Meat, Poultry And Seafood Ingredients

Innovation Formulated For Superior Sensory Results.

Hawkins extensive portfolio of proprietary and traditional ingredients gives our customers a decided edge in creating the solutions they need to succeed. It starts with e(Lm)inate®, our new line of low-inclusion antimicrobials that are especially effective at controlling listeria while cutting usage up to 50%. Now available in a naturally dry vinegar formula, e(Lm)inate excels in a wide variety of meat, poultry, and seafood applications while having little to no sensory impact.

UltraLac and Ultra-Pure Bestate are superior-tasting, shelf-life-extending antimicrobial salts for fresh pork and beef and Ready to Eat (RTE) meat and poultry products. UltraPhos, our proprietary concentrated DKP, is one of the few ingredients that makes coextrusion economical. Our vast offerings and blending expertise truly make us your ultimate resource for controlling listeria and pathogens while also improving shelf-life, yield, texture, and color.
