Earlier this month, CD Formulation announced it has launched a wide portfolio of natural, functional, and synthetic food ingredients for both researchers and manufacturers of healthcare products.

Over the past decades, numerous ingredients have performed a variety of useful functions in many types of foods. Food additives play an important role in maintaining a food supply that is flavorful, nutritious, safe, convenient, colorful, and affordable.

“Food ingredients are added to food as substances to achieve certain desired effects. For instance, food preservatives such as antioxidants are added to maintain or improve safety and freshness, especially for fats, oils, and foods containing them. Meanwhile, nutrients like vitamins, minerals, and fibers are added to many foods to enhance their nutritional quality. Another example, is other food ingredients such as sweeteners, and natural and artificial flavors are added to enhance the taste, texture, and appearance of food,” said the Marketing Chief of CD Formulation.

In general, food additives can be grouped into direct additives and indirect additives. The former is used in foods to impart specific technical or functional qualities, while the latter is not intentionally added to foods, but may be present in trace amounts during processing, packaging, transportation, or storage. Therefore, all materials coming in contact with food should be safe.
