Substitute for TiO2 

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is banned as a food ingredient in the EU; other countries are planning to do the same. Manufacturers face the challenge of finding a safe alternative.

Free of nanoparticles, easily metabolized and with additional nutritional benefits, it is the most cost-effective natural white alternative currently available. It delivers whitening solutions for bakery creams, powder beverages, hard-boiled candies as well as pan coatings for all kinds of confectionery and is also suitable for a wide range of other applications. Highly compatible with other ingredients and acid stable, White Diamond is a globally accepted food additive. Döhler GmbH; Darmstadt, Germany, www.doehler.com

Oil and water can mix 

Capsoil Foodtech enables mixing oil and water by developing ultra-fine, water-soluble powders out of natural oils, allowing the addition of beneficial nutritional oils, fat-soluble vitamins and lipid-based nutrients into a broader range of functional foods and beverages. This opens the doors to products such as juices enriched with MCTs or ice pops fortified with omega fatty acids. Even hot drinks can get a ‘better-for-you’ upgrade by infusing them with beneficial oils, such as vitamins A, D, E, and K, or hemp oils. The company works with food and beverage companies to tailor new food and beverage applications or find novel delivery methods. Prodalim Group www.capsoilfoodtech.com
