Tomato pulp takes centre stage
A Dry Tomato Pulp that offers an innovative three-in-one ingredient solution for prepared food products will take centre-stage for Lycored year.
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 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 can be used to replace 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.
Natural colours from Lycored are non-GMO, vegetarian and are heat, light and pH stable.
