Nielsen-Massey Vanillas to Unveil Pure Lemon Paste, a Time-Saving, Premium Flavor Product at Summer Fancy Food Show

WAUKEGAN, Ill., June 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Booth Number 1559 -- Nielsen-Massey Vanillas today announced it will introduce Pure Lemon Paste at the 2018 Summer Fancy Food Show. Made with Nielsen-Massey's Pure Lemon Extract, Pure Lemon Paste contains the natural essence of the highest quality California lemons and provides a convenient way to add a layer of sweet, bright, citrus flavor to many summer and fall recipes, without the need to juice or zest.

"For years, chefs have told us how much they love our vanilla paste because it saves them time in the kitchen while delivering the quality and care they expect from Nielsen-Massey," said Kirk Trofholz, Chief Executive Officer. "Our new Pure Lemon Paste is crafted with the same strict quality standards and works as a delicious finisher to elevate a variety of dishes."

Earlier this year, Nielsen-Massey released No Sugar Added versions of its Madagascar Bourbon and Pure Vanilla Extracts as well as four new Organic Pure Flavor Extracts, including Almond, Lemon, Orange and Peppermint. All these products, including Pure Lemon Paste, are all-natural, allergen-free, GMO-free and certified Kosher and Gluten-Free.

Nielsen-Massey's full product line will be showcased at the Summer Fancy Food Show, the largest specialty food industry trade event in North America, from June 30 - July 2, 2018, in New York City. Visitors will get their first taste of Pure Lemon Paste when they visit the company at Booth 1559.

Pure Lemon Paste will be available for purchase in 4- and 18-ounce bottles in summer 2018. For more information and to purchase new products, please visit
