Natural preservation for meat snacks

Given consumer concerns prompted by the global pandemic, perhaps it's not surprising that meat snack products have seen continued growth of late. Whether in the form of meat sticks, jerkies, or snacks, these shelf-stable, high-protein treats, which have been around for centuries, are more popular than ever.

The ability to create products with fewer and simpler ingredients is limited and clean labels are a built-in strength for the meat snacks category.

To help processors respond to market demand for products with naturally derived ingredients, Corbion offers a number of vinegar- and ferment-based solutions for mold control and improved yield under its Verdad® brand, including Verdad Powder N20, Verdad Powder N30, and Verdad Opti Powder XM10. Our Verdad® Avanta celery powder provides another effective way to create products made from simpler, and fewer, ingredients.

Corbion solutions allow you to:

  • Increase product yield for better product performance

  • Achieve a longer shelf life, even for large, multi-serving packages

  • Integrate seamlessly for easy addition or replacement of ingredient solutions in your formulations

  • Leverage advanced predictive modeling, increasing your speed to market

  • Reap the benefits of curing using naturally derived ingredients
