J.T.M. Introduces Clean Label Beef Taco Filling to K-12 Segment

HARRISON, OH – November 19, 2015 – J.T.M. Food Group has expanded their line of clean label products with a new Premium Beef Taco Filling. The new beef taco filling is allergen free, gluten free, and free of caramel color and cornstarch.


J.T.M.’s research and development team utilized innovative ingredients including isolated plum and citrus flour when developing the product. The isolated plum fiber is used in place of caramel color and the citrus flour helps enhance the flavor of the product and is commonly used in place of corn syrups and gum acai.


“There is a growing demand for cleaner label products in the school food service industry. And while some districts have the labor and ability to do a lot of scratch cooking, there are many districts that are looking to manufacturers for fully prepared solutions that carry a cleaner label. They need the added benefits of a fully prepared product to help them manage costs, address labor issues, and that help them meet the needs of the National School Lunch program. There are ways to do processed foods better, and we are committed to doing just that”, said Brian Hofmeier, J.T.M.’s Vice President of Education Sales.


School districts participating in the USDA Foods School Nutrition Program can choose to have their beef diverted to J.T.M. to be used in the Premium Beef Taco Filling or they can purchase it commercially. It comes packed frozen, in a 30-pound master case that contains six, five-pound boilable/steamable bags of taco filling. The product is CN labeled with each 3.26 ounce serving of the taco filling providing 2.0 M/MA and only 227 mg. of sodium.
