In the large and diverse global marketplace for beverages, consumers demand both quality and consistency in their beverage choices, including great appearance, taste and texture. Dow provides cost-effective functional stabilizers that help protect and stabilize beverages.
Solutions for Texture Enhancement and Preservation
WALOCEL™ stabilizer offers cost effective viscosity building and stability in a wide range of beverages including alcoholic beverages. WALOCEL™ also helps to prevent phase separation, improves mouthfeel and contributes to the stabilization of particles like pulp and fibers. WALOCEL™ is available in a wide range of viscosities.
In blends of fruit juices and dairy or soy milks, CLEAR+STABLE™ stabilizer will be able to interact with proteins to stabilize and prevent their denaturation also avoiding phase separation and texture degradation. CLEAR+STABLE™ also offers winemakers a solution for preventing the formation of crystals or cloudiness and sedimentation which negatively impact the wine’s overall quality. Finally, CLEAR+STABLE™ avoids the high costs and lengthy processing time of cold stabilization without changing the taste or smell of the wine itself.
METHOCEL™ plant-based stabilizers create stable foams, making it an ideal component for cold beverages.
VERSENE™ CA Chelating Agent
VERSENE™ chelating agent products effectively control copper and iron traces under beverage processing conditions and in canned beverages by deactivating problem metals. This means the metals cannot react with your ingredients and cause flavor loss, color fading, and the degradation of formulation ingredients, especially vitamins. VERSENE™ CA has excellent heat and pH stability it is compatible with most beverage systems and processes.
PuraGuard™ Propylene Glycol USP/EP
PuraGuard™ Propylene Glycol USP/EP is an excellent extraction aid and carrier for flavors, colors and enzymes, which helps beverages stay colorful and tasty. It also enables the extraction of natural flavoring materials such as the extraction of vanilla from vanilla beans.
