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
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
“Flavor™”. 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”.
