Foodoo: A Form of Magic at IFT

O ne of the exhibitors at the 2008 IFT Food Expo will be showcasing a “Foodoo” Café at its booth. Which

brings to mind the question: If there is such a thing as foodoo, what kind of foodoo do you do? Or to put it another way, what kind of power does foodoo possess to help today’s food formulator address a changing marketplace? Naturally, the term shouldn’t be confused with voodoo, which is a type of religion characterized by certain rituals closely associated with nature. And for those who watch movies late at night, it might conjure up an image of a zombie or two, as well. No, foodoo is nothing like that. If we were to guess, it might mean the magic that happens when food science, technology, and culinary artistry come together to produce innovative products that foreshadow emerging trends and the things to come in the marketplace. If that is so, we can expect to see a lot of foodoo being practiced at this year’s show in New Orleans. For example, imagine a natural colorant that enables food-product developers to obtain a shelf-stable blue hue at a lower pH than conventional anthocyanin-based products. Or an “acid marshmallow” that has a low-pH environ- ment necessary for the incorporation of citrus fl avors such as lime, lemon, or grapefruit. Or an enzyme that can be used

Several ingredient developments promise to enhance or modify the fl avors of fi nished products. Soy sauce, yeast extracts, Asian sauces, and reduced-sodium blends are all part of this foodoo kit. The foodoo gods will be working their magic on a wide range of innovative applications. How about a Floribbean crab cake with a chimichurri drizzle served with cooling lime and habanero plantains? Or hash browns that have been reformulated with cheese for a tasty breakfast item, Cheesy Hash Browns? Or a wide range of snacks made with new soybean oils? Or a Cajun-inspired Turducken served with a sweet potato crawfi sh spread on a hush puppy andouille pancake? And if you should happen to “order” a Double Bourbon and Cola , keep in mind that things have defi nitely been jazzed up around here. This prototype happens to feature Bourbon vanilla ice cream twisted with a Bourbon-, whisky-, and cola-fl avored water ice. Several companies also will be celebrating their anniversaries, and as part of the festivities, will be launching new developments. And many others are expanding their business efforts by forming strategic alliances, building new development and processing facilities, and introducing their ingredients into new food products and markets. Is there no end to the magic of foodoo? Well, you’ll have to decide for yourself as you go through the following pages of this Ingredients preview. And if you should happen to see a zombie at this year’s IFT Annual Meeting and Food Expo, tell him that he’s at the wrong place. Based on the wide range of innovations highlighted in the preview, everyone’s wide awake here and alive with new ideas.

Lemongrass will be offered in a fresh pureed form

A traditional fl avoring in Thai and other Pacifi c Rim and Caribbean cuisines, lemongrass offers a hint of citrus without the lemony bite. Several trend watches name lemongrass as one of the top fl avors for 2008. Refreshing and light with

a hint of ginger, this delicate fl avor is traditionally diffi cult to process for commercial use. A special cutting process has been developed which creates a whole puree that “melts in your mouth.” Three different types of lemongrass are offered,

including one frozen with no preservatives, one refrigerated with citric acid, vinegar, and salt (for salad dressings), and one soft-frozen variety. The soft-frozen line offers formulators a scoopable form of lemongrass in a frozen state.

Natural colorant provides shelf-stable blue hue

A natural colorant enables food product developers to obtain a shelf-stable blue hue at a lower pH than conventional anthocyanin- based products. Available in liquid or powdered form, it increases the range of foods that can be formulated with a non-synthetic blue colorant. Anthocyanins, whether derived from fruit or vegetable juices, exhibit a reversible molecular structural change—from red to purple to blue— as the pH of their environment changes from acidic to basic. This innovation, however, demonstrates a shelf-stable blue hue at pH 5.5–8.0, whereas antho- cyanins normally demonstrate a faded and unstable purple hue at pH 5.5. The water-soluble blue colorant, derived from anthocyanins extracted from vegetable juice, recently obtained U.S. Patent No. 7279189.

Water-soluble green colorants can be created by adding a variety of yellow colorants to the natural blue colorant. Also available is a new brochure that provides a guide for using blends of natural colors to replace synthetic options. Improved blending of natural colors helps maximize attributes and enhance product stability compared to using a single natural colorant. Selecting the best-performing natural colorant blend requires a thorough understanding of the specifi c application. D.D.

Resources highlight the functionality of the egg

Reducing the sodium content in certain applications can affect product integrity and stability. Egg products can help, as they are capable of binding other ingredients, providing structure and stability, and assisting with moisture migra- tion while not confl icting with fl avors of other ingredients. Eggs can foam, leaven, bind, thicken, coat, color, emulsify, and con- trol crystallization, making many food formulas possible. Custom-blended egg products that include carbohy- drates, gums, starches, sugar, and salt are available to meet manufacturers’ specifi cations and to improve func- tional performance. To simplify your search for an egg product supplier that will meet your needs, visit the

newly revised EGGSolutions section

of American Egg Board’s Web site to learn about the many varieties of dried, refrigerated, and frozen egg products and cross-reference the products to processors and distributors. Also available from AEB are complimentary subscriptions to the quarterly newsletter, EGGSaminer, a product development resource, and a monthly electronic newsletter that contains timely information for product formulators, identifi es the appropriate egg products for various food catego- ries, and highlights the many functions, advantages, processing, storage, and handling aspects.

Starting the day with an egg

New research published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition

suggests that starting the day with an egg breakfast can reduce hunger and help reduce caloric intake by more than 400 calories over the next 24 hours. Researchers discovered that compared to a bagel-based breakfast of equal weight, the egg breakfast induced greater satiety and signifi cantly reduced the participants’ food intake for the rest

of the day. Eggs have an impressive macronutrient composition to contribute to their satiety impact. Further processed egg products also supply excellent functionality, as demonstrated by studies that compare their benefi ts vs various egg replacers in products such as angel food cake, French Vanilla ice cream, and pasta. At a 2008 IFT Supplier Solutions Session, the American Egg Board will give a presentation

on the results of these studies. The session will also provide new research that uncovers more health benefi ts derived from egg consumption. Find out how egg products can help you meet today’s formulation challenges, including gluten-free, weight control, or the

providing of energy. And discover the positive ways that egg products can impact “label health.” IFT Supplier Solutions Session

Processed egg products are available in a wide range of liquid, frozen, and dried forms. Custom blends are also offered to meet specific needs.

Oskaloosa Food Products, www. oskyfoods.com, Booth 4712

Egg products include egg patties with a variety of flavors and inclusions; liquid quiche mix that offers efficiency and premium quality; egg-battered and baked French toast and

Latest research on protein will be discussed by a leading protein scientist from the University of Illi- nois Urbana-Champaign. The amino acid composition of leading protein sources such as eggs will be exam-

ined, as well as the benefits of protein consumption during break- fast. The presentation will be part of a symposium held on Monday,

June 30, 2008. Presentation 065-01 A line of freeze-dried eggs is available for use in a number of applications. The functionality of the egg product will be discussed in specification sheets, along with its benefits over other products. Oregon Freeze Dry Inc., www.ofd.com, Booth 4917

Oven-roasted ingredient provides meat and poultry solutions

A new meat and poultry solution, Oven Roasted Medallions, Strips, and Dices , provides food manufacturers with a number of performance benefi ts. These whole-muscle ingredients, available in turkey, chicken, pork, and beef options, are suitable for entrees, pizzas, calzones, meal kits, salads, and other products. Imagine, for example, Chicken Car- bonara made with the diced chicken. Or Turkey Medallions with Mushroom Gravy featuring glazed medallions. The ingredient, offered in random or exact cuts, demonstrates excellent muscle texture, a natural appearance, and customized fl avor profi les. It is available in Oven Roasted ,

Glazed , and Grill Marked versions. Representatives will be on hand to distribute a new brochure describing further this IQF ingredient, which is refrigerated in 20-, 30-, and 40-lb gas-fl ushed bags. Its initial rollout this past year has proven

successful, and the product will be available for sampling at the show. Land O’Lakes will be highlighting this product as part of its 50th year anniversary as a custom processor providing research and development assistance to food manufacturers. The company develops meat ingredients suited specifi cally to a particular process or end use. Land O’Frost Inc., www.landofrost.com, Booth 4812

Insoluble bers offer functionality benets in meat products

Over the years, many types of insoluble fi bers have been applied to a wide variety of food products. In particular, the baking and cereal industries have made use of the nutritional and functionality properties of fi bers in their products. The meat industry, however, has not adopted the use of fi bers in the same widespread manner, owing primarily to the prohibition on nutrient fortifi cation. Aside from fortifi cation, insoluble

fi bers offer meat producers the ability to alter the texture and “bite” of their products. In particular, the use of mechanically deboned/ separated meat products can result in textural and functionality changes compared to conventionally prepared products. The use of insoluble, colloidal fi bers—either alone or in combination with non-colloidal insoluble fi bers—can restore some of the lost textural properties and

water-holding capacity to meat formulas incorporating mechanically deboned/separated meat components.

Representatives will be available to discuss how insoluble fi bers and colloidal insoluble fi bers offer a viable solution to mitigate some of these challenges while at the same time help to provide further economic benefi t to manufacturers. J. Rettenmaier USA, www.jrusa.com, Booth 3327

0.5% and 3.6% purge after tumbling, the fi ber ingre- dient at the same dosage can reduce the purge down to zero. This results in a 3.6% increased yield. An additional benefi t of the ingredient is that it is not detectable in the mouth and is neutral in terms of fl avor. This means that it can be used in sauce, dairy, and dressing applications to utilize the high water-binding capacity, thickening, and fat-replacement properties without being detected in the mouth. The high degree of internal surface area of the ingredient leaves a larger number of bonding sites available for strong hydrogen bonding and makes an amorphous fi ber structure that is special compared to other fi bers. A presentation on this ingredient and the func- tionality properties it offers in meat products and other applications will be given at a New Products & Technologies session, held on Sunday afternoon, June 29.

• Muscle foods, such as red meat, poultry, and seafood can be restructured by an enzyme, Activa ® transglutaminase, with the ability to cross-link proteins. Restructured breast and thigh products, bacon-wrapped turkey medallions, co-extruded items, and cold-formed products are some of the novel applications that can benefi t from this development. Because the enzyme has the ability to cross-link and strengthen the structure of meat products, it may be used to increase the strength of the meat portion of products such as Cordon Bleu . For meat items wrapped in bacon, the adhesion qualities of the enzyme preparation can keep the bacon attached to the product throughout

the cooking process.

High-intensity sweetener acesulfame K ( Sunett ® ) will be highlighted in health and wellness products. These products, which have fewer calories while maintaining a sugar-like taste, demonstrate how synergistic blends of Sunett and nutri- tive and non-nutritive sweeteners can outperform any single high-intensity sweetener in the replacement of sugar and high fructose corn syrup. Attendees will be able to sample a

variety of low-calorie beverages, including a reduced-sugar energy drink with B vita- mins sweetened with a Sunett /sucralose blend; a green tea enriched with honey and ginseng with a Sunett /aspartame blend; and two elderberry-cherry- flavored beverages, one sweetened with Sunett /sucralose and the other with Sunett /aspartame. Nutrinova Inc., www.nutrinova.com, Booth 3017

Take the sucralose taste test

See if you can tell the difference between a full-sugar application and a calorie- reduced version sweetened with Splenda ® sucralose. Attendees will have such an opportunity to taste test formulations and learn more about the functionality of sucralose vs other sweeteners. With issues such as childhood obesity on the rise, reduction of sugar and calories is relevant for today’s food and beverage manufacturers. The aim of sweetener optimization is to

determine the optimal level of nutritive sweeteners that can be replaced without affecting the flavor profile and other characteristics of the application.

Also highlighted is Promitor soluble corn fiber that can be used to replace tra- ditional sweeteners such as liquid and dry corn sweeteners, sucrose, and sugar alco- hols.

A grapefruit-avored marshmallow?

Marshmallows—fl uffy cushions of air, gelatin, and sugar—are traditionally enjoyed for their texture. A new gelling and foaming system, Rousselot ® ACPE , now makes possible the develop- ment of marshmallows with intense fruit fl avors that require a low pH. These confections, appropriately called “acid marshmallows,” have a pH below 3.4. Such low pH environments are necessary for optimal fl avor release and fl avor expression of many fl avoring systems. Some examples of possible fl avors for

acid marshmallows include citrus fruits such as lime, lemon, or grapefruit. With these new fl avors, acid marshmal- lows give an impression of lightness and fl uffi ness while maintaining traditional marshmallow texture. The system used for their manufacture combines the properties of gelatin and pectin. With this system, stable acid confections can be produced on traditional extruding lines. Process adjustments, along with the application,

have been submitted for a patent. Rous- selot, www.rousselot.com, Booth 4409

Symposium updates the role of milk proteins in dairy foods

The functional properties of milk proteins determine many physicochemical proper- ties of dairy products—for example, the texture of cheese, the viscosity of yogurt, or the stability of milk during heating. A symposium, “CSI New Orleans: The Role of Milk Proteins in Dairy Foods,” will update the properties of milk and whey proteins, focusing in particular on casein structure and function. Casein proteins are present in milk as spherical particle assemblies of about 200 nm in diameter, commonly referred

to as casein micelles. Over the past three decades, researchers have attempted to describe the structure of these micelles, and to understand how these particles behave during the various steps of process- ing dairy products. A presentation reviews the most important properties of the caseins, pointing out how changes to the outer and inner structure of the micelles affect the processing functionality of milk. The symposium will be held on Monday afternoon, June 30, 2–3:30 p.m., Session 103

Prototypes reect the future of cheese

Booth theme, “Best of Food Thinking,” refl ects innovations in cheese and whey ingredients and how these ingredients are being incorporated into new applications. For example, freeze-dried cheese in trail mix can boost energy on a hike. Or orange juice with Clear Pro 75 provides

Gum innovations help broaden application opportunities

A next-generation emulsifi er, TIC Pretested ® Saladizer ® Max , uses modifi ed gum acacia technology to create regular and low-fat dressings and marinades. It can replace propylene glycol alginate in many salad dressings without any discernable difference in mouthfeel. The agglomerated gum system allows for easy dispersion and rapid hydration, resulting in more batches per shift and increased yields from existing production equipment. It is versatile both on its own and when used in combina- tion with other ingredients. Also featured is a beverage emul- sion stabilized with a modifi ed gum acacia product, TICAmulsion A-2010 . This ingredient, part of a line of emulsi- fi ers that has self-affi rmed GRAS status, offers improved functionality

in diffi cult systems such as those that contain oil levels of more than 10%. At the 2008 Supplier Solution Session held on Monday June 30, a presentation will be given titled “A New Twist on an Old Favorite:

Reduced-Odor Guar Gum.” The use of traditional guar gum as a thickener

can sometimes be restricted because of its grassy or beany odor and fl avor that can be detected in delicately fl avored foods. When manufactured using a new process that reduces the chemical compounds that cause these undesirable attributes, the resulting guar gum can be used in a much wider array of applications, including granitas and frozen bever- ages, fi ber bars, meal-replacement drinks, soups, and sauces. TIC Gums, www.ticgums.com, Booth 1133

Stabilizer provides suspension of particulates

Stabilizer system, Textureze UB500 , can be used to create a fl uid gel that provides excellent suspension of particulates and has a water-thin viscosity. It can suspend particulates such as minced seasonings and spices and fruit or vegetable pulp.

In fat-free or low-fat dressings and sauces, the hydrocolloid-based system can provide suspension without adding excessive viscosity. In addition to suspension at low apparent viscosity, the stabilizer has transparency in solution and

provides a light, clean mouthfeel that enables excellent fl avor release. This is especially suitable for

novel beverages and exotic fl avor combinations. ISP Food Ingredients, www.ispcorp.com, Booth 1513

Improving stability of insoluble materials in beverages

A microcrystalline cellulose/carboxym- ethylcellulose product, Avicel ® BV1518 , maintains the stability of insoluble materials such as cocoa and minerals in low-viscosity, neutral pH beverages.

Enzyme reduces acrylamide formation

Acrylamide is classifi ed by the International Agency for Research on Cancer as “probably carcinogenic to humans” based on studies conducted in mice and rats. The potential risk posed to humans by dietary exposure to acrylamide is not yet known, but numerous studies are currently in progress to collect the data needed to make an informed evaluation. The main mechanism for acrylamide formation in starchy foods involves two common components of these foods:

reducing sugars and the amino acid asparagines. The sugars react with

asparagines when the food is heated, and—through a series of reactions—the side chain of asparagines is converted to acrylamide. These reactions, which produce acrylamide, are a small part of a broader set of heat-induced reactions called Maillard reactions that produce the brown color and characteristic tasty fl avor of baked, fried, and toasted foods. One very effective means of reducing acrylamide forma- tion is the removal of asparagine from starchy foods, using the enzyme asparaginase. The enzyme converts asparagine to another common amino acid, aspartic acid, which will not act as a precursor to acrylamide formation. This can be achieved in many foods by simply blending asparaginase into the dough before the fi nal product is baked or fried. When using asparaginase, the fi nal baking or frying process is undisturbed, and Maillard reactions in general, except those involv- ing asparagines, are unaffected. This means that foods produced with asparaginase look and taste the same as untreated foods.

• Treatment of caseins

with the enzyme transglutami- nase can improve functional properties of milk proteins considerably. The enzyme catalyzes the formation of covalent cross-links between proteins. Transglutaminase cross-links both caseins on the micelle surface as well as those in the core of the micelles. As a result of these cross-linking reactions, the stability of casein micelles against acid-induced coagulation is reduced,

leading to fi rmer yogurt gels. More information about the effectiveness of this enzyme in dairy products will be given

in a paper. Nizo Food Research, Presentation 103-03, Booth 625

Specialty enzyme products will be highlighted. Examples of the enzyme port- folio include Flavorase , which enhances fruit juice or wine fl avors, and Aromase , which enhances the aroma of white wine and tea. Also featured is a protein glutaminase, which provides improvement in

‘Superheated’ starch may be used as a fat mimetic

Heating starch in water at a very high temperature results in a creamy, spreadable, and gellable product, known as “superheated starch.” This enables the ingredient to be used as fat mimetic. Compared to maltodextrin, superheated starch has

a key advantage in being functional at low concentrations, which leads to lower energy intake when consumed. The new product can be transformed by UHT treatment into a smooth, cuttable, gelled product. An additional advantage is that the viscos-

ity remains low during the processing. Superheated starch is a physically modifi ed starch and can be produced on an industrial scale using current technology. TNO Food & Nutrition Research, www.tno.nl, Booth 619

Special functional fl ours , most of which are wheat, overcome processing and stability problems and other challenges associated with traditional fl our. These fl ours offer food processors consistency so it is not necessary to constantly adjust fl our content because of seasonal and batch inconsistencies. The fl ours are especially effective in such applications as sauces and dressings. National Starch Food Innovation, www.foodinnovation.com, Booth 3319 Parboiled brown rice, BP-106 , is a low-moisture product that rehydrates in 10 minutes.

Happy birthday to Morton Salt!

Morton Salt Co. is celebrating its 160th anniversary, and to help commemorate this event, Morton rep- resentatives will serve birthday cake at the booth during scheduled times. The company began in 1848 in Chicago as Richmond & Co. Joy Morton, whose father was J. Sterling Morton, the Secretary of Agriculture under President Grover Cleveland, acquired a major interest in the company and renamed it Joy Morton & Co. In 1910, it was once again

renamed, this time to Morton Salt Co. The company in 1911 began incorporating magnesium carbonate, an anti-caking agent, into salt, leading to the creation of the Morton Umbrella Girl and the slogan, “When It Rains It Pours ® .” The logo appeared in 1914 on packages of table salt and in a series of Good Housekeeping magazine advertisements. Over the years, the Umbrella Girl has undergone several makeovers to modernize her look. Morton launched iodized salt in

1924 to help prevent the development

of goiter, a major health problem at the time. In the 1960s, the company pioneered the concept of using salt and potassium chloride mixtures for sodium reduction, and it continues to research that area today. In 2007, the company introduced Salt Balance Salt Blend reduced-sodium product that has 20% less sodium but delivers 100% salt taste. Morton Salt, www. mortonsalt.com, Booth 2423

Chocolate’s popularity grows

Seeking information about Americans’ chocolate-consuming habits, Barry Callebaut asked people to reveal such information as their brand loyalty and if they have tried premium chocolate. The company in January spoke with approximately 1,000 people per country in the United States and fi ve European countries. It learned that Americans are more likely to consume chocolate at work and on the go than Europeans. It also reported that Americans pay attention to name brands, with 59% of those questioned stating that they choose a particular chocolate because they like the brand.

More than half (53%) of the U.S. consumers questioned have tried single-origin chocolates. This number has increased from 42% in 2006. Barry Callebaut said that organic and fair trade chocolate is also growing in popularity. To meet the demand for origin chocolate, the company recently launched six new country origins chocolates, four new regional origins chocolates, fi ve new origins cocoa powders, and 10 new limited edition country origins chocolates.

Mushrooming ingredients

For manufacturers looking to include mushrooms as toppings on sandwiches and pizza, as fi llings, or in pasta dishes, sauces, spreads, and dips, a new line of sautéed, ready-to-use mushrooms are available in a number of cuts and varieties to suit your needs. They are seasoned with a blend of garlic, salt, and pepper and are sautéed without the use of hydrogenated oils. A proprietary

process allows the mushrooms to go

through a freeze/thaw cycle without destroying their cell structure. This helps to maintain a fl avor and texture very close to fresh mushrooms. Since these mushrooms are packed in a quick-thaw frozen pouch and are essentially ready-to-use, there is no prep labor required.

Flavor enhances sweetness

A fl avor solution is available to manufacturers who want to improve mouthfeel and heighten taste impact in reduced-sugar, low-brix beverages. This ingredient, SymLife Sweet ® , is part of the Get Active™ category of the Taste for Life ® branding platform. It enhances the sweetness of sugars, sugar alcohols, and sweeteners. The ingredient, which does

not contain artifi cial sweeteners, requires a carbohydrate to function, which results in interactions with sweetener receptors on the tongue that stimulate sweet sensations. It can be used at low levels in a variety of beverage applications where sugar is present. SymLife Sweet comes in two versions: regular and low-pH stable. Taste for Life is a series of

ingredients and fl avor concepts that fall under three categories: Get Active, which includes ingredients

for use in functional foods; Lighten Up™, which includes fl avors for use in low-sugar, low-salt, and low-fat applications; and Be Natural™, a range of natural fl avors. Symrise, www.symrise.com, Booth 463
