Naturex awarded for Talin® at Ringier Technology Innovation Awards 2012

July 19th, 2012

Shanghai, 2nd July – Naturex received an award in the category “Food & Beverage Ingredient” for Talin®, an extract from Thaumatococcus Daniellii during the Ringier Technology Innovation Awards ceremony held in Shanghai last week.

Taking place during the Food ingredients Asia-China trade show 2012 in Shanghai, this award celebrates innovation from companies that have significantly contributed to the advancement of China’s food and beverage industry. Innovation winners are selected by a panel of independent judges based on serious reviews, evaluation and the voting results of the public.

Guirec Rollando, East Asia Sales Director commented “We are very pleased to receive this Ringier Technology Innovation prize for Product and Technology Innovation. 2012 is a special year for Talin® in China.” Indeed, in early June this multifunctional food additive was formally adopted by the Chinese food regulation authorities. “This regulatory update and this influential industry award will broaden opportunities in the buoyant Chinese market” he added.

With over 30 years of experience, Naturex is the world leader in Thaumatin. Talin® is a multifunctional food additive that simply improves the taste profile of foods and beverages, masking off tastes, enhancing flavours and improving the taste of sugar and salt replacers. Wild harvested from the West African rainforest, the fruit of Thaumatococcus Daniellii is water extracted to ensure the Thaumatin remains 100% natural.

Talin® is allowed in processed beverages, table-top sweeteners, ice beverages, bakery products and nuts and seeds. Naturex foresees an increase in “light” beverages with more rounded flavors and sweetness profiles and healthier options in table top sweeteners. Talin® is an ideal ingredient for these two categories as it is a natural sweet protein and has an insignificant calorie contribution.
