Nexira launches plant-based texturiser range
At the upcoming FI Europe, Nexira will launch its new range of natural and efficient texturisers under the brand Naltive. One year ago, Nexira acquired Unipektin, a Swiss-based company specialising in the production of locust bean gum, guar specialties and tara gum. After teamwork between its technical experts and developers, Nexira presents Naltive, specially designed to match the market needs of formulators and consumers to create the perfect sensory experience for your dairy and plant-based applications, says the company.
The dairy sector shows no sign of slowing down, with consumers seeking better eating experience with products that offer the best combination of taste, texture, and nutrition. In addition, the plant-based alternatives are still rising, with consumers having a high level of expectations in terms of taste, texture, and sensory experience.
However, formulating appealing dairy and plant-based products with good taste, desirable and indulgent texture, and a stable shelf-life gets more challenging due to the highly functional sugar, fat and protein properties. Naltive offers three types of hydrocolloids with locust bean gum being its flagship ingredient, as well as tara gum and guar specialties.
Using only natural and physical processes, the large Naltive locust bean gum range is best-in-class, according to Neixira, as it provides specific technical benefits and multi-sensory experience in various challenging applications. The locust bean gum line is a completely new range of six references. Combining customers’ technical feedback with market research on consumers’ expectations was the starting point. The new line has been designed to fit manufacturers’ industrial needs and to fulfill consumer expectations for sensory experiences, clean-label, and organic plant-based foods and beverages. It has the solution to add roundness, creaminess and mouthfeel for alt-dairy drinks, ice-cream and spreadable cheese formulated with dairy or plant-based.
With a series of webinars in progress, Nexira shares its expertise in dairy applications to spread the word on this amazing ingredient and to customise its technical support for demanding customers.
Neixira encourage visitors at FIE, Booth #4.C80 to taste its own recipe of frozen yogurt formulated with locust bean gum.
Our range also includes Naltive guar gum, with three guar specialties offering high viscosity and taste neutrality, and five premium guar, partially depolymerised, and offering specific advantages such as the syneresis prevention.
Naltive tara gum includes two references and offers the benefit of efficiency for cold and hot processes and syneresis control.
