Instant Food

Instant food industry has developed rapidly in recent years. According to the statistics from World Instant Noodles Association (WINA), 100.1 billion packs of instant noodles were sold around the world in 2017. Thereinto, 38.97 billion packs were sold in China and Chinese annual consumption per capita is 28 packs, much higher than the world average-13.3 packs. There are mainly two factors which cause the rapid growth of instant food industry: lifestyle changes and income increases. Powder caramel color is one of the main ingredients in seasoning packets. It provides an appealing and appetizing color to noodle soup.

AIPU FOOD’s caramel color, hydrolyzed vegetable protein compound powder/liquid (HVP Compound), soy sauce powder and disodium succinate can be widely applied to instant foods including instant noodles, frozen foods, fast foods, bento, etc. Caramel color can provide an appealing and uniform color to the noodle soup. HVP Compound can enhance the rich flavor and salty taste of both soup and noodles. Disodium succinate can be mixed with HVP Compound, soy sauce powder and other seasoning agents to reach a variety of umami flavors. In frozen foods application, a low dosage of HVP Compound can offer rich taste to the stuffing and enhance the delicious flavor of natural ingredients.

For each product application, we suggest manufacturers to conduct pre-experiments before production. Customers can also inquire our service staff for more information on recommended dosage and application effect.
