Florida Food Products is proud to provide processed and cured meat manufacturers with clean label, functional alternatives to a variety of chemical additives, including sodium nitrite, sodium erythorbate, chemical antioxidants and phosphates. These powerful, plant derived ingredients provide unrivaled performance and protection. We use only nature’s finest ingredients, including celery and Swiss chard as meat-curing agents, acerola cherry as a cure accelerator and antioxidant. Additionally FFP offers optimized antioxidant systems consisting of rosemary, green tea and acerola cherry.  FFP’s game changing rice bran extract improves moisture retention and eating experience. We continue to drive innovation in the processed meat industry by offering the most consistent, high-quality all-natural ingredients.
