DuPont Nutrition and Biosciences (Brabrand, Denmark) debuted a naturally-sourced stabilizer for plant-based and vegan beverages, called Grindsted Gellan Veg 200. The ingredient meets an important need in the marketplace, as more consumers turn to plant-based products for their perceived health benefits, environmental sustainability, and ethical reasons.

“Produced by bacteria, during fermentation of renewable, bio-based raw materials, Gellan VEG 200 is a purely natural solution,” said Lise Stouby, senior scientist, DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences, in a press release. “It provides excellent stability and particle suspension and minimal contribution to mouthfeel.”

The ingredient is suitable for use with a wide range of plant-sourced raw materials, it has a low protein reactivity, and high performance across a broad pH range. By adding Gellan Veg 200 directly into the ingredient mix helps create a homogenous and stable final product.
