The American Society of Baking (ASB) has recognized Corbion’s clean-label solution for inhibiting mold in bakery products.
The Verdad MP 100 won the ASB Innovation Award in the Health, Wellness and Nutrition category.
The award will be presented at BakingTech 2019, which will be held February 24-26 at the Hilton Chicago, US.
Labeled as “vinegar” and “natural flavor,” Verdad MP 100 achieves clean-label grail status by rivaling both the functionality and flavor neutrality of calcium propionate, the synthetic solution most commonly used for extending the shelf life of bread.
Until Corbion’s product, clean-label mold inhibitors had reportedly either failed to match the performance of calcium propionate, or had managed to deliver the performance only at the expense of product flavor.
