Wixon Introduces Wix-Fresh Reduced Sodium System for Healthier Meat at AMI
27 April 2012 ---Wixon, a manufacturer of seasonings, flavors, and technologies for the food, beverage, and meat industry, is showcasing its new, proprietary Wix-Fresh Reduced Sodium System (RSS) in the form of healthy snack bites and other meat products at the 2012 AMI Expo, booth #3114.
Wixon’s Protein Group has specifically designed RSS for meat and poultry. The flavor modifier can be customized to any meat species or application, including rubs, marinades, seasonings, and injection systems. RSS positively impacts flavor without compromising functionality and generates up to 50% reduction in sodium.
All of the AMI menu items feature the new Wix-Fresh RSS system for reduced sodium without compromised flavor. Other Wixon technologies featured at this year’s event include Wix-Fresh OatMax and Wix-Fresh Umami (MSG substitute). OatMax increases moisture retention, shelf-life, and overall savory notes, while reducing the warmed-over flavor often found in pre-cooked meats. Umami enhances natural flavors and savory notes.
Wixon’s on-trend and healthy, reduced sodium meat offerings include:
· Petite Marinara & Romano Cheese Meatball
· Petite Teriyaki Chicken Meatball
· Petite Kogi Meatball
· Pizza Snack Stick
· Turkey Canadian Bacon
· Jalapeño Wiener
· Breakfast Snack Stick
· Festiva Sausage
· Breakfast Sausage
