One of the more enjoyable things I experienced while visiting with the latest co-packer was a demo of one of the products they make. It's a hydrocolloid for thickening foods. It's not something I plan on using in my product, but it was cool to see it work and see the excitement of the food scientist while she talked about it. I have some to play with now, but will wait until I'm not dealing with my real job and what I guess is considered a "start-up." I am going to pull together another test batch this weekend.
While there is currently nothing that I have found that is what I am doing, I am convinced there is a market for it with the suggested retail price we will hit. There are many other high end condiments right at our price level. So that fills me with hope. I am hopefully only about a month out from having a product, and as soon as I do I will have it up on the website.
