Corbion Purac has introduced a clean label preservative that can be listed as ‘fermented sugar’ on ingredient panels.

Verdad Powder F80 is part of a range of fermentation-based ingredients and was developed in response to customer demand for a powdered version of its Verdad F range, the company says.

The ingredient, which is fermented from sugar cane and then spray dried, can be used in a range of ready-to-eat applications, including sauces, salads and breads. It is intended to preserve freshness and flavour, improving and maintaining the sensory and physical attributes of products along their entire shelf life.

The company says it also responds to consumer demand for authentic, natural ingredients.

“Consumers are increasingly concerned about the ingredients in their food and regularly check product labels,”​ said Ivo Van der Linden, category manager preservation at Corbion Purac.

“With the demand for pure and authentic food growing, the food industry is faced with the challenge to find natural ingredients that can deliver on food quality and integrity without compromising on taste or shelf life.”

The powdered ingredient gives manufacturers more flexibility in applications, the company said.
