DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products Co. LLC is excited to announce that it has partnered with Symrise for the use of Zemea® USP propanediol as a carrier for compounded flavors. Zemea USP propanediol is a natural, 100 percent biobased solvent and humectant made from fermentation of glucose. It is an environmentally sustainable alternative to petroleum-based glycols and glycerin, where the product’s humectancy, preservative effects, unique solubility and taste properties may be beneficial in food and beverage applications.
“Symrise is an excellent partner to develop and market innovative flavor formulations using our natural flavor carrier,” said Steve Hurff, vice president of marketing and sales, DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products. “As a leader in this market, Symrise has the technical capabilities and market reach to make Zemea USP the carrier of choice for flavor compounds.”
“We are very excited to enter into this exclusive launch partnership with DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products. There is a growing need by our key clients for all-natural products, and Symrise will be in the excellent position to support this trend,” said Dr. Matthias Guentert, president of the Symrise Flavor & Nutrition Division in North America.
