A growing Hispanic population is influencing U.S. cuisine and creating demand for spicier, more authentic Latin foods. Mizkan Americas’ Border Foods line of chiles can help manufacturers turn up the heat in Hispanic-inspired products and provide an authentic taste adventure. Mizkan products—including tomatillo, green chile, green jalapeño and red jalapeño—are available in diced, puréed, frozen and IQF forms. Mizkan chile products are easy to use and can be applied to almost any production scenario, says Barbara Zatto, director of culinary and Mizkan sales manager-West, Food Ingredients. She notes that the chiles can be roasted, frozen and retorted in the processing plant. In manufacturing, they can be used fresh, baked or frozen; or used in the kettle-cooking process.
