DuPont Nutrition & Health Increases the Appeal of Dairy-Free Drinks

DuPont Nutrition & Health (DuPont) has made it easier for beverage manufacturers to produce stable soy, almond and other plant-based drinks with a refreshing texture and a clean label. Utilizing a new ingredient in the DuPont™ Danisco® range, manufacturers can obtain all the functionality they need without mixing in other additives.

The gelling ingredient is GRINDSTED® GELLAN MAS 100 – otherwise known as gellan gum – and is the label-friendly stabilizer for non-dairy beverages made with pulses, grains, nuts and plant-derived protein. Previously produced by DuPont for ingredient systems, it is now available as a single ingredient for the first time.

“The main driver is the demand for dairy-free drinks for lactose-intolerant consumers. According to the latest market intelligence, close to 25% of European consumers are reducing or avoiding dairy products in their diet for health reasons,” says Jean-Baptiste Dufeu, DuPont global product manager. “Our ingredient enables manufacturers to respond to this trend by stabilizing particles in plant-based beverages and creating a refreshingly smooth texture. Consumers experience a refreshing drink with an authentic flavor profile.”

Market analysts at Euromonitor and Innova Market Insights have registered an explosion in sales of plant-based drinks. In 2016, sales in Western Europe alone reached $1.5 billion. Soy beverages accounted for around $1 billion of those sales – a dominant position that is now being challenged by the rise of drinks based on rice, almond and oats.

GRINDSTED® GELLAN MAS 100 provides reliable stabilizing functionality with a low cost in use, regardless of raw material fluctuations. No other additives are required – supporting the consumer preference for clean-label, plant-based drinks that are free of artificial ingredients.

Gellan gum is the latest addition to the broad DuPont™ Danisco® range of texturants, which is backed by strong expertise in optimizing the texture, taste and appearance of specific food and beverage applications.
