Improving Processed Meat Production Cost Efficiency and Quality
DuPont™ Danisco® ingredients can improve profit margins, even in a challenging global economy, by helping to reduce processed meat production raw material costs, extending product shelf life, and entering higher-margin market segments.
Lowering Raw Material Costs
GRINDSTED® Meatline and GRINDSTED® Meatbinder can help reduce processed meat production material costs by improving yield and minimizing cooking loss. These stabilizer systems improve the sensory appeal of lower-quality raw materials, transforming meat trimmings into higher-value, whole muscle-like medallions, and ground meat into juicy burgers or nuggets.
GRINDSTED® Meatline, which is also ideal for fat reduction, improves the quality of low-salt and phosphate-free meat products.
Extending Shelf Life
Waste reduction is another important route to cost savings. That’s why the Care4U™ range of natural food protection solutions includes antioxidants, such as GUARDIAN™ Rosemary Extract, for shelf-life extension, in addition to a broad range of natural antimicrobials.
Clean Label Alternatives
Even in a global economic recession, many consumers have been willing to pay more for products with a cleaner ingredient label. For premium meat products, a clean label is a clear priority. Demand continues to grow for TEXEL® NatuRed cultures, a range of meat cultures that produce cured meats and sausages with the color, flavor and shelf life traditionally achieved with nitrite salts.
