With an ever increasing consumer demand for poultry, processors are looking for innovative solutions to improve the yield, quality, shelf life and safety of their products in this highly competitive market.

WTI offers a variety of functional products to meet their needs.


Quality

Marinade retention, tenderness and flavor are essential attributes of poultry products.

WTI's TenderIn line is an all-natural alternative to phosphates that improves the marinade retention, tenderness and flavor of poultry while promoting a clean label. Made from fruit juice concentrates and other natural flavors, WTI's TenderIn line is available in both liquid and powder form.

WTI's FlavorIn line, a liquid product made from fruit juice concentrates and vinegar, enhances the natural flavor of poultry while providing an all-natural clean label alternative.

Our IONAL line of functional ingredients, are granular, water-soluble blends of buffered sodium citrate or buffered potassium citrate, which stabilizes the flavor of fresh poultry while significantly reducing purge loss. Due to its superior ionic strength, IONAL also substantially increases a product's water holding capability.

Our MYOSOL line of liquid phosphates is a highly water-soluble alternative to sodium that enhances the tenderness and natural flavor of fresh poultry. With instant functionality in the muscles, MYOSOL can significantly enhance the water-holding capability of poultry.

Our NatureIn line, made from vinegar and variations incorporating fruit juice concentrates, improves the organoleptic properties of fresh poultry. Recognized as all-natural by USDA, the NatureIn line allows processors to market a clean label to customers and consumers.


Shelf life

Our IONAL line of functional ingredients, are granular, water-soluble blends of buffered sodium citrate or buffered potassium citrate. WTI's IONAL line can increase shelf life of products by inhibiting the growth of spoilage bacteria. WTI can assist customers in selecting the IONAL ingredient that best meets your target shelf life. Reduced sodium versions of IONAL are also available.

Our all-natural NatureIn line, made of vinegar and variations incorporating fruit juice concentrates, increases shelf life of poultry products. Recognized as all natural by the USDA, NatureIn allows processors to market a clean label to customers and consumers. We can assist customers in selecting the NatureIn line ingredient that best meets your target shelf life. Reduced sodium versions of the NatureIn line are also available.

MARINAL ProTek, a granular blend of organic salts, extends the shelf life of poultry product.


Yield

In an effort to maximize margins, processors of poultry products are seeking innovative ways to increase their yields.

Due to its' superior ionic strength, almost twice the ionic strength of salt, WTI"s IONAL line – water soluble blends of buffered sodium citrate or buffered potassium citrate – achieves greater marinade pickup and less purge in the package.

The MYOSOL product line is designed to help maintain color and boost water holding capacity of processed meat systems, while improving overall quality and yield. MYOSOL brand phosphates are highly-soluble, saturated potassium phosphate solutions that enhance the functionality of marinades and poultry products.

TenderIn is ideal for processors seeking an all-natural ingredient to increase marinade retention while enhancing product firmness, tenderness and flavor.


Food Safety

The pathogen Listeria monocytogenes thrives in a wide-range of environments, such as those found in food service establishments.

Our IONAL, MARINAL and NatureIn lines inhibit the growth of L. monocytogenes in poultry products to help achieve Alternative 2 status.

The pathogenic bacteria Clostridium perfringens is the third most common cause of foodborne illness in the United States. Even well cooked meats can promote germination of C. perfringens spores if prepared too far in advance of consumption, since the pathogen forms spores that can withstand cooking temperatures.

Challenge studies demonstrated that IONAL and IONAL Plus, made from buffered sodium citrate and buffered sodium citrate supplemented with sodium diacetate, respectively, assist in inhibiting the growth of C. perfringens in poultry products, in addition to improving yields, reducing purge loss and extending shelf life.
