Corbion has released Purac® Powder MA 74 malic acid coating specially designed for high-temperature and humid environments such as in Asia.
Corbion's PURAC® Powder MA 74 is a revolutionary malic acid coating for sanding sugar confectionery in high-temperature and humid environments such as in Asia. Specially designed for the region’s unique requirements, this new ingredient can unleash exciting new flavor opportunities while maintaining quality, shelf-life and consumer appeal.
PURAC® Powder MA 74 is designed to help manufacturers overcome common confectionery challenges by using solutions that are not susceptible to environmental conditions. With a relatively mild malic acid base, PURAC® Powder MA 74 retains stability even in products with a long shelf-life, guaranteeing the consumer an ideal taste experience. This innovative solution has already received approval from Asian regulatory bodies.
PURAC® Powder MA 74 malic acid coating is for sanding sugar confectionery. It ensures a more stable product under warm and humid environments.
Many acids used in candy applications are coated with fat, which can lead to stability issues, hygroscopicity, acid migration, gelatin degradation and flavor spoilage. Specifically designed for high-temperature and high-humidity applications, PURAC® Powder MA 74 ensures that acid sanding coatings retain their sour taste and stability from manufacturer to consumer without degradation or loss of quality. Through the use of PURAC® Powder MA 74, further innovations in chewies, center-filled candies, powdered candies and soft-panned products can be explored.
Ardie van Lankveld, market manager confectionery at Corbion, comments: “The Asia-Pacific market is an incredibly exciting one, with unique opportunities. It is known as one of the most experimental and innovative markets and is expected to achieve an impressive CAGR of 6.1% over the next five years. Our ground-breaking acid sanding solutions are already popular in Europe, but the different conditions present in Asia meant further technical changes were needed to ensure customers here obtain the same benefits despite the more challenging conditions. We are positive that PURAC® Powder MA 74 will stand the test and benefit both the manufacturers and the consumers.”
