GORINCHEM, The NetherlandsPurac announced its PURAC® Powder MA coated malic acid has been granted GRAS status and can now be used in confectionery, powdered beverages and jellies in the United States.
A unique, stable acid powder, PURAC Powder MA is a malic acid coated in sodium hydrogen malate that remains stable even in products with an extended shelf life and delivers an instant, but long-lasting sour taste in the mouth. PURAC Powder MA has a coating made of partially neutralized polycarboxylic acid, which remains dry throughout the products shelf life and then dissolves much faster on consumption than fat coatings. This offers an instantaneous, refreshing burst of acidity. Its fresh, fruity taste profile and long-lasting stability make it ideal for acid sanding in confectionery products.
This is great news for formulators looking for a sour taste and superior product stability," said Hans Schinck, category manager, taste and nutrition at Purac. The twin benefits of PURAC Powder MA, which is already used in a range of European confectionery products, are now available to the North American market as well."
