naltive, the Best-in-Class

NEW natural and efficient texturizer launched at the latest FI Europe!

naltive LBG 190 FV, also white and without speck, offers the highest viscosity at lower temperature. This results in smoother texture, improved creaminess, and controlled syneresis, especially in case of rising temperature throughout the process.
