YBL introduces NatralTech(1) products for the meat & chicken industry

CT (Clean Technology) thinking for Clean Labels with advanced bonded-moisture system technology and accurate utilization of optimally extracted “actinidin” from selected kiwifruit using the latest developments in the process technology gives you that consumer expectation of “remove the additives, please”.

By utilizing the latest and most advanced Kiwifruit extract, YBL has developed a range of premixes that are scientifically formulated powders for moisture enhancing, tenderizing and processing various meats without phosphates (i.e., without the additive numbers 339, 340, 341, 450, 451, & 452).  These premixes can be used in injection, massager or soaking systems to extend the meat to accepted industry extension standards.

The primary tenderization ingredient is kiwi fruit extract powder (see further information below).  All variations employ an advanced stabilization system—all premix types work equally as well and are formulated to allow you the preference of not only extension but your “clean label” ingredient declaration. 


Please advise us your intended usage & requirements and we will formulate and advise the usage to give you the best results.



  1. No additive numbers – Clean Label
  2. No phosphate
  3. Consistent tenderness – quick results
  4. Scientifically formulated proven optimized natural system 
  5. Clean flavour – no metallic notes from phosphates
  6. Advanced water binding technology – yield retention
  7. Easy to use – simple quick dissolution premix



Raw kiwi fruit has long been used by chefs as a tenderising agent usually by finely chopping and spreading it directly onto the meat or by including it in marinades. The disadvantage of using the kiwi fruit in this way is that it is a very powerful source of enzyme (actinidin) and it is easy to use too much which results in meat with a slimy, poor texture and unappetising appearance.

Kiwi fruit extract powder is a natural product prepared from high-grade kiwi fruit. The unique and innovative extraction procedure ensures the protease enzyme “actinidin” is available in high consistent levels.  Thus the low and optimal usage of the enzyme via a premix application assures the ideally suited product for use either in the kitchen or in a commercial meat processing plant at a cost-effective rate.
