Corbion says that it is ahead of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) deadline of removing all partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs) from food products by June 2018. The company targeted January 2017 for providing non-PHO replacements for its entire portfolio, including emulsifiers, mixes and bases, and has now announced that it has hit its target. Corbion has discontinued the use of PHOs and now offers a complete portfolio of drop-in non-PHO solutions with full functionality."By offering the complete portfolio now, Corbion helps customers make the transition smoothly and easily," said Jim Robertson, global product manager, emulsifiers. "Our customers can provide the eating experience and quality consumers expect, along with the cleaner labels they want."Robertson said Corbion's proactive investment in non-PHO solutions allows customers to position their companies as market leaders while making food "cleaner, safer, simpler and tastier.""As an example, when we converted to the Ensemble emulsifier solutions, bakers quickly realized they could maintain the flavor and texture of their goods without PHOs - and without sacrificing quality, handling or shelf life," Robertson said. "The results are delicious."
