FOOD & NUTRITION CLEAN LABEL INGREDIENTS SOLUTIONS

In recent years, "eating clean" and the clean label movement have become some of the major trends in the food industry. Brenntag considers “clean label” ingredients as those that are:

  • Not synthetically produced
  • Not highly processed
  • Are easy to pronounce
  • Provide a more label friendly ingredient declaration to the consumer

It's not just fat, sugar and calories people are looking at askance as they try to improve their diets. They are also paying more attention to the ingredients in their food, from the types of flavorings and colorings used to the types of sweeteners added. Consumer demand for natural, organic or otherwise clean ingredients has led a number of food companies to alter their ingredient lists and look for new ways to formulate food products so they still have a pleasant taste and texture without unwanted ingredients.

LOOKING FOR MORE INFORMATION?

One of the challenges clean labels present to food manufacturers is finding natural and clean ingredients to replace the original ones used in foods. Many food ingredients are chosen because they enhance the taste or texture of a food or because they help it last longer. Among the ingredients taken out by food producers are monosodium glutamate (MSG), artificial colors, preservatives and artificial flavors.
