The development of new, tasty beverages with a natural appearance is a continuing challenge for beverage manufacturers. Especially in the production of soft drinks, microbial contamination is a crucial factor influencing the beverages´ sensory characteristics and also a health risk for consumers.
A natural and sustainable option
The market demands new, fresh beverages with a natural appearance and taste. In response to customers´ needs, we developed the Natural Choice™ flavor, a special formulation for citrus-based beverages. The combination of Velcorin®, which controls microorganisms during the production process, and Natural Choice™, a natural citrus-based flavor with shelf-life extension properties, provides manufacturers the opportunity to participate in this new beverage sector.
• Synergistic effect against microorganisms
• "Clean label" solution with cold-fill technology
• Alternative to persistent preservatives and hot-fill
A superior package for your beverage
With the combination of the Velcorin® microbial control agent and the Natural Choice™ flavor LANXESS Beverage Technologies opens a completely new spectrum of opportunities in beverage production by offering a superior package that outperforms persistent preservatives and other preservation systems.
Both products can be well integrated in a clean label marketing strategy: Velcorin® is a processing aid and Natural Choice™ is a GRAS-certified natural flavor with shelf-life extending properties. For further questions, please feel free to contact us. Natural Choice™ is patented and produced in the USA.
The synergistic combination of Velcorin® and Natural Choice™ can be applied to a broad range of lemon/citrus-based beverages, e.g. Lemonades, sensitive non-carbonated drinks, isotonic drinks and sensitive multi-serve drinks.
