Corbion offers industry-leading expertise in fermentation and preservation solutions for a wide variety of food products. For more than 80 years, we’ve been preserving the freshness and quality of meat and bakery products using innovative, biobased solutions, just as we do today in the chilled foods segment as well.
Fermentation is a natural process that’s been used effectively for centuries to create and preserve a variety of foods, and it continues to prove its worth in the modern global food industry. It not only works to protect food products from Listeria and other harmful pathogens, but can also be used to enhance flavor and improve texture.
Consumers are more label-conscious than ever in their search for ingredients they know and trust. Because Corbion’s portfolio of fermentation-based preservation solutions is naturally derived, it aligns with today’s stringent labeling requirements and consumer demands. Products from our Verdad® portfolio of ferments can appear on labels as simple, understandable ingredients such as cultured sugar, vinegar, sea salt, celery powder or pea protein. In many cases, they are as familiar as the contents of consumers’ own kitchen cupboards.
Our vinegars are proven to keep food safe by suppressing the growth of pathogens and spoilage bacteria. A rich, natural source of acetic acid, vinegar can inhibit this growth for more than 100 days. We offer both liquid and powder solutions to support your specific formulation needs.
The Verdad® family of fermented/cultured sugar ingredients brings a truly unique blend of label-friendliness, safety, and extended shelf life to meat products, creating maximum consumer appeal.
For top-shelf, multifunctional protection, our Opti.Form® portfolio of sodium and potassium lactate and (di)acetate blends provides unequaled Listeria control and while also improving yield, purge and texture.
Our fermented ingredients are proven mold inhibitors in baked products, too. Naturally derived, Verdad® MP100 is a proprietary combination of vinegar and natural flavor that prevents mold growth as effectively as calcium propionate without impacting taste or adding complexity to the product’s label.
Taste is all-important in chilled foods, soups, and dips, but so is safety. And for many consumers, so is having an understandable ingredient label. Corbion’s portfolio includes naturally derived shelf-life extenders for refrigerated foods that are highly effective against pathogens, versatile in application, multifunctional in use, and easy to understand.
