New protein boosts yield, fiber in processed meats

New protein boosts yield, fiber in processed meats
Ulrick & Short's new Complex F improves texture while also enhancing in-process moisture retention and yield for sausages, burgers and other foodservice items.

An innovative new protein from leading British owned clean label starch specialist, Ulrick & Short Ltd can increase manufacturing yield while retaining moisture in all types of chopped and reformed meats.
Complex F is the latest addition to the non-GM ingredient specialist’s Complex range, and comes hot on the heels of several new products targeting the meat sector last year, bringing even more versatility to an already impressive range of glazes, emulsifiers, binders and fat reducers.
Complex F improves texture while also enhancing in-process moisture retention and ensuring increased yield for cooked meat products such as sausages, burgers and other foodservice items – especially those served from heated counters which face added challenges from drying out.
As well as foodservice, this new protein will be of particular benefit to manufacturers of ready meals and snacks including meatballs and chicken nuggets, not to mention delicatessen offerings such as scotch eggs, sausage rolls and meat-filled pasties - plus soya-based products including leading brand meat alternatives. Complex F can also help with label simplification, giving manufacturers the opportunity to consolidate ingredient lists. 
Ulrick & Short Director Adrian Short explained: “Ulrick & Short already has an unrivalled reputation for improving functionality and cutting costs for a wide range of processed meat – and meat alternative - manufacturers in the UK and beyond. We’re very proud of Complex F, our latest innovative ingredient that helps to increase product yield without compromise on moisture retention and, ultimately, taste. It’s the perfect complement to our growing range of cost-cutting, texture and taste-enhancing ingredients for meat processors worldwide.”
Ulrick & Short supplies household name food manufacturers across the world with clean label non-GM ingredients, innovating across a diverse range of food industry sectors including bakery, meat, dairy, soups and sauces. The company has a team of dedicated sector specialists and food technologists based in Yorkshire and works hand in hand with customers to maximize value from product development.
