Clean Label Potassium Sorbate Replacement!
May 2017

Not only are the trends of Organic and Clean Label not going anywhere, but their footprints continue to deepen within the food industry. Non-GMO is another topic that has made headlines in recent years and goes hand-in-hand with today's ever-growing themes of label transparency. According to the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Law (NBFD), packaging in the United States must soon indicate whether the food itself or ingredients within the food have been genetically modified or bioengineered in any way. There is not a set timeline on when this update will officially take effect, but food distributors that sell their products within the United States may want to begin adjusting their packaging to comply with this newest labelling standard.


At J&K Ingredients, we encourage all of our customers to specify their Non-GMO requirements and we strive to meet each and every one of these needs. This is why many of our products have been designed to allow for modification based on each customer's individual specifications. Because of this, we are largely able to cater to companies who require Non-GMO ingredients within their products.


For over a century, J&K Ingredients has strived to achieve a level of success that comes from our  ability to create innovative products according to the needs of the industry as well as the consumers. While the Non-GMO and Clean Label movements are relatively new, it has become a priority for use to provide as many natural ingredients as we can. For a complete list of our Clean Label ingredients, refer to our Product Guide or contact our sales team for additional questions on any of our products. We are happy to work with you in accommodating your needs. 

Start fresh. Start clean. Start Non-GMO.
Organic Is Here To Stay

The idea that organic was going to be a fad has been set straight. Not only is organic here to stay, but the category has been growing steadily over the past few years, posting new records in 2015. It turns out that organic is the fastest growing sector of the US food industry accounting for more than $39 billion of the total organic sales in 2015. Further, it is projected that the category will continue to grow at least another 14% through 2018. 


Much like the trend for Clean Label, consumers have largely found a dedication to the newest trend of Organic products. This places a large responsibility on the bakeries themselves to become Organic Certified. So far, the supply has not kept up with demand, so now is the time to tap into the needs of the consumer. This shift in consumer interest has created new opportunity for those in the baking industry. For this reason, as the demand for Organic grows, so does our list of certified products.


J&K Ingredients is dedicated to developing a line of Organic Products. Currently, this line consists of Organic Bred-Mate FL and Organic Verdi 51, our organic dough conditioner. With their certification comes the guarantee that these products were developed without the use of genetic engineering, chemical processing or materials like pesticides or fertilizers. Consumers find comfort in the idea that they’re fully aware of what is in their food, and the organic certification provides this assurance. This is why we have made this trend a priority at J&K.

Clean Label? We've Got It Covered. 

The trend of clean label did not stop with the removal of ADA. As our sales of Verdi 51, one of our clean label dough conditioners, continue to grow and our technicians remain busy implementing it in the field, we are consistently developing advanced formulas to satisfy the constantly changing needs of consumers. Our clean label product line now consists of over twenty formulas designed to successfully replace not only ADA but also ingredients such as SSL and DATEM. J&K's unique ability to offer such an advanced portfolio of clean label solutions for dough conditioning, mold inhibition, and shelf life extension is what sets us apart from the rest.

The health-conscious wave of consumers is pushing bakeries and other food companies to the point of total transparency. While simply adding terms like "organic" and "non-GMO" would seem to serve as a solution to satisfy the masses, the internet has opened up every opportunity for anyone to figure out exactly what is in their food. This is why we take the issue so seriously and have developed our Verdi line of clean label ingredients, allowing our customers to proudly and honestly label their food the right way. Some of our Verdi ingredients include things like dough conditioners, flavors, shelf-life extenders, as well as tortilla, cake and bread bases. 

In addition to our Verdi products, we have always been ahead of the curve with our Bred-Mate line of natural mold inhibitors that has become a staple in the industry throughout the world. In other words, we've got it covered. 

For more information on how you can get your hands on a completely clean label, email our sales team at or call us at 973-340-8700.
