processed meats with no risk of turning brown like some other colourants. It also provides an appealing texture and a high-fibre content – both soluble and insoluble – that can be declared on the label to enhance a product’s health credentials.
Lycored’s dry tomato pulp is the perfect replacement for tomato paste, which tends to be inconsistent in terms of quality. It is also the ideal clean-label substitute for commonly used thickeners such as starch, which are unappealing to consumers seeking out products containing ingredients they understand and recognise as natural.
The new dry tomato pulp is available in easily soluble dry granule form. It is part of Lycored’s 100% Tomato – Foodstuff ingredients portfolio, a range of natural tomato-based ingredients that offer a ‘real food’ solution to improving the taste, texture and appearance in recipes. The full range will be available to view on Lycored’s stand at FiE 2015.
Lycored, the global leader in carotenoids, will also showcase its range of natural colours – vibrant reds, oranges and yellows — that make it easy for food and beverage manufacturers to stop using artificial ingredients.
Natural colours from Lycored are certified Kosher and Halal, non-GMO, vegetarian and are heat, light and pH stable. They give an authentic appearance to a wide range of products time after time – but not at the expense of a clean label, ensuring products don’t just look good, but are good too.
Available in the Lycored natural colourings range are two core offerings:
