DouxMatok and Hi-Food Partner to Deliver Great Tasting Nutritional Sugar Reduced Solutions

Share

Today, DouxMatok (Israel/USA) and Hi-Food (Italy), two food-tech pioneers leading the development of innovative ingredients, announce a partnership to deliver a complete end-to-end nutritional solution for food manufacturers. DouxMatok’s first-of-its-kind sugar-based sugar reduction solution, Incredo® Sugar, alongside Hi-Food’s semi-solid fiber of natural origin, Meltec®, will allow food brands to address sugar reduction in food products without compromising on taste, texture, sweetness or nutrition.

Incredo Sugar, which officially launched last year and is now commercially available in the U.S., enables up to 50% sugar reduction in food products. The ingredient allows room for nutritional ingredients such as fibers and plant-based proteins, creating a natural fit for a joint effort with Hi-Food’s Meltec, an innovative semi-solid ingredient similar to syrup that is based on vegetable fibers of natural origin. In addition to enriched fiber content, Meltec improves structural properties in food products, is neutral in taste and does not alter odors or colors.

“In partnership with Hi-Food, we’ll be able to deliver more than just a specialty ingredient for great tasting sugar reduction solutions to food brands,” said DouxMatok’s Chief Technology Officer, David Tsivion. “We can provide a full nutritional platform that delivers the scalability and functionality needed for food developers and food production, and the sweetness and mouthfeel that consumers have come to expect.”

The collaborative effort between DouxMatok and Hi-Food addresses one of the most common challenges of existing solutions on the market — maintaining sweetness and other sugar functionalities while avoiding the aftertastes often associated with sugar substitute bulking solutions and addressing other missing sugar functionalities. Research and application development teams at both companies have been working together for over a year to test Incredo® Sugar and Meltec® in combination as pillars to full nutritional solutions in various applications.

“We’re really impressed with the collaborative work of our team and our partners at DouxMatok, and we’re confident in the ability of these combined ingredients to provide a solution that the market is lacking,” said Emanuele Pizzigalli, R&D Officer and co-founder at Hi-Food. “Sugar reduction is a key priority for food manufacturers across the globe, and we’re committed to helping them address this challenge through the use of our fibers with Incredo Sugar.”

The companies have developed product prototypes across a range of applications, including cakes, cookies, chocolate, candy, protein bars, energy bars, snacks, and more. The unique combination of these ingredients also provides an added sustainability value for the food industry as a whole, helping to reduce the environmental impact of overconsumption of sugar, and at the same time exploiting the use of high-quality raw materials from well controlled legumes and cereals supply chains. Products utilizing DouxMatok and Hi-Food’s full nutritional solution are expected to launch in early 2022.

BeiGene (NASDAQ: BGNE; HKEX: 06160) today announced the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has adopted a positive opinion, recommending approval of BRUKINSA (zanubrutinib) for the treatment of adult patients with Waldenström’s macroglobulinemia (WM) who have received at least one prior therapy or first-line treatment for patients unsuitable for chemo-immunotherapy. “Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitors have emerged as a promising treatment for WM, yet treatment discontinuation due to lack of response or side effects remains a concern,” said Prof. Christian Buske, Medical Director at the University Hospital Ulm, Germany, and a trial investigator of the ASPEN study. “The ASPEN trial demonstrated that BRUKINSA provided deep and durable responses and offered substantial improvements in safety and tolerability over standard therapy. Patients in Europe with WM may soon have a new treatment option that can offer improved outcomes.
