SK Food International Conducts Pilot Run of Crimson Red Corn

Fargo , ND – SK Food International has recently completed a pilot run of its Crimson Red Corn resulting in new product applications including cereal loops and puffs, as well as extruded snack products.

SK Food partnered with globally-recognized, Northern Crops Institute's technical services team, for the production of various cereal and snack products made from SK Food's Crimson Red Corn.

“We knew our Crimson Red Corn presented many options for various product applications, so it was exciting to see the different finished products and end result,” notes Jennifer Tesch, SK Food International Marketing Director.

One unique quality of this corn is a colored alerone. Other corn varieties' color is in the seed coat, which causes the corn to lose its color during processing. However, SK Food International's Crimson Red Corn has a clear seed coat, with the color in the alerone, allowing the red color to remain in tact through processing.

Since the color remains in tact through the production process, there isn't a need to add colorants or artificial additives in order to achieve a visually appealing finished product. The result is a clean product label, listing Crimson Red Corn as the single ingredient. “We were very pleased with how the red color of the corn came through in the finished products. Part of our goal in conducting this pilot run was to provide customers with conceptual ideas for some of the many finished products that can be made using our Crimson Red Corn.”


During the pilot run, SK Food produced extruded snacks and cereals, however other product applications include, but are not limited to all types of extruded snacks, puffed and popped products, tortillas, cereals, personal care products, flours and meals. Available packaging sizes include 50 LB bags, bulk 2,000 LB totes and bulk truckload.

SK Food International supplies a full line of Premium Quality Ingredients including Identity Preserved: Certified Organic and Conventional Non-GMO dry edible beans, grains, seeds, soybeans, brans/germs/fibers, flours/meals, vinegars, sweeteners, rice products, split/dehulled soybeans and instant powders/flakes.
