Symrise, Tate & Lyle Bio Products partner on new flavor ingredient

October 4, 2013

DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products Co. LLC has partnered with Symrise for the use of Zemea USP propanediol as a carrier for compounded flavors. Zemea USP propanediol is a natural, 100% 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.”
