In the competitive dairy alternatives market, taste and texture are what drive loyalty – and consumers do not want to compromise. They expect the products they purchase to meet their taste and texture standards, which are based on their familiarity with dairy.
For formulators, competing with dairy milk means attaining the suspension of insoluble ingredients for added nutrition, viscosity, mouthfeel and stabilization for visual appeal. KELCOGEL® HA-B Gellan Gum is considered the gold standard for suspension of insoluble ingredients. It can be used in combination with other texturants to tailor mouthfeel.
Now CP Kelco has a new, strong value proposition for achieving stability and viscosity in dairy alternative beverages: Try KELCOGEL® HA-B Gellan Gum together with NUTRAVA® Citrus Fiber for body, viscosity and mouthfeel. NUTRAVA® Citrus Fiber addresses the need for nature-based, clean label-friendly and recognizable ingredients. it can be listed as simply citrus fiber on the label. Upcycled from citrus peels, an abundant byproduct of the juice industry, NUTRAVA® Citrus Fiber supports dietary fiber intake and increased viscosity with a light, refreshing mouthfeel. It may also provide cost savings for dairy alternative beverage manufacturers who typically add gums for mouthfeel, such as locust bean gum that is in short supply.
