Technologists in search of a naturally derived alternative to petroleum-based ingredients now have a pure, multifunctional option available in the form of Zemea® USP-FCC propanediol. With functions ranging from bitterness suppression in food and beverages to a flavor and extract carrier, Zemea® USP-FCC propanediol is the newest tool in the formulators toolbox for a wide range of applications.
