Wilmington, DE — DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products Co., LLC is partnering with functional ingredient supplier Symrise to develop flavor formulations using DuPont’s Zemea USP propanediol as a natural carrier for compound flavors.

A 100 percent biobased solvent and humectant made from fermentation of glucose, Zemea USP is an environmentally sustainable alternative to petroleum-based glycols and glycerin, DuPont reports. “The product’s humectancy, preservative effects, unique solubility and taste properties might be beneficial in food and beverage applications,” Dupont claims.
