Food Ingredients

Many consumers see value in foods that do not contain  long lists of chemicals in the ingredient declaration.    Clean Labels equate to value in the consumers eyes as they do not have the long unfamiliar ingredients added that consumers do not see as necessary or as harmful. Consumers are starting to demand clean labels and Key Blends is here to help you.  There is no legal definition for clean label products and many companies have their own standards.  Key Blends we will with you to meet your definition of "clean label".

What we do not have is a clear legal definition of Natural, Clean Label and as of this writing Non-GMO.  Individual companies and some states have definitions for these terms, but this does not help with the confusing area of natural, and/or clean label.  We have had requests from companies to remove propylene glycol monoesters (PGME) from cake mixes.  Their emulsifier of choice was polyglycerol esters (PGE).  Is PGE cleaner than PGME?  I don't think so, but once you go down the path to clean up labels there will be limits on what you can do without hurting shelf life stability and/or product quality.  

It is possible to maintain quality and shelf stability by reducing the number of chemicals and/or reducing the levels of the chemicals. While this is not the perfect answer for many, it does point you in the right direction to clean up your labels.

What do they do for YOUR product?  We have seen some products that had long chemicals in them that served ZERO PURPOSE.  The ingredient that was used was designed for another product and they had it in their food and there were several chemicals in it that did NOTHING for them.
