Fruit/Juice Drinks

Fruit juice and juice-based drinks have increasingly been promoted on a health platform. Consumption of these products has been encouraged as an important part of any diet leading to good health. In the quest for longevity and enhanced quality of life, people are consuming greater quantities of vitamins, minerals, and various other nutrients than ever before.

For the beverage formulator, incorporating these components into fruit juices or fruit drinks can be a bit of a challenge. Fortunately, CP Kelco manufactures ingredients that enable the beverage manufacturer to incorporate more components consumers desire, without impacting product flavor or texture.

CP Kelco products serve many functions for juice drinks, including thickening, suspension and stabilization. Hydrocolloids enhance body and mouthfeel in low calorie versions without impacting the flavor of the beverage. When using less than 100% juice, hydrocolloids can build back the body to a full-juice mouthfeel.

CP Kelco ingredients are derived from nature-based, renewable raw materials, and we strive to provide these products with minimal processing or modification. Therefore, most products will support a ‘nature-based’ label claim, and many will support an ‘organic’ label claim.

Whether it’s suspending botanicals and minerals, stabilizing protein in fruit smoothies, or creating refreshing low calorie drinks, CP Kelco offers a portfolio of stabilizers and texturizers to suit the needs of the fruit drink manufacturer.
