Galactic introduces Flavor™, an extension of its clean labelling range of solutions
To meet the growing demand of customers, Galactic is proud to announce the recent extension of its clean labelling solutions for meat, poultry, seafood, sauces, dressings and ready-to-eat preparations. Consumers are paying more and more attention to what’s written on the labels of the food products and it becomes a major element in their purchasing decision. By associating natural ingredients with fresh and healthy diet, the clean labeling trend is supported by the overall desire to eat healthier and the food industry has to adapt to this change. To help its customer tackle this new challenge, Galactic is extending its existing range of label-friendly solutions, Galimax Flavor ™ K-65 and KV-65 , with three new references based on buffered vinegars: Galimax Flavor™ V-50, VK-50 and V-100 powder. All these products are made by fermentation of sugars and have mild tastes that do not impact the sensory profile of finished products and even enhance it in many cases, hence the name “ Flavo r ™ ”. They also display excellent antimicrobial properties and as such help guaranteeing food safety. Moreover, Galimax Flavor™ V-50 and VK-50 bring another healthy benefit by being perfectly suited for low sodium recipes. “This new range has clearly been thought and designed to offer our customers a panel of the best available solutions in the market” says Jean-Christophe Bogaert, Sales, Marketing and Business Development Director. He added “ many of our developments have demonstrated the ability of our solutions to improve the shelf life of finished products with no detrimental effect on pH and taste”. About Galactic : Since 1994 Galactic has become one of the world leaders in biotechnology serving the food, feed, personal & health care, and industrial markets. Based on its valuable experience in the fermentation of lactic acid and in the production of its derivatives, Galactic continuously develops sustainable, innovative and health-friendly solutions in the field of food safety, nutrition and green chemistry. With its headquarters and an Innovation Campus in Belgium, production facilities and front-labs in the United States (Milwaukee), China (Bengbu) and Europe (Escanaffles, Brussels), and additional sales offices in Germany (Düsseldorf), Italy (Milan), Japan (Tokyo) and Brazil (Curitiba), Galactic employs about 370 people worldwide and is active in more than 65 countries.

KEY INTERVIEW: Opportunities for Lactic Acid Fermentation in Food Safety and Nutrition
Lactic acid is already present within our bodies but it can also be adapted for a whole host of other uses, particularly in the food sector. Galactic has 20 years of experience in this field and it now supplies lactic acid solutions to 65 countries across five continents. FoodIngredientsFirst speaks to sales, marketing and business development director, Jean-Christophe Bogaert, to find out more: Galactic was created in 1994, so in many respects it is a fairly young company, but its achievements are wide and it has a rapid pace for innovation. It can now offer lactic acid solutions for a large range of application sectors such as the polymers industry and pharmaceuticals. But food represents around 75% of its business. “In food we work across a lot of different segments,” explains Bogaert. “Meat and seafood is a big area where lactic acid derivatives are primarily used as preservative agents to inhibit the growth of bacteria . Basically it is a guarantee of food safety but it also improves shelf-life.” Key food segments: Bakery is another key area for Galactic, where lactic acid has preservative properties. “We have ProDough Adagio, which is effectively a version of our ProMeat Adagio. With this product you can replace phosphates because it will mimic what yeast does,” he explains. “It is much cheaper than yeast and more controllable. Yeast is a living material so it is not so constant and there can be a lot of variations in the result.” The company has also discovered that ProDough is a taste enhancer, so it promotes the taste of things such as butter in baked products. Lactates are also used in the dairy sector for food supplementation and to increase the calcium content of milk. “It’s really useful in our work with soy milk for example, as we can increase the calcium levels of soy milk to reach the same levels of that which you would find in cow’s milk,” he says. Within dairy, Galactic has a new product called ProDairy Adagio, which is primarily used within soft cheese applications. “It is a Crystal Lactic Acid powder which mimics what bacteria does in food products – it is progressive and it can be controlled by both dosages and temperature.” The benefits of this are that it can help reduce processing times and it also allows customers to adjust the texture of cheeses such as Mozzarella, so that it can be made harder if necessary for grating purposes. “It results in a more stable product so during its shelf-life on say, a pizza, it won’t lose on taste, texture or meltability.” In beverages, lactates are used for mineral fortification, and sports and energy drinks is a big growth segment for the company. “Interestingly the biggest user of calcium lactate in the world is Coca-Cola for its Minute Maid drink, which is supplemented with calcium,” he notes. Meanwhile in confectionery, lactic acid buffered is used to prevent the inversion of sugar. New segments within food include sauces and dressings, Bogaert explains. “Really we have spent the last two years changing our market approach from being a lactic acid producer into a ‘natural solutions provider’,” he says. “This has opened up new segments for us.” In order to do this the company set up a research and development (R&D) center in Brussels one and a half years ago. “Our teams all work together with clients to adjust our existing products to the needs of our customer.” R&D is a big area for the company and it invests around 5% of its turnover back into this area. In order to streamline this focus on innovation, Galactic has identified four key areas of growth potential for its lactic acid concepts. Food trends: “We have identified four main trends in the food industry which are the main pillars where we have a role to play or can design new products,” he states. The first of these is food safety, using lactic acid as a natural preservative. “There is an increasing need to improve food safety,” he says. “It is very important topic for us.” The second pillar is health improvements, where Galactic works in two ways. “One area is to allow our customers to increase the level of ‘good’ applications such as to enrich calcium in their products. It’s about adding ingredients that offer a positive effect on health.” The other area of health for Galactic is by designing solutions that help to reduce ‘unhealthy’ ingredients, such as sodium, such as in salt-rich products like processed meat. “We have solutions that enable our clients to reduce the sodium without losing any of the taste, and also, without losing any of the benefits you get from salt as a preservative – therefore we maintain food safety.” It also has solutions to reduce the use of sodium aluminium phosphate (SALP), which is now banned in Europe, he notes. As a third area of focus, the company is looking at cost efficiency. “We don’t sell cheaper than our competitors necessarily but we do work on developing more efficient solutions, such as being able to offer reduced dosages. It means it is a win-win situation for us and our customers if products can be used at a lower dosage.” Finally, and particularly for mature markets such as North America and Japan, clean label is a big opportunity for the company. “Our products are natural and increasingly our customers are asking for help in creating products which are more natural and without e-numbers,” he says. Innovating within this fast-moving sector means that Galactic has its work cut out. But Bogaert is confident that a focus on the four key pillars Galactic has outlined for lactic acid potential will drive this company further down the road to success.

GALACTIC, SAPICI, & LIBERTY CHEMICALS jointly develop new formulations of water-based paints
Synergy for Sustainability in Wood Coating, GALACTIC, SAPICI, and LIBERTY CHEMICALS jointly develop new formulations of water-based paints for wood coating that combine strong environmental sustainability and high technical characteristics. Final products for wood surfaces treatment without toxic emissions and performance aligned to the traditional coalescent-based formulations. GALACTIC, SAPICI, and LIBERTY CHEMICALS announce the initial results of their cooperation aimed at developing new formulations for wood coating characterized by high environmental compatibility. The new proposals enhance the production process sustainability and the final products life-cycle by an improved application duration. The performances of the new paints for wood coating result to be equal or better compared to those of traditional products. The cooperation among GALACTIC, SAPICI, and LIBERTY CHEMICALS has been defined to provide measurable contributions to the reduction of the solvents’ emissions that occur during the use of traditional products, specifically for coating applications; furthermore, it goes in the direction of simplifying the industry’s compliance to the increasingly more strict international regulations for the use of solvents. The synergy has allowed to leverage the three companies’ respective competencies and experience to develop and characterize high-range polyurethane coating for wood surfaces treatment. The cooperation originated when SAPICI – developer and manufacturer of waterborne polyurethane dispersions, PUD – committed to develop a new coalescent-free product line for coating with features and performances comparable to traditional products. SAPICI contacted LIBERTY CHEMICALS, a company with extensive experience and recognized capabilities in the development of innovative solutions including solvents based on molecules of natural origin coming from carbohydrates fermentation processes. The on-going relations between LIBERTY CHEMICALS and GALACTIC, Belgian company active in the development and production of lactic acid derivatives through fermentation, added to the project complementary competencies. The starting point was the coalescent-free PUD resin SAPICI Bluepur 2937; the challenge was to identify – for the formulation of the final product that is used by the applicators – a sustainable and non-glycolic coalescent originated from biological and renewable sources able to combine environmental aspects with high technical properties, characteristics and durability for the final paint. LIBERTY CHEMICALS has proved to be an ideal partner thanks the results achieved over the years in the development of solvents and solvent-blends from carbohydrates fermentation, specialties already used in various industrial fields such as the AstroBio NS. The participation in the project of GALACTIC has allowed including in these mixtures the lactic-acid esters of the Galaster series that enable an effective filming effect for water-based products, specifically with the Galaster EHL 95. The R&D cooperation among the three companies has allowed achieving outstanding results even at low concentrations of green-coalescent, offering relevant benefits in particular to the do-it-yourself applications by roller or brush. The high efficiency of these products has allowed reaching finishing values of 90 gloss, underlying the excellent coalescing power of the formulations. A further element of sustainability is in the lower consumption of raw materials. The new formulations are already available to the customers of the three companies.

Galactic recently launched Galimax ProEggTM to extend shelf life of liquid eggs
Liquid whole egg is made by homogenisation and pasteurisation of broken whole eggs, which extends the shelf life when stored chilled or frozen. However, low pasteurization temperature, limited by the low thermostability of egg proteins, as well as disruptions in the cold chain make liquid eggs highly susceptible to microbial spoilage. Galactic recently launched Galimax ProEgg TM , a unique, scientifically proven natural ingredient designed to improve liquid eggs safety and extend their shelf life by up to 25%. Galimax ProEgg TM is a powder blend containing natural antimicrobial agents made by fermentation. It has been specially designed to protect liquid egg products (whole liquid eggs, egg yolks and egg whites) against pathogens and Gram-positive spoilage bacteria. Galimax ProEgg TM does not impact the sensory attributes of the finished products. For more information: contact our sales department sales@lactic.com

GALACTIC welcomes the EU's authorisation of lactic acid for the decontamination of bovine carcasses
Galactic welcomes the recent news that the EU has authorised the use of lactic acid for the decontamination of bovine carcasses as from 25th February 2013. This follows a positive opinion published by EFSA in 2011 supporting such use. The measure provides a new means by which contamination by the most critical pathogens found in foodborne diseases can be reduced . Nonetheless, while the objective of this legislation (Commission Regulation 101/2013) is to lessen microbiological contamination on bovine carcasses, it should not be considered as a substitution for already existing good hygienic slaughtering practices. The relevant legislation, detailing the precise application modalities, can be found at the following link: http://eur-lex.europa.eu
