Tides Trading offers a full range of ingredient solutions for the alcoholic beverage industry. Beer, cider, seltzer, mead and kombucha manufacturers make up a sizeable and growing portion of our customer base, and we have extensive knowledge of the various adjunct ingredients that work best in these products. In addition to clean label fruit ingredients, Tides also supplies other common additions including TTB approved flavor extracts and WONF blends, honey and other natural sweeteners, and a wide variety of dried ingredients including citrus peel, spices and botanicals.
Fruit Juices, Purees & Juice Concentrates
These products are globally sourced and are the clean label solutions for adding fruit to your finished product. Puree is 100% natural fruit that has been processed and passed through screens to eliminate seeds, skin and foreign material but leave the pulp, whereas NFC juice is filtered. Concentrates are 100% fruit with no additives – the filtered juice is heated under a vacuum to evaporate the water at a lower temperature in order to preserve the natural color and flavor attributes of the fruit.
Honey & Other Natural Sweeteners
Fermentation can’t happen without sugar, and Tides is a leading supplier of honey and other natural sweeteners such as agave nectar, caramel, invert syrup and cane sugar which are commonly used in everything from beer to kombucha. Varietal honey such as orange blossom and tupelo is also available.
Dry Ingredients & Botanicals
Citrus peel, hibiscus petals, tea leaves, coconut chips, spices & chocolate products are some well-known craft beer additions that we have available in a variety of different specifications and pack sizes.
Flavor Extracts & WONFs
Tidal Processing offers a large line of extract flavors and has a team in the lab that is happy to develop new and unique products upon request. These are 100% natural flavors made by enhancing a base of extracts and essences. They’re extremely consistent and deliver the natural flavor you expect, all while being very strong, cost-effective, and available in pack sizes as small as 1-liter.
Our 100% Juice WONFs are blends of juice concentrates and natural flavors designed to mimic the taste, color and concentration of clean label juice concentrate, but at a far reduced cost. Beyond the cost-savings, our WONFs are consistently available year-round regardless of the season. Switching from a clean label juice concentrate to our WONFs doesn’t require any reformulation at all.
