Label-friendliness begins with solubility
To put an end to one of our most frequently asked questions: yes, Kemin’s products are soluble in water and fats. In fact, our range of label-friendly food solutions encompass different water-soluble products, as well as lipo-soluble products. Both are proof of how an alliance of separate ingredients can bring life to a potent solution, thanks to the power of emulsifiers.
Emulsifiers, substances designed to bring stability to the mix by increasing kinetic stability, allow us to disperse antioxidants and plant extracts in food systems in which they would normally not dissolve. Water- and liposoluble antioxidants can be combined into one product by adding these emulsifiers to the blend.
Emulsifiers that are more soluble in water will generally form oil-in-water emulsions, while those that are more soluble in oil will form water-in-oil emulsions. Furthermore, it allows to create synergistic combinations in which the ingredient combination outperforms each single ingredient.
Let’s take you along some of our synergistic combinations, shall we?
