MIDDLESEX, N.J. —The United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued a patent to Summit Hill Flavors for its grill flavor process technology that is designed to capture the taste and aroma of grilled meat and poultry. Summit Hill, Middlesex, has combined more than 20 years of meat, poultry and seafood flavor technology and the technology of heat processing vegetable oils and animal fats to create the Chef’s Grill flavor product line.
“This new technology allows us to offer the food industry the real flavors of grilling meat, poultry and seafood that are traditionally cooked in an outdoor, open-hearth cooking preparation,” said Dwight Grenawalt, vice-president and general manager of Summit Hill Flavors. “The industry challenge has always been to develop a grill flavor manufacturing process to deliver a grilled flavor with the taste and aroma that would be more pleasing to the end consumer.”
Jurgen Scheide, technology inventor and founder of Summit Hill Flavors, said, “This new technology will not only improve on controlling the manufacturing process, but also offers more flavor formulation flexibility compared to past traditional grill flavor processing methods.”
