Corbion Caravan

Corbion Caravan introduced its non-PHO GMS hydrated emulsifiers. The new solutions from the ENSEMBLE line are designed to provide drop-in ease and enhanced softness and volume, all while being free of partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs).

Functionality tests with no-time dough applications demonstrated that the new GMS 520 and GMS 540 non-PHO hydrated emulsifiers improved volume and softness, while maintaining or improving crumb grain and other attributes, indicated Jim Robertson, global product manager for emulsifiers, in a news release. In addition, while GMS 520 is a 1:1 solution, GMS 540 was created to allow customers to reduce usage by 20 per cent, creating the potential to reduce costs.

Corbion Caravan is working toward eliminating all PHO products in its portfolio by early 2017, which is before the June 2018 deadline mandated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
