From Peels to Perfection

Fooditive Thickening Agent 

In the realm of food applications, having ingredients that perform exceptionally and offer clean label solutions is crucial. With that notion, we at Fooditive proudly introduce our Thickening Agent, ingeniously made using banana skins.

Our quest for a solution to utilise banana side-streams has led us to the creation of this product. The Fooditive Thickening Agent is a testament to the power of circular economy principles, as we reuse the valuable components found in banana peels that are often discarded.

The secret lies in our banana skin extract, which contains two surfactants. One surfactant stabilises the thickener, while the other facilitates the polymer's interaction with the aqueous phase of the formulation. As the product is added to water, the polymer expands into the water phase, thickening the mixture and providing stability. As the formulation thickens, it emulsifies and stabilises the oil phase ingredients.
