DuPont Nutrition and Health develops a new, naturally sourced monoglyceride emulsifier

DuPont Nutrition and Health has developed a new, naturally sourced monoglyceride emulsifier that brings food manufacturers improved production and handling efficiencies.

Monoglycerides are among the most widely used emulsifiers in the food industry, but they can become lumpy under certain conditions.

Many food manufacturers faced a challenge with product flowability when using powdered, inhomogenous emulsifiers.

This led DuPont Nutrition and Health to develop the unique beaded format of DIMODAN HP 90-M – a homogenous emulsifier that enhances food manufacturers productivity.

DIMODAN HP 90-M from the DuPont Danisco ingredient range comes in a beaded format that helps reduce lump formation, resulting in better product flowability.

In addition, dust formation is significantly reduced during production, leading to improved safety and health conditions for the handlers.

DIMODAN HP 90-M delivers the same functionalities and quality as existing monoglyceride emulsifiers and can be applied in various applications including margarine, non-dairy creamers, whipping gels and many more applications.

Sun Ligong, regional product manager, said standard monoglyceride emulsifiers came in a fine, powdered format with inhomogeneous particles that ultimately caused lumps and flow-related issues.

“Our beaded format is coarse with more homogeneous particles that prevents lumping and increases flowability. This brings a number of enhancements to the production and shipping stages for our customers who now have products with more consistency,” said Ligong.

DIMODAN HP 90-M is a naturally and sustainably sourced emulsifier, based on palm oil.

As of January 2017, DuPont Nutrition and Health completed its switch to 100 per cent certified sustainable palm oil and palm oil derivatives used in its global emulsifier production.

This means the company’s entire global range of palm-based emulsifiers is now based on RSPO-certified sustainable palm oil and derivatives, which promotes the production of palm oil with greater consideration of its environmental and social impacts.

The DIMODAN HP 90-M is part of the broad DIMODAN range from DuPont Danisco, which is designed to help food manufacturers develop and produce hydrogenation-free products.

Based on sunflower, rapeseed, palm or soya bean oil, these emulsifiers are commonly used in bakery, oils, fats, dairy, frozen desserts, confectionery and plastics, and are available in various formats and packaging.
