Baltimore, MD (February 20th 2018) –Tulkoff Food Products, Inc, has removed high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) from all products under the Tulkoff and Seaside brands, replacing the ingredient with sugar. The Baltimore based condiment manufacturer describes the transition as listening to the demands of consumers and customers looking for products with simplified ingredients.
“We continually review our products and their ingredients to make sure they meet the evolving preferences of our customers and their consumers,” says Phil Tulkoff, President of Tulkoff Food Products. “We had an increasing customer demand for the removal of high fructose corn syrup in several of our branded products and received more co-pack and private label projects requesting cleaner labels. We not only removed the ingredient from the products we manufacture, but we literally removed it from the building,” says Tulkoff. “Since we will no longer have a use for the ingredient, we were able to clean out and utilize our HFCS tank for other manufacturing needs.”
The transition began on products manufactured after January 1st at both of Tulkoff’s facilities and impacts a total of 12 items for the brand. Products include a variety of cocktail sauces, all mayonnaise based products including: Creamy Horseradish Sauce, Spicy Chipotle Chili Aioli, Extra Bold Horseradish Sauce, and Crab Cake Base. The new packaging will feature a new NO HFCS logo.
