Functional ingredients for injection, tumbling and dipping of poultry, meat and fish.

Vaessen-Schoemaker has been known for over 70 years for its functional concepts for injection and tumbling or dipping of poultry, red meat and fish. We specialize in creating value for you, for your specific process: whether it is making cooked meat more tasty, frozen meat more convenient to use, or for combating listeria in salmon. We combine ingredient knowledge, process knowledge and the right product.

All these functional ingredients add value to your products, in terms of yield, texture, shelf-life, taste, appearance or tenderness. The extension of chicken breast fillets by 10 to 20% results in products that are juicier and more tender, and therefore more appreciated by consumers. Our functional ingredients are mostly added to water to create a brine, which can be used in a poultry injector or a tumbler, for example. Naturally, all concepts can be geared towards the needs, demands and processes of the processing industry. The concepts offer a host of options in terms of extension, declaration and application (injection/tumbling/dipping). Understanding the further processing, such as cooking, we create optimal solutions for your application.

Taste from within, a brand new concept!

Chicken meat has a healthy image and is a key ingredient in many dishes, but when it is consumed cold, the flavour of chicken could be much stronger.

Consumers experience the meat’s texture and visually attractiveness, but it lacks the distinct taste of cooked chicken meat. Our solutions bring back the authentic chicken taste to cold meat.

It is therefore ideal for salad meat. With our ‘Taste from within’ concept we add a cooking profile (boiled, roasted or grilled) to a prepared product, restoring or enhancing the taste of the product. Adding value to your product and creating a customer preference.
