The All Natural line of Eatem Flavor Concentrates offers authentic flavors based on real-world profiles. It is a product line that captures natural flavors, something thats currently in demand. Made by incorporating new technology with traditional culinary processes and quality ingredients, these natural concentrates provide a clean-label enhancement option that meets the general guidelines of major natural food retailers like Whole Foods Market.
No artificial flavors, colors or preservatives has always been the Eatem Foods theme and, indeed, a basis of the companys product design ever since it started business 25 years ago. Part of the heritage and philosophy of Eatem Foods Company and the general appeal of this product line is the culinary approach and the partnership role shared with the companys customer base. Our sales team is excellent at identifying customer needs and communicating those needs to us. When they asked for all natural flavor systems, we were already prepared. Relationship building is a key factor in quickly delivering the right products to help our customers be successful, says Bill Cawley, manager of culinary services and corporate executive chef.
We work closely with product developers and are cognizant of the challenges they face during the development process. Because of our brand identity and solutions-based approach to service and product development, our customers invite us in at the initial stages of a project. Our products are designed to offer convenience and more workable solutions with greater functionality. As a result, the features we build into the systems are significant and meaningful, states Cawley. Once a flavor target is determined, we formulate base notes, natural flavor keys native to flavor design and add top notes. We favor simplicity, and it shows up via clean labels.
Eatem chefs produce gold-standard flavor models based on a variety of fresh ingredient sources and cooking processes. Once the profile is complete, design-friendly features are addeda concentrated form, reduced sodium levels and clean labels. Initial flavor impact of the All Natural line remains high despite lower salt levels. The line multitasks: It works as a set of building blocks for developers to formulate all-natural products, gives high flavor to healthy food products, and makes up for flavor loss due to reduced fat, salt, sugar or lack of allergens in the formula.
All Natural Flavor Concentrates are made with all-natural ingredients and no artificial flavors, preservatives or color additives. This line adds flavor to frozen prepared entrées, soups, sauces and gravies. They are available in paste form, packed in 50-lb. pails and 600-lb. drums that may be stored refrigerated or frozen.
