There’s no doubt that the comminuted and formed meet sector has been given new life. Meat processors are embracing innovation and exploring opportunities to create flavorful, premium products made with simple, easy-to-understand ingredients.

Prune plum ingredients, which are a concentrated source of antioxidant phenolic compounds, can help improve these products by enhancing moisture and preventing warmed-over flavor. Because they also increase caramelization, they can also take the place of caramel coloring.
