We Know Our Stuff

Our technical sales team knows functional ingredients tremendously well, and here's a case study to prove it:


Case Study:


Summary: A salad dressing company requests a clean label gum for a natural salad dressing product to help stabilize a precipitating dressing system.

Customer Objective:  Increase the cheese flavor intensity in a low pH system, while maintaining suspension and stability.

Our Approach: Ask a bunch of questions and carefully listen to the customer’s objective, formula, and processing in order to accurately discern what the problem truly is.

Solution: This is not an issue of gum, but rather an issue caused by high protein content derived from an increased cheese usage in an acidified environment. We suggest a clean label cheese concentrate and provide an accurate usage ratethis provides the desired bold, aged cheese flavor without affecting pH.

Outcome: We sent a clean label cheese concentrate sample to lab and pricing / MOQ / lead times to the purchasing department. The cheese concentrate solved the customer’s problem, the formula has been fully scaled-up, and is now available at retail.
