Danisco and Mingtai form strategic partnership

Feb 13, 2009

Danisco  has formed a strategic partnership with the second largest microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) manufacturer in the world, Mingtai in Taiwan. The partnership will focus on developing MCC-based solutions to the global food industry, and Danisco introduces a full range of GRINDSTED MCC types optimised towards the specific food application in question.

The Danisco-Mingtai partnership not only allows Danisco to market GRINDSTED MCC, but also allows the two parties to develop new products and optimise production technologies and costs.
The world food market for MCC is estimated to be above DKK 500 million.

Microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) is derived from specially produced wood pulp. It provides a fat-like
mouthfeel and is therefore used to replace fat in a number of emulsified products such as mayonnaise,
creamy dressings, processed cheese and desserts. MCC is also one of the best hydrocolloids for the
suspension of particles and is used in, for instance, chocolate milk and nutritional drinks.
