New All-natural Brine System for Poultry

12 January 2012

GLOBAL - The global launch of a new brine system offers a unique all-natural solution for the replacement of phosphates in poultry applications.

Developed through a fresh collaboration between three companies - Marigot, AllinAll Ingredients and Naturis - the product delivers a specific functionality in the components of the system that is not currently available elsewhere.

Referred to as 'All Natural Brine System,' the new product consists of a blend of unique, natural ingredients formulated to improve yields and enhance taste in poultry meats. These benefits are achieved through increased mineral and binding activity, compared to synthetic alternatives such as sodium phosphate, as well as reduced cook loss.

"Phosphate reduction is a growing issue for meat producers under pressure from retailers and consumers for more natural products - particularly in the markets we are targeting," said Daniel Hickey, AllinAll Ingredients' MD.

"As an e-number free product, the All Natural Brine System offers the sought-after clean label declaration, as well as the important functional benefits traditionally delivered by phosphates."

The three companies offer complementary expertise as David O'Leary, commercial manager for Marigot, said: "The collaboration brings together our formulation knowledge with the market insights and meat sector expertise of our partners.

"By combining our multi-mineral Aquamin ingredient with the natural components supplied by AllinAll Ingredients and Naturis, we are able to optimise activity within the brine system; providing poultry processors with an added value, high-performance, all-natural phosphate replacer."

"This is a positive development and one which will support poultry processors looking to capitalise on global demand for clean labelling," added Frantz Smet, MD for Naturis.

All Natural Brine System will be marketed by AllinAll Ingredients as part of its functional ingredients portfolio for the international meat market - with particular focus on the UK, EU and Middle East markets.
