Ohly Launches Non-GMO Cayenne Pepper Sauce Powder


01 Feb 2017 --- Ohly says it’s the first to offer a new non-GMO compliant version of Cayenne pepper sauce powder demonstrating its deep understanding of the increasing demands of the non-GMO market.

Dr. Mariët van der Werf, global innovation director, tells FoodIngredientsFirst: “Ohly has an in depth understanding of current market trends and emerging consumer demands for food ingredients for their new products, in combination with Ohly’s close relations with raw material suppliers this makes us proud to be the first to offer ProDry Cayenne NGMOP to the market.”

“Key drivers behind this ProDry product is indeed the increasing demand for non-GMO project compliant products in combination with the market trend for hot and spicy foods, such as Cayenne hot-sauce flavor.” 

Ohly’s ProDry range combines things that are hard to bring together in a ready-to-use seasoning – a full flavor profile with the benefits of a free-flowing dry powder. 

Following on from previous success stories, the new product will allow customers to differentiate their cayenne flavored products with the “character and appeal that customers are looking for”, according to Ohly, part of the ABF Ingredients group.

The free flowing powder is ideal for carefully calibrating flavor levels from subtle to impactful in a varied range of products including dry mixes, sauces, topical applications, seasoning blends, coatings and glazes.

And it adds heat and spice to savory food systems and delivers all the unique flavor of Cayenne pepper sauce. Aside from the non-GMO label it is also Halal & Kosher.

“Key markets are seasonings and dry mixes for topical applications like snacks and for convenience foods,” adds Dr. van der Werf.

The dry powder is convenient to handle during processing and ensures consistency in food preparation, according to Jay Wickeham from Ohly, and powders have approximately six times longer shelf life than liquids, making them an ideal alternative.

“Our ProDry range continues to grow as customers appreciate the authentic flavor in a very easy to process form. Our Cayenne Pepper Sauce Powder NGMOP brings even greater diversity and choice for manufacturers using international flavor accents in their products while giving credit to consumer preferences for non-genetically modified ingredients,” he says.
