Satoshi Endo, President and CEO of Moringa Nutritional Foods, Inc. and maker of Silken Soy Purée says, “We’ve seen an uptick in plant-based foods in both retail and restaurant offerings. Because of its versatility and variety of uses, foodservice professionals can bridge the gap and meet their customers’ needs with Silken Soy Purée.”

This pantry ingredient for professional kitchens is shelf stable and processed aseptically for foodservice and industrial markets. Silken Soy Purée helps chefs meet the increasing demand for innovative plant-based foods. With an appearance similar to heavy cream and a pH between 5.8 to 6.4, it is a versatile ingredient for a variety of applications.
