Food flavoring & fragrances
Fossil fuel and palm oil use causes deforestation, biodiversity loss, pollution and contributes to climate change
The increase of global population and living standards is driving up demand for consumer products. At the same time, these consumers request more sustainable and local products without any negative environmental impact. This has created a demand for biobased, sustainable products such as ‘free-from butters’, ‘fully biobased laundry detergents’ and many more.
Food ingredient suppliers depend on antimicrobials and other processing and formulation ingredients to provide the healthy, convenient, and tasty food products that these consumers increasingly desire. However, sourcing of these raw materials is often problematic, both in terms of economics and sustainability.
Consumers' preference when shopping
SensiCraft® 4, SensiCraft® 5 & SensiCraft® 6
The production of esters, ethers, aldehydes, and other important derivatives offering strong sensory effects to the consumer, depend on fatty acids as key raw materials.
These fatty acids have a cheesy, waxy odor, ideal to mimic cheesy, buttery, or nutty flavors. They can also act as antimicrobials, each with their individual performance and their potential synergies.
Our product line consists of SensiCraft® 4 (butyric acid), SensiCraft® 5 (valeric acid), SensiCraft® 6 (caproic acid), SensiCraft® 7 (heptanoic acid) and SensiCraft® 8 (caprylic acid), all with a purity of more than 99%, which are intermediates for high purity esters, ethers, aldehydes and alcohols, derived from renewable materials.
