Ingredients specialist Essentia Protein Solutions has entered the seafood market with the launch of a new range of clean label fish pastes and powders for savory applications.
Essentia’s new ProBase seafood range is made from 100 per cent natural seafood raw materials including, but not limited to cod, mussel, plaice and lobster flavours.
The range covers both stock bases and fish meat extracts, and products are targeted at premium savoury solutions.
They are designed to enhance the real fish taste for a host of applications – stocks, stock cubes, bouillons, soups, sauces and ready meals, savoury mixes and blends, canned products, fish cakes, sticks and paté, fishballs, salads, dressings and snacks.
Supplied as pastes and spray-dried powders, the entire range is free from additives and can go directly into any application as a clean label ingredient. Tom Cooke, Essentia’s regional director UK & Ireland, said: “These fish bases can be used as the basic ingredient in all kinds of fish recipes, and provide a fantastic full-bodied flavour profile in the finished product.
“We are proud to introduce our new seafood range to the UK market. It’s a logical extension to our comprehensive range of meat products, which are recognised for enhancing product quality and reducing formulation costs.”
With over 40 years’ experience, Essentia Protein Solutions (formerly BHJ Ingredients UK) is the UK leader in meat-based proteins for the food industry.
