Helping Deliver a Clean Label Baking and Snack Oil

We helped our customer remove soy allergens from their oil products, quickly and efficiently. With our help, they were able to up their game by offering a premier non-GMO product with an allergen-free clean label.

A wide portfolio and deep expertise provided the answers

Our new customer, an oil manufacturer, wanted to make a switch from the soy lecithin antioxidant they’d been using. We were at the ready to deliver a clean label shelf-life solution as a replacement. By drawing upon our wide range of solutions in our broad portfolio and our expertise in finished bakery and snack products, we came up with a speedy solution to help them protect their oils used for bakery and snack products.

Proven solutions make clean...simple

Though switching to a clean label ingredient can be a complicated process, our R&D team was able to quickly identify one of our proven, off-the-shelf solutions to get them up and running with a quick turnaround. With our testing and quality control already in place, our customer was able to secure swift approval on their end, to respond to their customers’ requests for a cleaner label—and get to market quickly using our alternative shelf-life solution.

Our wide-ranging portfolio easily meets a variety of needs, since it offers different available claims at different price points, including everything from synthetic antioxidants to mid-level claims and premium shelf life solutions.

What I’m most proud of:

How we build relationships with our customers, sharing solutions and working together to make things happen. It’s gratifying to work for a company with the resources to offer a broad variety of solutions that help solve variety of challenges.

Responding to growing trends

Though a relatively small portion of people are actually allergic to soy, consumers can be wary of soy ingredients for a variety of reasons.

  • Soy is listed as one of the ‘Big 8’ allergens identified in the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA)
  • 22% of consumers are purchasing more free-from foods than they did a year ago1

 

In this case, we helped our customer remove a soy allergen for a new offering with a clean label. We have the portfolio and expertise to help customers respond to a variety of growing trends, such as allergen avoidance, clean labels, organic and more—while meeting economic and label demands at the same time.
