Clean label ingredient solutions you can indulge in without fear

Since the last decade, consumer demand for clean label products has increased considerably. Spearheaded by the new health wave, eating healthy, is all about Natural vs Synthetic ingredients. Though our food may look appealing and taste delicious, the hidden dangers in these food products are profound. The catchy names and the fancy packaging may fool you and so does the word flavouring. The food that contains artificial flavouring is indirectly putting you and your family at risk for major health problems.

Artificial Flavouring is known to cause many problems including: allergies, brain damage, seizures, genetic defects, tumours, and many other types of cancers. As more companies commit to removing artificial ingredients, clean labels will become the expectation, not the exception. With savvy customers on the rise, ingredient sourcing and processing will be the points to be highlighted for clean label products.

A rising new trend in the industry shows the launch of many products with roasted, grilled and smoked flavours across various categories of food. However, there are also several risks to understanding the profile, like are they natural, compliant to regulations, or created in a way where the products are “carcinogenic” in nature and likewise.

In order to address these various concerns, Kancor’s Ingredient Solutions team have spent time on detailed research and market analysis to create the solution that can be the “indulgence” for the industry. With controlled process parameters Kancor’s team have created the perfect roasted notes that mimic the kitchen creations of ethnic households across the world and also meet the regulatory compliance of being completely natural and easy to use.

The Next Generation Clean label products are evolving from being all natural to simple and recognizable ingredients. Consumer’s trust can be won with transparency, when clear information about how a product is made is available to the consumers. Consumers are often bombarded with contradictory information on which ingredients are recommended and which ones should be avoided. These reports make consumers perplexed to a great extent because of lack of correct advice. As a result, consumers are more interested to know what food and drink offer instead of what it lacks. This affirmational approach maintains the importance of formulating with natural as observed by Mintel’s 2017 Global Food & Drink Trend.
