Color options in an age of instagramability

22 Aug 2018 --- The trend for natural colors is part of a wider shift in consumer awareness about health and wellbeing and a desire for cleaner and safer food products. People now have access to more information than ever before and, as a result of demand from consumers and pressure from health interest groups, the natural ingredients space has been growing steadily for several years now.

The launch of an EDTA replacer

26 Jul 2018 --- Naturex launched a new natural solution for food preservation. Called XtraBlend RN, it was unveiled as part of the company's Clean & Clear Label theme, with natural colors, fruit powders, vegetable purees and oat flour also in the spotlight. Manufacturers today are seeking natural alternatives to ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) in order to ensure their products are compatible with the trend for clean labels. Catherine Bayard, Category Manager for Naturex, said: “In light of the trend for clean labels, it has become clear that a rethink on EDTA is now needed. XtraBlend RN provides the perfect plant-based solution to this dilemma, delivering similar oxidation management to EDTA but with a clean and clear label.”

The Launch of an Innovative Natural Preservative System

20 Jul 2017 --- Naturex has developed two natural and taste-free antimicrobial ingredients for the prevention of spoilage in meat products: Cleanatis M1, a patent-pending combination of rosemary and citrus extract formulated to help inhibit the growth of Listeria; Cleanatis M2, a combination of rosemary, acerola cherry and buffered vinegar that helps inhibit Salmonella growth. The test results demonstrate that it is now possible reconcile naturalness and effective shelf life management to create natural antimicrobials for meat products that do not impair flavor or appearance. This means that, at long last, meat processors can adopt natural antimicrobials in the knowledge that consumer safety is assured and product quality maintained. Furthermore, they can now ride the clean label trend and ensure their products are in tune with today’s shopper preferences.
