What Is Clean Label

How do you feel when you look at the ingredients in a packaged chocolate cupcake and see that propylene glycol is listed as an ingredient? How about when you see butylated hydroxyanisole on a box of cereal? Did you know that it’s the same ingredient that’s used in jet fuel?

If you are like most educated consumers and food manufacturers, you are part of the crowd that is seeking alternatives to chemically laden food products like the ones mentioned above. Congratulations – you are a part of the clean label food movement! Your demands for quality and transparency in food are forcing all food producers to get creative with what they offer to the public.

As a trusted supplier of soup base to the food industry

We believe it is our responsibility to anticipate the needs of our customers as the food industry continues to transition to clean label awareness.

Our initial response is the introduction of Cook’s Delight® Simply Soup Bases™ and Cook’s Delight® Supreme Soup Bases, clean label product lines that are focused on blending simple ingredients into versatile bases for soups and broths that produce great taste in your menu and product creations.
