SIAL Canada is the largest food innovation trade show in North America. Each year, new products are featured and judged for their novelty. ICYMI, here were this year’s winners that highlight health and sustainability trends.
Frozen Superfood Tea – by Millennia Tea
This product is a raw organic tea made from camelia sinesis leaves. Instead of drying the tea, the leaves are first picked, washed and flash frozen to preserve nutrients. The frozen tea cubes can then be added to smoothies and recipes.
Yumgo Plant-based, Vegan Egg Substitutes – by Alternative Kitchen
These allergen-free powdered egg substitutes are a 1:1 vegan replacement for chicken whole eggs, egg whites and egg yolks. Available in a resealable package, the powder can be used in sweet and savoury recipes for foodservice applications.
Cold-pressed Cocktail Mixers – by La Presserie
From Blood Marys to Mojitos and Strawberry Daiquiris, these frozen alcohol-free cocktail mixers are made using cold-pressed ingredients. Each bottle makes two cocktails.
Alumishape Custom Shaped Aluminum Bottles – by Kingston Aluminum Technology Inc
Aluminum is used for sustainable packaging. While most plastics can only be recycled twice, aluminum can be recycled repeatedly back into aluminum bottles. These unique beverage bottles are created with a blow molding machine, are 3D printed and require 30% less aluminum than a typical aluminum bottle or can.
Congratulations to all of the finalists and winners!
