Sauces and Dressings – Quality Starts with Quality Ingredients

A great sauce can be the deciding factor as to whether a dish will be a success or failure. Either Hollandaise on fish or Béarnaise on Filet Mignon, the sauce is the finishing touch. Salad dressing is no different. Most people eat a salad for the dressing! Sauces and dressings start with a simple recipe, but producing it on a large scale requires proper formulation of ingredients and stabilizers.

At TLC, our ingredients provide you with highest quality compounds so each sauce and dressing have the correct viscosity so the sauces look attractive and remain fresh until it is consumed and the dressing consistently pours from its bottle without clumping. Picking one of the many polysaccharides available to increase viscosity is a daunting task. To make things even more complex, there are different properties between the gums and the starches on the market, so the functions of the polysaccharide must be considered.

TLC Ingredients understands that synergy exists between compounds and we are here to provide you with the proper assistance every step of the way.
