September 29, 2017Ingredients, News

Tilley Chemical is pleased to offer ADM Soy Proteins.

So, how can soy proteins work for you? They are vegetable proteins that are a great alternative to meat and dairy products, while bringing even more versatility to the table. Soy proteins are low in fat, lactose free, vegetarian and have zero cholesterol.

While the benefits of using soy proteins are vast, the applications for use is even greater.

Soy proteins can be ingredients in beef patties, chicken patties, chili, meatballs, chicken nuggets, cereal, nutritional bars and many, many more.

They serve as a meat extending, low-fat ingredient, a moisture retention agent, and can improve texture and viscosity.

ADM product names for these items are Soy Flour, Bakers Soy, Arcon, TVP and ProFam. Soy Flour and Bakers Soy are minimally processed so flours used in baking applications. Arcon and TVP are functional soy concentrates with a minimum of 65% soy protein. They are best used in meat and poultry applications. ProFam are isolated soy proteins with a minimum of 90% protein content. ProFam is used primarily to increase nutritional value. TVP are de-fatted soy flours.

May 8, 2017Ingredients, News

Spring has sprung and Summer is just around the corner, this means cookouts, picnics and great food with friends and family.

CreaFill products offer CreaFibe, an insoluble dietary fiber choice, and CreaSplend, which has both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber content for foods.  While adding healthy dietary fiber to foods is a great start, CreaFill products go way beyond that.

CreaFibe is the most versatile dietary fiber on the market. It can be used to keep baked goods moist, keep chips from breaking under the weight of a hearty dip, and it will even reduce caloric content in foods. CreaFibe is offered in grades ranging from powder to longer fibers depending on the application. The CreaFibe family of fibers offers something for every application with fibers including oat, wheat, cellulose and bamboo.

CreaSplend is a supremely healthy option that offers a natural, non-gmo, Kosher and Halal certified ingredient which has the consistency of flour, but is gluten free! Much like CreaFibe, CreaSplend works wonders in food. CreaSplend is ideal for creamy desserts, prepared meats and filled pastas. CreaSplend will enhance flavor and mouthfeel and build viscosity.

These two items are truly remarkable and necessary products across all types of food. When customers clamor for healthy, tasty options, CreaFibe and CreaSplend will do the trick.

Solona from ICL: Low Sodium, Big Taste

August 15, 2016Ingredients, News

There is no mistaking it, salt is a critical ingredient in many favorite foods often serving as a preservative or flavor enhancer, but with an abundance of research on the negative health impact of too much sodium, it is time to look for an alternative. Solona sea salt from ICL Food Specialties is a naturally occurring mineral that can effectively replace salt in food without sacrificing flavor or quality. Solona has 1.7 grams of sodium in every 100 grams, compared to the 39 grams per 100 of salt. The health benefits are evident, but the flavor benefits need to be tasted to believe. Solona has applications in the dairy, beverage and meat and poultry industries.

It is the sheer versatility of Solona that makes it a must-have ingredient across all culinary applications.

When it comes to baked goods, Solona effectively reduces the sodium in breads and desserts, and will not effect the cooking process in any way. Solona is available in the granulation your process requires, so it will never be a hindrance to the mixing process. Solona is fully soluble in liquid milk products and milk, and when it comes to cheese, formulation assistance is available to optimize the end product texture and melt.

Salty, sometimes overly salty, meats are a staple at summer cookouts, and Solona can make those flavors all the more enjoyable while reducing the sodium by 50% and delivering an equivalent yield in processed meats. Solona also can play in role in washing down delectable meals with refreshing beverages as it is fully soluble in liquids. Try Solona in tomato juice for a true treat!

Solona is sustainably harvested using solar energy to extract naturally low-sodium minerals from the dense waters of the Dead Sea, and then they are then moved to special evaporation pond where they are washed, screen dried and sized. The end result is Solona.

Please reach out to your sales rep for more information on this incredible product.

Solona is the food ingredient you have been searching for!
