Consumers love dairy products with great taste and texture, but they are especially attracted to dairy foods and drinks that also offer the benefits of added nutrition, in the form of these vitamins and minerals:
Calcium – Critical for bone health at all life stages, calcium is particularly important for children and teenagers, who are growing rapidly, and the elderly, who are prone to bone degeneration as they age.
Zinc – This essential mineral also offers bone health benefits, and contributes to healthy brain function, fertility, and DNA synthesis.
Magnesium – An increasingly popular addition to dairy products, magnesium is proven to boost protein and nucleic acid synthesis, bone growth, and energy metabolism, and it supports blood pressure regulation.
To meet the demand for nutritionally rich milks, including fermented milks, Corbion created the PURACAL® range of natural minerals. These lactate- and gluconate-based calcium fortification solutions are readily soluble and offer high bioavailability. They also have a neutral taste so they won't take away from the consumer's experience, even when mineral content is high.
PURACAL® QStable is specially developed for the calcium fortification of neutral pH beverages that contain proteins. For milk, soy milk, and other dairy alternatives, this solution allows manufacturers to achieve a high mineral content without compromising formulation stability or mouthfeel.
Our GLUCANOL®, PURAMEX®, and NUTRIVAN® vitamin and mineral premixes are well-suited to a variety of dairy applications, including yogurts and acidified dairy drinks, where high solubility is important to ensuring seamless processing. Corbion's portfolio includes solutions that make it easy to successfully fortify your products with calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, or potassium.
