Wixon, a manufacturer of seasonings, flavors, and technologies for the food and beverage industry, will receive a BizTimes I.Q. (Innovation Quotient) award from BizTimes Media LLC for its Wix-Fresh Reduced Sodium System (RSS).
Wixon’s Protein Group specifically designed RSS for meat and poultry, which benefits flavor without compromising functionality and reduces sodium by up to 50%. The flavor modifier can be customized to any meat species or application, including rubs, marinades, seasonings and injection systems.
“Wixon is honored to receive this award for our innovative flavor technology, and we congratulate our Protein Group on this accomplishment,” said Peter Gottsacker, Wixon's president. “Created in response to demand from both health-conscious consumers and food producers, Wix-Fresh RSS allows our customers to formulate meat and poultry products that reduce high sodium content - without sacrificing flavor.”
The I.Q. Awards acknowledge southeastern Wisconsin businesses for their innovations in products and services. The winners will receive their awards at a ceremony on May 16 at the Potawatomi Bingo Casino in Milwaukee. The ceremony will take place during the business-to-business BizExpo.
