An ingredient designed to combat listeria in meat will feature among the range of ingredients Corbion aims to showcase at July's IFT Annual Meeting & Food Expo in Chicago.

The company will display two solutions for the meat industry at the US trade show which runs from 16-19 July.

Verdad Avanta and OptiForm are the two products meat processors will be most interested in. The latter is what Corbion calls an “industry-leading​” solution which ensures listeria control for meat and poultry products. Verdad Avanta is a multifunctional biobased ingredient that can improve quality, taste and product shelf-life in processed meat products.

Ruud Peerbooms, senior vice-president of food at Corbion, said technical experts would be “happy​” to discuss any concerns customers might have about using Corbion ingredients in their meat products.

Customers turn to Corbion for innovative solutions and for expertise – they trust us to answer formulation and other questions,​” said Peerbooms in a press statement. “Our team works hand-in-hand with customers to make their products cleaner, safer, fresher and tastier.​”

The vice-president of food also said the IFT trade show was the “perfect place to meet customers who are hungry for information​”.

Visitors to Corbion’s booth at IFT (Booth 1,221) will be able to sample turkey, ham and sausages that have been treated with the functional ingredients.
