Wixon will showcase non-GMO, gluten-free, organic, and nutritional dry mixes and seasonings at the Private Label Manufacturers Association trade show, Nov. 16-17, at the Rosemont Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill. The company also will feature its packaging capabilities for other products. Visitors to Wixon’s booth, #F1425/1426, can try samples of its non-GMO Triple Chocolate Meal Replacement Shake.
“We are seeing consumers’ growing interest in choosing foods and beverages that support a healthy lifestyle and Wixon’s booth at the PLMA Show will showcase how we create gourmet dry mixes and seasonings that address their needs without sacrificing flavor,” says Wixon Consumer Products Divisional Leader Paul Whitaker. “Wixon’s three core levels of service ensure that our customers’ products meet expectations—from innovative concepts through formulation development to efficient production and professional packaging.”
Mag-nifique Sweet Advantage is an all-natural substitute that reduces sugar content and calories in the Non-GMO Triple Chocolate Meal Replacement Shake. At the same time, it retains sweetness with the ideal amount of cane sugar. A combination of cocoas creates a rich chocolate flavor, and just one serving of the shake contains 12g of protein, 6g of fiber and a shot of daily vitamins.
Additional packaged non-GMO dry mixes will be on display at PLMA, including:
• Non-GMO Salted Caramel Dip Mix, a sweet and lightly-salted caramel blend, to combine with cream cheese and milk.
• Non-GMO Peruvian-Style Quinoa Mix, a zesty side dish featuring ancho and aji amarillo chilies and sweet potato. The blend contains Peruvian-style spices, including cumin and allspice. Red pepper pieces and cilantro flakes provide colorful eye appeal.
Gluten-free soup mixes will include:
• Gluten-Free Classic Chicken Noodle Soup, a familiar taste featuring sweet corn, onion, carrot, peas, celery, turmeric, and chicken.
