Ditch the weighting agents: A cost effective solution for delivering flavors and actives

10/10/13 2:00 pm to 10/10/14 2:00 pm EDT
Contact: Adam Thomas

Traditional weighting agents used in the delivery of oil soluble flavors and actives in beverages have several potential disadvantages to consumers and beverage marketers. Some, particularly brominated vegetable oil (BVO), may be viewed as a health concern by consumers while others may have regulatory limits on their usage and cause sedimentation in beverages. Traditional weighting agents can also be time consuming to use in process and expensive, contributing as much as 50% to the formulation cost of the emulsion.

In this FREE webinar, learn how to reduce costs and energy use by enabling high oil load emulsions, eliminating the need for weighting agents like BVO. Traditional starches and other gums cannot deliver a high oil load of 4:1, whereas the use of PURITY GUM® Ultra emulsifiers result in highly concentrated emulsions that are more cost effective.

 By attending this webinar, you will gain an understanding of how to:

  • Remove weighting agents
  • Cost effectively formulate an emulsion
  • Deliver difficult actives/nutrients/flavors that are stable
