Doehler Highlights Innovative Ingredients, Ingredient Systems & Integrated Solutions
No innovation without continuous evolution! This was the theme running through Doehler’s (Döhler’s) presentation of an integrated product portfolio at FIE in Paris (29.11.-1.12.2011). As a global producer, marketer and provider of natural ingredients, ingredient systems and integrated solutions for the food and beverage industry, Doehler understands this evolution to mean not just continuously refining its own products and technologies. Rather, this central theme describes the goal of constantly optimising products together with the customer and additionally opening up new market potential with innovations. The results of this development: natural solutions for sugar reduction – like SRT or MultiSweet Stevia – a broad portfolio of flavours and flavour extracts, natural colours, innovative solutions for 100% fruit, as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage bases were showcased at the Doehler stand.
Light – but as natural as possible – is the wish of many consumers when it comes to food and beverages. In this connection, “stevia” has recently been on everyone’s lips in the true sense of the phrase. Under the MultiSweet Stevia brand Doehler has developed a sweetener with outstanding sensory properties. Sweetness Improving Technology (SIT) ensures an especially near-sugar taste. For the claim “with no added sugar”, MultiSweet Stevia can be combined with MultiSweet Fruit, a range of partially decoloured or partially deacidified apple juice concentrates.
A product’s appealing visual appearance ensures the initial purchase – its good taste a repeat purchase. For products with both a compelling look and taste, Doehler was presenting an array of natural colours and flavours in Paris. The portfolio for exceptional enjoyment ranges from high-quality fruit flavours and extracts, mint flavours and white flavours to new citrus emulsions. In addition, Doehler unveiled innovative flavour technologies for natural and sensorially optimal calorie reduction. Doehler was demonstrating its expertise in the field of food colours with colouring concentrates, natural colour formulations, anthocyanins and crystal-clear emulsions.
Less sweet, but natural and authentic tea taste – this is what many consumers want when it comes to tea beverages. In association with Plantextrakt, Doehler is now offering a portfolio of directly brewed, strong tea infusions. And Doehler has designed the tea beverages to match. The concepts on the basis of the strong tea infusions range from brewed iced teas and premium brewed iced teas to true teas – the purest form of tea enjoyment.
The demand for fresh fruit and fruit raw materials has risen globally in recent years. To enable its customers to enjoy reliable raw materials supply, Doehler is constantly developing new solution channels. These include, on the one hand, opening up new raw materials sources and fruit varieties. On the other, Doehler makes more of the fruit: with the aid of cutting-edge technologies all valuable fruit components are extracted down to the smallest detail and the very last drop. At FIE Doehler was presenting a broad product portfolio of fruit juices, fruit juice concentrates, purées and fruit juice blends alongside fruity product applications.
In 2010 the market volume of malt beverages worldwide climbed to some 1.7 billion litres. To meet heightened demand for malt extracts and malt bases formulated to customer-specific needs, in the same year Doehler commissioned a further plant equipped with state-of-the-art technology, in Neuss, Germany. In addition to fresh product concepts Doehler was using FIE to showcase innovative malt bases. The product portfolio also permits breweries the cost-efficient production of malt beverages. Doehler opens up simple entry into this exciting beverage category to soft-drinks manufacturers.
Whether limes, cream or fruit liqueurs, flavoured spirits or innovative ciders: Doehler provides the full range of ingredients and ingredient systems for these products from one source. At FIE the DoehlerGroup was presenting alcohol-stable milk and cream bases, alcoholic cider and fruit wine bases, as well as alcohol-stable fruit juice concentrates, purées and flavours. This portfolio gives Doehler customers undreamed-of flexibility in the development and production of alcohol-containing beverages.
Alongside these products and product applications, Doehler was also unveiling a host of other innovations for the beverage and food industry at FIE in Paris.
