- Limagrain Céréales Ingrédients is launching CERECLEAN, a 100% clean label preservative that provides the same results as a chemical preservative like calcium propionate (additive E282) or alcohol. CERECLEAN is simple to use and reassuringly includes “fermented wheat flour.” It ensures a long shelf life for breads, brioches, and pastries, without any impact on the flavour or texture of the finished product.
- L-RD has launched Luzixine, a new source of 100% French sustainable vegetable protein. In addition to its protein content (50–60%), Luzixine is also rich in iron, calcium, and vitamins A, B6, and E.
- Plantex has developed a high-protein hemp extract for food supplements and beverages.
- Diana food is launching organic banana flakes (origin: Ecuador) that are rich in fibre and minerals. These flakes are available in Baby Food quality and can also be used to make healthy snacks.
- Berrico has launched a range of dried vegetables infused in apple juice. This enhances the flavour of the vegetable while giving it sweet notes.
Regulation and certification watch
- Regulation (EU) 2018/848 of the European Parliament and the Council of 30th May 2018, published in the Official Journal on 14th June, concerns organic production and the labelling of organic products, and repeals the Council’s Regulation (EC) 834/2007
- The Commission’s Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/775 of 28th May 2018 laying down detailed rules for the application of the European Parliament and the Council’s Regulation (EU) 1169/2011, Article 26(3), concerning consumer information with regard to the rules of indication of the country of origin or the place of provenance of the primary ingredient of a food product
- Unilever received a positive opinion from EFSA regarding its claim “Due to its caffeine content, black tea improves attention”; however, its claim with regards to black tea and a normal endothelial-dependent vasodilatation was rejected.
- The international voluntary standard governing the management of food safety has changed. ISO 22000 v2018 offers enhanced management requirements and maintains the same goal: to help companies ensure safe products and foods. Used by more than 30,000 organisations worldwide, including 600 in France, ISO 22000 is a standard without any application constraints. Its 2018 version proposes a new approach to prevent, eliminate, and control food-related hazards, from the production site to consumption. ISO 22000-certified companies now have three years to upgrade their food safety management system to the new version. (Source: RIA)
Packaging / Process / Technology watch
- The global smart packaging market is expected to reach $52 billion in 2025. These packaging offer improved traceability and transparency, food safety, marketing tools, and they also strengthen the fight against counterfeit products.
- The new English organic beverage FACT combines several advanced technologies to optimise the relationship with its customers. Customers can use the Almond app to scan a unique 2D laser-printed code under the tab of its cans and explore the history of the product, its location and date of manufacture and packaging, its journey to the point of sale, its carbon footprint (from raw materials to the point of sale), etc. Customers can also use this app to get rewards in the form of refundable tokens. Conversely, the brand obtains valuable information about where and when the consumer bought or consumed the product. (Process alimentaire)
