Savory-Edge Enhancer for Beef, a patented technology, delivers juicy, meaty and rare notes to any beef application, according to Kraft Food Ingredients Corp., Memphis, Tenn. The allergen-free, natural flavor belongs to the Flavors of Cooking line from K.F.I.C.

The flavor has the ability to offset warmed-over beef flavor and "livery-grassy" notes found in lower grades of beef. The patented flavor is based on a multi-phase reaction process of oil, water, air and other enablers.

"As the local, organic and natural trend continues to increase in the U.S., so will the trend of grass-fed cattle," said Andrew Bosch, senior creative flavorist for K.F.I.C. "Grass-fed cattle often have ‘grassy’ off-notes versus prime, corn-fed beef. Our patented product allows our customers to use grass-fed beef without sacrificing the authentic savory beef flavor of prime cuts."

Savory-Edge technology is similar to culinary flavor layering, Mr. Bosch added.

"Its continuous reaction process and air-rich environment allows for authentic flavor replication," he said. "Flavors are more intense, multi-dimensional, distinct and do not meld together."

Savory-Edge Enhancer for Beef may be used as a marinade with any cuts of beef and with frozen beef entrees and slow-cooked beef applications. The flavor is certified kosher and available in dry powder.
