Better Dips and Spreads With AFS Products!

Dips and spreads make snack time more enjoyable. They are a fun way to add flavor and texture to breads, chips and vegetables. Manufactured using either a cold make-up or cooking process, the final products can be sold refrigerated, frozen or at ambient temperatures. Each type of manufacturing process and storage requirement presents unique challenges that can affect the appearance, mouth-feel and palatability of the final product. AFS offers an array of ingredient systems that help enhance flavor impact, control moisture, stabilize emulsions and improve the freeze-thaw stability and shelf-life of dips and spreads.

Cold Make-Up

  • Actoloid® CCS-2 is a stabilizer and emulsifier system for cold make-up, cream cheese dips. The final product is a spread-able dip that is creamy, smooth and stable without syneresis.
  • SeasonRite® Herb Butter Base T#5 is a custom designed flavor and stabilizer system for compound butter that is mixed, then frozen. It is designed to provide emulsion stability and control moisture from IQF herbs. After thawing, the final product has a smooth texture and an enhanced butter flavor.


Shelf-Life Extenders

  • Freshmate S/B-2 and Fresh ‘O systems are preservative systems that are easily dispersed in cold water. They help to extend shelf-life and prevent flavor and color degradation in the finished product. These systems are an excellent choice for hummus and avocado based dips.

Flavor and Seasonings

  • Chef-Ready® seasonings and flavor boosters feature ingredient systems that combine function and flavor. They are easy-to-use and available in wide variety of flavor profiles, including Blue Cheese, Spinach Artichoke, Sweet and Sour and Avocado Ranch Dip, or one can be customized for you.

AFS provides customized solutions that enhance the quality of your products and provide cost savings. Our ingredient systems are dry bases that are easy to use and store and are excellent choices to enhance the presentation and flavor of dips and spreads. Make AFS your technical partner for innovative food ingredient solutions!
