Simplify the Label
Kalsec expands expeller-pressed spice, herb extracts as consumers seek simpler labels
Responding to consumer demand for simpler ingredients, Kalsec has expanded its line of expeller-pressed spice and herb extracts. Kalsec® expeller-pressed extracts are made with a patented, carefully designed process intended to capture the true essence of spices and herbs.
“The Kalsec technology is quite sophisticated, but the concept of expeller pressing dates back to early times,” says Kalsec CEO George Todd.
Todd says the method involves mechanical pressing of the spices and herbs and requires no organic solvents in the extraction process. Unique, consumer-friendly “artisan” style labeling, such as “expeller-pressed celery,” may be possible with these Kalsec extracts.
The Kalsec expeller-pressed product line now includes anise, capsicum, celery, chipotle, coriander, cumin, dill, fennel, jalapeno, mace and paprika. In addition to being organic suitable and non-GMO, these products are acceptable under the Whole Foods Market standards, have excellent microbial stability, and come in a convenient liquid form.
Kalsec expeller-pressed extracts are manufactured at the company’s Denver City, Tex., facility.
