Wixon will showcase “good for you” gluten-free, organic, functional, and nutritional mixes at PLMA’s Store Brands Reality Trade Show, Nov. 17-18, at the Rosemont Convention Center in Illinois. The company will also feature its packaging capabilities for dry mixes and other products. Visitors to Wixon’s booth will be served samples of its Nutritional Ancient Grain Bar and Nutritional Peach Greek Yogurt Smoothie.
As demand for health and wellness products continues to increase, Wixon offers a number of mixes, enhanced by proprietary flavor modifier technologies, to meet the needs of nutrition-seeking consumers. Mag-nifique Sweet Lift creates a synergistic effect with sugar that enhances the perceived sweetness of the Nutritional Ancient Grain Bar without added sugar and calories. The bar also contains Wixon’s reduced sodium technology, Mag-nifique RSS. Mag-nifique Sour-Away reduces the perception of sourness in the Nutritional Peach Greek Yogurt Smoothie without affecting pH, and Mag-nifique Astringency Away reduces the perception of astringency.
Packaged gluten-free soup mixes will be on display at PLMA, including:
• Gluten-Free Classic Chicken Noodle Soup, a familiar taste featuring sweet corn, onion, carrot, peas, celery, turmeric, and chicken.
