Why Balchem Savory Solutions?
No matter what type or how many savory entrees appear on your menu or in the aisles of your grocery store, we have an ingredient solution to help improve it. We’ve created extremely versatile products that can be used for a wide variety of savory food options. We also have an experienced technical team that can help you create great tasting, on-trend concepts designed specifically for your target market. We pride ourselves on superior customer responsiveness and making the experience of doing business with us pleasant, easy and productive.
Due to the wide variety of foods that fall under the “savory” category, we use an assortment of different technologies such as inclusions, acidulants, encapsulated salts, and creamer systems. We are proud to be an industry leader known for integrating science into the food industry for over six decades. Listed below are a few specific ways we accomplish this.
Balchem’s lipid-based inclusions are designed to impart any sensory experience your food product requires. These multi-component, custom designed “delivery systems” protect and deliver flavor, aroma, color, texture, and nutrition to a food system.
Encapsulated acidulants are used to control pH, develop acidic flavor profiles and increase production in savory foods. This technology can be used as an alternative to traditional fermentation methods, making the process safer and more efficient.
Our encapsulated products have excellent handling characteristics in production environments yielding a significant reduction in clumping, dusting and strong odors. We provide three specialty product lines including BakeShure®, ConfecShure® and MeatShure®. These products are specifically designed to provide tangible improvements in finished product quality and shelf life by controlling undesirable chemical interactions in food.

End-use applications include hot chocolates, cappuccinos, chai teas, smoothies, nutritional beverages, meal replacement products, prepared meals, side dishes, soups, sauces and more.
