New Product Concepts / April 2016 / Store Brands 8 1 Takealong cup packaging Hickory Harvest Foods now offers takealong cup packaging for its nuts and snacks. The takealong cups offers consumers a single-serving resealable package that fits in most car cup holders. Each takealong cup is 5 to 8 oz. in size. Current products available include snack mixes (Shanghai Snack Mix, Sweet & Salty Mix, Zesty Party Mix and Cranberry Fitness); nuts (Honey Peanuts, Salted Peanuts and Hot & Spicy Peanuts); snacks (Salted Sunflower Kernels, Sesame Sticks and Mini Yogurt Pretzels); and candy (Double-Dipped Chocolate Peanuts, Gummi Worms and Gummi Bears). Organic salsas Red Gold introduced a line of organic salsas. The salsas are available in Medium, Mild, Hot and Black Bean & Corn varieties. They contain no added sugar and have less sodium than similar salsas. Expectorant and nasal decongestant Allergan plc and Perrigo Co. launched combi- nation guaifenesin 600mg and pseudoephed- rine HCl 60mg extended-release tablets. Said to be the generic equivalent to Mucinex D extended-release tablets, the medicine is an expectorant and nasal decongestant indicated to relieve chest congestion in combination with sinus congestion and pressure. Aloe waters LiDestri Food & Beverage now offers a line of ready-to-drink flavored aloe waters containing 15 percent aloe. Said to target the same beverage space as coconut water, aloe water is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and for the assist it gives in vitamin absorption, improved immunity and digestion. The aloe waters are available in two flavors: Mango and Tart Cherry. Global supply chain software NSF International said it added a proprietary intelligent compliance engine to the supply chain food safety and quality management software TraQtion, formerly called Aspirago. The software can proactively scan and interpret data and immediately alert clients when a supplier, product or site is out of compliance. TraQtion continually runs in the background to check on processes and send alerts, allowing prioritization of critical responses; automat- ically identifies in-spec and out-of-spec products through testing and inspections; and uses dashboards to provide a visual overview of the company's quality and compliance program. Rosemary and green tea extract Kemin now offers a rosemary and green tea extract to help prevent degradation and oxidation and protect color and flavor of fresh and frozen meats. The extract helps to delay oxidation while also offering retailers a "label friendly" ingredient. The ingredient allows retailers and manufacturers to purchase meat at optimal prices knowing it is protected from oxidation longer and helps to reduce waste and increase margins due to maintained price stability.
