Ingredion receives Canadian approval for quillaja extract emulsifier

quillaja flowerIngredion has received approval from Canada’s public health body to use its Q-Naturale emulsifier in food and beverage applications.

Health Canada has approved quillaja extract as an emulsifying agent for oil-based colouring formulations, unstandardised oil-based flavouring preparations, and other unstandardised oil-based ingredients that are used in a number of products.

Q-Naturale – described by US-based Ingredion as a highly efficient, clean label, alternative emulsifier – had only previously been permitted by Health Canada as a foaming stabilising agent for use in beverages.

Dinah Diaz, senior marketing manager for Ingredion, said: “This authorisation is exciting news because it enables us to extend the unique benefits of Q-Naturale emulsifier beyond the US and Europe. We are eager to demonstrate the excellent emulsification capabilities of this clean label emulsifier to our customers in Canada.”

Q-Naturale emulsifier is derived from quillaja trees grown in Chile using sustainable agriculture practices certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. Quillaja plantations can provide enough extract to replace the world’s supply of gum arabic for beverages, Ingredion said. Its exclusive industry partnership with Chilean growers of quillaja means that formulators now have access to a secure and cost-effective alternative to gum arabic.

It can be used as an emulsifier in beverages, flavour concentrates, chewing gum, gravies and sauces, snack foods, soups and others.
