The important feature of the technology employed for production of Valencene Pure™ is the scalability. This allows for quick upgrades of production capacities, which is impossible in agriculture derived ingredients.
As a result of the technology employed for the synthesis of the molecule, Valencene Pure™ is available in a concentration much higher than orange derived valencene, Furthermore, the development of flavour profiles based on Valencene Pure™ is easier since it requires only minor tweaking.
"Food manufacturers can make use of Valencene Pure™ to create natural grapefruit notes in their products without having to worry about quality issues that plague natural extracts," remarks Dr. Shankar. "While concentrations of the active molecules are consistent, there are little or no associated impurities with the product like insecticide residues, which are common in natural products. This results in greater customer confidence."
The technology developed by Isobionics reduces the amount of energy embodied in the production process for valencene and therefore enables the creation of a more environment friendly product. Manufacturers may also be able to develop products with the ultimate aim of reducing the footprint of their final product, using ingredients such as Valencene Pure™.
The Technology Innovation Award is presented to the company that has excelled in the following criteria: uniqueness of technology, impact on new products/applications, impact on functionality, impact on customer value and relevance of innovation to industry.
