IFT FIRST 2023

Naltive™, the solution to create the perfect sensory experience for your dairy and plant-based applications

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, protein properties. naltive™ offers three types of hydrocolloids with locust bean gum being its flagship ingredient, tara gum and guar specialties. Our references are processed in our own facility in Switzerland with the highest quality standards.

Using only purely natural and physical processes, minimally processed, the large naltive™ locust bean gum range is best-in-class 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 feedbacks with market research on consumers’ expectations was the starting point. Our 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. We have the solution to add roundness, creaminess and mouthfeel for alt-dairy drinks, ice-cream and spreadable cheese formulated with dairy or plant-based.

Our range also includes naltive™ guar gum, a complete range of guar gum specialties with specific and unique functionalities: a range of highly purified grades with a very neutral taste and a range of premium depolymerized grades that provides high syneresis control and texture enhancement with limited slimy effect.

naltive™ tara gum offers the benefit of an efficiency for cold and hot processes and syneresis control.
