    Emulsifiers

    Emulsifiers are among the most frequently used types of food additives. They are used to make an emulsion: a mixture of oil and water (e.g. mayonnaise), which would separate in these two phases when the emulsifier would not be added. There are two types of emulsions. An oil-in-water emulsion contains small droplets of oil that are dispersed in water. Alternatively, a water-in-oil emulsion has small droplets of water that are dispersed in an oil. Acatris can provide the most common types of emulsifiers available for use in food systems.

  • fibre-rich.530x303x1

    Fibres

    Dietary fibre is the indigestible portion of food derived from plants.

    There are two main types:

    • Soluble fibre dissolves in water. It is readily fermented in the colon into gases and physiologically active by products, and can be prebiotic and/or viscous. Soluble fibres tend to slow the movement of food through the system.

    • Insoluble fibre does not dissolve in water. It can be metabolically inert and provide bulking, or it can be prebiotic and metabolically ferment in the large intestine. Bulking fibres absorb water as they move through the digestive system. Insoluble fibres tend to accelerate the movement of food through the system.

    Acatris can provide several types of fibre, both soluble and insoluble.

  • stevia

    Sweeteners

    A sweetener is used to sweeten food. There are two main categories of sweeteners: 

    • Intensive sweeteners; ingredients which have a higher sweetening power than sugar, for example Steviol Glycosides (Stevia Extract) which is about 300 times more sweet than sugar. 
    • Bulk sweeteners; sweeteners with a sweetening power less intensive than sugar, for example erythritol which has about 70% of the sweetening power of sucrose. 

     

    In practice usually a combination of bulk- and intensive sweeteners is used to replace sugar, because sugar content is important for many other product properties besides only the taste. Water activity or freeze point depression for example are strongly dependant on sugar content.
