At Fi Europe 2022, Nexira will launch its new range of natural and efficient texturizers under the brand naltive.
New Range of Natural and Efficient Texturizers Under the Brand Naltive Locust Bean Gum, Guar Specialties & Tara Gum
One year ago, Nexira acquired Unipektin, a Swiss-based company, world-leading expert in the production of locust bean gum, guar specialties and tara gum.
Today, after a teamwork between technical experts and developers, Nexira is proud to present naltive, specially designed to match the market needs of formulators and consumers.
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. References are processed in Nexira’s factory in Switzerland with the highest quality standards.
naltive locust bean gum
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. 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. 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.
With a series of webinar in progress, Nexira shares its expertise in dairy applications to spread the word on this amazing ingredient and to customize its technical support for demanding customers.
naltive guar gum
Nexira developed a complete range of clean label guar gum specialties with specific and unique functionalities:
- A range of premium depolymerized grades that provides high syneresis control and texture enhancement with limited slimy effect. Ideal for cold applications & suitable for frozen products. The range offers different viscosity to fit the requested textures.
- A range of highly purified grades with a very neutral taste that helps to improve the texture of sauces, ice cream, baked goods, dairy products, and alternative dairy.
naltive tara gum
Nexira developed the naltive tara gum range:
- naltive tara premium Syn: a viscosity-reduced tara, suitable for cold processes. Made in our own factory, using our proprietary process, naltive tara premium Syn offers a double water-binding capacity and thus provides better control to prevent syneresis without impacting the texture.
- naltive tara provides thickness and mouthfeel for many food applications. Specifically in ice cream, naltive tara prevents the growth of ice crystals, improves resistance to heat-shock, and provides a smooth meltdown.
