Citric Acid

The Citric Part of Life

Many drinks, jams, cakes and sweets are characterised by the fresh taste of citric acid. Its appealing tart character – typical of carbonated and fruit-flavoured soft drinks – awakens the senses and teases the palate. In fact, citric acid offers a multitude of benefits through the many products we consume or use in our daily life.

Novel low-calorie bulk sweeteners - ERYLITE®

With the change in consumer’s attitude towards sugar the food and beverage industry is looking for new, healthy and functional sweetening options. Most importantly, a natural origin is desirable and the taste must be flawless. Many alternatives to sugar exist but very few can take on all the different aspects
of sugar in food and drinks. Only one delivers on all attributes considering taste, natural status and technological properties that promote healthy and desirable sweetness: ERYLITE®.

Safe and functional by nature

Lactic acid has been with mankind from the beginning. Not only is it part of the human metabolism, it also occurs naturally in a range of fermented foods that have been produced for thousands of years. Nowadays, lactic acid and its salts, the lactates, are used in a wide range of applications and industries, including but not limited to food, drinks, personal care and cleaning. Thus lactic acid is no longer just a minor, incidental component of certain traditional foods, it is intentionally produced for the benefit of peoples, markets and the environment.

Xanthan Gum

A hydrocolloid with outstanding properties

Xanthan gum is a natural polysaccharide. It was discovered in the late fifties in the research laboratories of the US Department of Agriculture during research work into the industrial applications of microbial biopolymers. Extensive research revealed that the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris, found on
cabbage plants, produces a high molecular weight polysaccharide, which protects the bacterium from heat or other microorganisms. This polysaccharide, called xanthan gum, proved to have technically and economically outstanding properties. The industrial importance of xanthan gum is based upon its exceptional qualities as a rheology control agent in aqueous systems and as a stabiliser for emulsions, suspensions and foams.
