Clean Label

Simplify Your Label 

Why clean label? Because consumers want and demand more label transparency and are avoiding ingredients that they don’t understand or can’t pronounce.   What consumers want is easy to understand, consumer-friendly ingredients.   However, you still need a proven antimicrobial to protect your consumers and your brand.

e(Lm)inate® Clean Label Product Line:

Everyone knows about vinegar,  it’s simple, easy to understand and a scientifically proven antimicrobial.

Introducing NatBind – Your Clean Label Phosphate Alternative

NatBind is a functional blend of natural ingredients that:

  • Improves texture
  • Improves moisture retention and fat stability
  • Slows the rate of oxidation

NatBind is customized to your needs and is manufactured with either a Whey Protein Concentrate or a Fiber based system.

Current clean label trends are preventing the use of phosphates in many processed meat and poultry products. However, phosphates have many functional benefits in protein systems and are not easily substituted for with a single ingredient.

The Ingredient Works offering of phosphate alternatives under our NatBind product family incorporates a carefully formulated system of ingredients. These products are designed to off-set the yield, appearance, and shelf life issues that are prominent when phosphates are removed from food product formulations.
