Chicken stock made from laying hens.
Laying hens are not particularly suitable as meat for slaughter, as the meat is too lean and tough. Therefore, they are currently used as biofuel. And that's a shame, because they are excellent for making stock.
We take in as many retired laying hens as possible, so they are not simply disposed of as biofuel.
This results in a delicious chicken stock:
REDUCED Organic Chicken Stock is a delicate and well-balanced stock that can be used as a base in a wide range of dishes where the chicken flavor shouldn't be overpowering.
REDUCED Organic Chicken Stock, Roasted PRO offers the pure roasted taste of chicken, perfect for your sauces or dishes where a more intense flavor is desired.
Veal stock made from the bones of male calves.
In the dairy industry, only a few breeding bulls are needed to ensure the continued reproduction of dairy cattle. The remaining male calves are raised and used as beef cattle. We take in as many bones from these calves as possible, so they don't go to waste.
This results in a delicious veal stock:
REDUCED Organic Veal Stock is a pure animal-based stock with a clean and intense flavor of veal. It serves as a great base for your sauces, soups, and stews.
Vegetable stock made from sorted-out mushrooms and vegetables.
Strict requirements are set for the shape, color, and size of the produce that growers must meet in order to be sold. This results in the waste of good ingredients. We acquire vegetables and mushrooms from some of the country's leading suppliers of high-quality organic products. And there's plenty of it!
This results in a delicious vegetable stock:
REDUCED Organic Vegetable Stock is a fantastic all-purpose stock that can be used in both vegan and non-vegan dishes.
Shellfish stock made from invasive shore crabs.
Along the Danish coasts, 12 billion shore crabs are thriving, and their numbers are increasing every day. Many of them are invasive species that disrupt the marine environment for the natural population of fish and shellfish. They are considered pests, so when fishermen catch them in their nets, they are not allowed to throw the crabs back into the sea. Consequently, the shore crabs become waste when they are brought ashore.
This results in a delicious shellfish stock:
REDUCED Shellfish Stock boasts a deep seafood flavor, a dark and striking color, and an intense umami taste. A stock that's impossible to overlook.
If you're wondering why this stock isn't organic, it's because wild-caught animals and naturally growing plants cannot be certified as organic.
REDUCED Umami Sauce is the ultimate flavor enhancer in your kitchen.
At REDUCED, we have developed unique methods to extract optimal flavor from surplus ingredients in the food industry. Based on retired laying hens or sorted-out mushrooms, we have created two intense umami boosters for your dishes.
REDUCED Umami Sauce Chicken is a fermented flavor enhancer made from retired hens from Danish egg production, barley, and koji, which elevates any dish in the savory kitchenand adds complexity and a lingering aftertaste to the food.
REDUCED Umami Sauce Mushroom is its vegan counterpart with a natural and pure mushroom flavor - packed with umami. The perfect flavor enhancer for both vegan and non-vegan dishes.
We have a strong team of development specialists who work tirelessly in our food laboratory with this sole purpose. All our stocks and sauces are produced in our production facilities in Copenhagen and Northern Jutland.
We source our ingredients through close dialogue with the country's leading organic food producers who share our same interest: reducing the waste of good ingredients.
Once we are satisfied with a product, we test it alongside a range of our trusted customers to ensure that it's not just us who believe it's good. We believe that the path to less food waste lies in taste and craftsmanship.
