23 Mar 2015 --- Flavorings and colorings company Wild has developed new toppings, added ingredients and coatings which turn ice cream into enchanting desserts. These chocolate sauces, dessert coatings and colorful fruit coatings give today’s consumers what they want: natural ingredients, innovative ice cream creations and premium-quality enjoyment.

Current figures mean that the upcoming ice cream season is something to look forward to. With sales of 622 million liters, the German ice cream market in 2014 gained 1% over the previous year. Germany is thus the highest-volume market for ice cream, ahead of Russia (490 million liters / +2.1%) and Great Britain (396 million liters / +1.7%). With statistics like these, in the year ahead it will once again be a challenge to make people even more excited about ice cream and draw more consumers to the freezer section of the supermarket. This is why Wild has developed new concepts with which manufacturers can turn simple kinds of ice cream into special desserts to be enjoyed at home or while on the go. These preparations and flavor systems satisfy the current consumer demand for premium ice cream creations that are based on natural ingredients and feature the taste of other desserts.

The different nuances which ice cream lovers know and love when it comes to chocolate coatings are now available as toppings and add-ins: Wild has created different kinds of chocolate options, “milk chocolate,” “bittersweet” and “semi-sweet,” to literally give ice cream a special finishing touch in many new and versatile ways. No matter whether manufacturers select a topping, a ripple sauce or a liquid core in the ice cream, these different chocolate preparations create a multi-facetted selection of potential uses. For an even more extravagant touch, there is also “chocolate orange” featuring orange juice and “pears belle Helene” with real pear chunks for creating exquisite dessert highlights. 

All of the new chocolate sauces are based on genuine chocolate and precisely blended compositions of premium-quality cocoa. They have a rich chocolate flavor, can be combined in countless ways and transform simple kinds of ice cream into unusual high-quality desserts.

In addition to chocolate, Wild also offers different caramel preparations for toppings and fillings. Fruity duos such as “banana & burned caramel” or “pear & salted caramel” create a particularly harmonious flavor profile. Wild’s new caramel products are ideal for many delightfully surprising compositions.

Ice cream creations featuring the flavors of other desserts are very popular these days. So far, however, products of this nature have only been available in family-sized packaging and single-portion cups. Now WILD has created sophisticated coatings for popsicle products to reflect this trend. Appetizing popsicle options are available that feature new pH-neutral compounds, “panna cotta” and “biscuit,” which are an alternative to classic chocolate coatings or even double coatings. Particularly popular combinations include fruit as well, such as raspberry panna cotta or blueberry biscuit. The flavors and colors are based on natural flavors and coloring foodstuffs, and they satisfy the highest standards in terms of natural ingredients.

Last but not least, Wild offers popular products at an even higher quality. For years, colorful ice cream coatings have made eating ice cream a cheerful and fruity delight, and now coloring foodstuffs permit manufacturers to create formulations without E-numbers, which is something that more and more consumers want. In the past, there was only a limited range of colors available without E-numbers, whereas today, the use of spirulina alone opens up a broad spectrum of color options – from green to blue all the way to shades of magenta. When combined with other coloring foodstuffs, an entire rainbow of color nuances is possible. These ready-to-use compounds for colorful coatings offer everything today’s manufacturers need so they can create fruity popsicle products. They are color-stable in the acidic environment of the compound, feature high sensory quality and contain no E-numbers. Wild develops the fruity flavor based on each customer’s particular specifications and color preferences.

Start-up focus: Taking insect protein into America’s snacks pantries

19 Mar 2018 --- Most Westerners shudder at the prospect of eating insects, but attitudes towards them vary dramatically across the globe. In fact, around two billion people already eat bugs as part of their diet. As the global population continues to rise, more and more people are looking for insect protein as a sustainable food source. Not only do many insects, including crickets, contain all nine essential amino acids, this type of protein is also sustainable, especially in comparison to traditional meat sources. It takes one gallon of water to produce one pound of insect protein. Almost two thousand gallons of water, by contrast, are poured into every pound of beef that lands on a plate. US-based start-up Chirps Chips is on a mission to educate Western society on the benefits of insect protein in a corn snack.
