At this year’s IFT Food Expo Sternchemie, an international supplier of lecithins and food lipids, is focusing on clean label solutions.
In lecithins, the company offers non-GMO, hypoallergenic, and certified organic products that can be used for baked goods and confections, instant powders and nutritional supplements. A particular highlight of Sternchemie’s offerings is its organic sunflower-based lecithin, “Greencithin S”. Naturally, Sternchemie also develops clean label lecithin solutions with specific properties to customer order.
In addition to lecithin, the company also offers MCT oil, including in sustainable RSPO-compliant as well as palm-free versions. Being colorless, odorless, and flavorless, this low-viscosity oil is ideal for many products, from baby food to baked goods and confections, to sports nutrition. Sternchemie also offers powdered versions of MCT that are suitable for vegan, ketogenic, and other trendy nutrition forms. Here again, the focus is on clean label solutions.
Other products are RSPO SG-certified red palm oil, in high demand as a natural food coloring, as well as (vegan) coconut milk powder for cold and hot foods, baked goods and confections, and ice cream. At the shared SternMaid Ingredients booth, visitors can learn about all the things Sternchemie offers and meet the U.S. sales team. As a subsidiary of the international Stern-Wywiol Gruppe, Sternchemie uses the group’s own local sales network as well as selected distribution partners.
