After expanding capacity by 1,500 tons, Danisco introduces a full range of Grindsted cellulose gum (highly-purified CMC) for the food, oral care and pharmaceutical industries, targeting a market of more than $300 million. Grindsted cellulose gum has been specifically developed and is quality tested according to the functionality by application.
“With the Grindsted cellulose gum range, manufacturers are being offered a competitive alternative specifically developed to suit the functional properties required in the various applications and to ensure a cost optimized consistent performance,” says Global Business Manager Jean Baptiste Dufeu from Danisco’s Gums & Systems Division. “Specific application testing is typically part of the product specifications and quality control of each of the Grindsted cellulose gum production batches.”
Food applications for Grindsted cellulose gum include a full range of products for acidified milk drinks (AMD range), bakery (BAK range), beverages (BEV range) and meat and savory (MAS range) – all designed by final application.
The range fulfills the international food and pharmaceutical specifications as laid down by WHO/FAO, FCC, USP/NF and the EU. The production takes place at a Danisco-owned, dedicated and fully automated production facility. The production follows GMP and HACCP rules and is ISO certified.
Danisco already offers the industry’s widest range of hydrocolloids including pectin, xanthan gum, carrageenan, alginate, cellulose gum, microcrystalline cellulose, locust bean and guar gum as well as customized solutions/blends of hydrocolloids, emulsifiers, enzymes, etc.
