Comfort foods mean different things to different people. The thing that remains the same is the feeling and familiarity they bring when consumed. People eat comfort foods for a variety of reasons and occasions. The season can also influence eating comfort food—such as consuming hot chicken noodle soup on a cold snowy day.
Developing comfort foods that are easy-to-prepare, taste great and convenient is not always simple. These are items people expect to have certain qualities, and standards may be higher compared to when consumers try a food that is new or less commonly consumed.
AFS manufactures a variety of ingredient systems that can be used to develop comfort foods that are cost effective, process efficient, stable and most of all taste great!
All ingredients can be formulated to meet all ingredient, allergen and cost parameters. Please contact AFS Technical Services to select the right ingredient for your comfort food.
