Customers are more interested than ever in bio-based ingredients. TLC Ingredients has partnered with Industry Leaders to identify more sustainable products. The USDA Developed the BioPreferred program to help consumers identify bio-based products. ADM’s Propylene Glycol is certified by USDA as 100% bio-based due to its crop-derived raw material source Akzo Nobel’s Dissolvine GL chelating agent is certified as 58% bio-based, made from MSG and fermented sugar. Ivanhoe Industries produces emulsifiers based on vegetable-derived Sorbitol and Glycerine, as well as non-silicone defoamers from vegetable oils. Ask TLC about “friendlier” alternatives to petrochemical-derived surfactants. Many are derived from sustainable Oleochemicals and Fatty Alcohols. Please consider TLC Ingredients as your resource when trying to re-formulate existing products and developing new products.
