Company: TIC Gums
Ingredient Snapshot: TIC Gums will debut new hydrocolloid solutions that address clean label demands and new FSMA compliance regulation concerns at IFT 2017, including GuarNT USA.
The recent implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) aims to ensure the U.S. food supply, including imported food and ingredients, is safe. Focus has shifted from responsive measures concerning contamination risks to implementing enhanced preventive measures. This heightened responsibility has been placed with all food manufacturers and importers.
GuarNT USA also has a flavor free variation, GuarNT USA Flavor Free 5000, for delicate applications which have previously had usage level restrictions for standard guar gum due to “beany” or “grassy” off-notes in both flavor and odor.
