Best known for our Salt for Life® sea salts and Beyond Himalayan mineral salts, NuTek’s expanded portfolio now includes solutions in shelf life extension, flavor enhancement and texture.
Salt Solutions - NuTek Natural Ingredients has taken a simple approach to create great tasting salts with improved nutrition. NuTek uses sea salts from pristine ocean waters and mineral salts from ancient sea beds to make numerous pink and white salt options that help to achieve up to 75% less sodium and up to 75% more potassium in food recipes and formulations. Salt for Life® sea salts and mineral salts deliver a healthier balance of salts and minerals for today’s active and health conscience consumers.
Shelf-Life Solutions – Food products need preservatives to prevent mold and extend shelf life. Many of these preservatives are chemically derived, and consumers are demanding natural, clean label solutions to preserve shelf life in their foods. NuTek Natural Ingredients has leveraged age-old fermentation techniques and developed a natural shelf life extension solution, NuXtend™ that preserves foods naturally to extend shelf life and maintain texture and fresh taste. NuXtend™’s natural ingredients optimize product performance and enhance shelf life while improving sustainability and reducing food waste.
Flavor Solutions – Umami and kokumi, known as the fifth and sixth sense, triggers a sensation of deliciousness and richness in savory foods through flavor receptors in our mouth. Without using additional, expensive herbs and seasonings, NuTek Natural Ingredients has found a way to get that great umami and kokumi sensations in food through their new natural flavor solution – NuSavor™. Rich in flavor and taste notes, NuSavor™ can actually reduce the need to add MSG, I+G and hydrolyzed proteins by enhancing the flavors already present. Not only does that reduce cost, but it also helps keep your label clean and recipe simple.
Texture Solutions – Texture solutions are specially formulated to enhance mouthfeel, structure and stability throughout processing and shelf life. NuTek Natural Ingredients has developed a plant based solution – NuForm™. NuForm™ leverages naturally available compounds within the cell walls of plants, and it is an abundant source of fiber found in fruits and vegetables. When used in foods and health and beauty products, it helps to retain moisture; acts as a thickener, stabilizer and binder; and enhances mouthfeel of foods.
