Corbion targets Asian confectionery with malic acid coating for humid climates

Corbion has launched Purac Powder MA 74, a so-called “revolutionary” malic acid coating for sanding sugar confectionery in high-temperature and humid environments common to Asia. Specially designed for the region’s unique requirements, the product unleashes new flavour opportunities while maintaining quality, shelf-life and consumer appeal, according to the company.

Purac Powder MA 74 is designed to help manufacturers overcome common confectionery challenges by using solutions that are not susceptible to environmental conditions. With a relatively mild malic acid-base, the coating retains stability even in products with a long shelf-life, guaranteeing the consumer an ideal taste experience. The solution has already received approval from Asian regulatory bodies.
