Huber’s impact on food & beverage
Start your day the Huber way
Rise and shine, it’s time for breakfast. GENU® pectin from CP Kelco makes jelly easier to spread on toast or English muffins, and it helps ensure fruit pieces are evenly distributed in jam. Prefer cereal? From classic dairy-based products and drinking yogurts to the ever-growing milk alternatives, our KELCOGEL® gellan gum, GENU® carrageenan and GENU® pectin add creaminess, protect protein and give them a smooth pour for great flavor from first to last sip. HuberCal® calcium carbonate from Huber Engineered Materials adds calcium to breakfast cereals and diet shakes.
If your beverage of choice is a fruit juice, juice drink or smoothie, chances are that one of these nature-based, renewable raw and clean label ingredients from CP Kelco was used to help reduce sugar, suspend and stabilize pH: KELTROL® xanthan gum, CEKOL® cellulose gum, SIMPLESSE® microparticulated whey protein concentrate or KELCOGEL® gellan gum.
Need caffeine to jump-start the day? Many iced coffee drinks use GENU® carrageenan or CEKOL® cellulose gum for a smooth mouthfeel and to prevent ingredients like cocoa from settling to the bottom.
Time for lunch
Salad for lunch? Huber can help with your salad dressing. KELTROL xanthan gum keeps the herbs and seasonings suspended in Italian and other vinaigrette dressings. KELCOGEL gellan gum improves the consistency of ranch dressing.
For deli sandwiches, GENU carrageenan enhances the consistency and juiciness of sliced meat.
Or maybe you’re grabbing a yogurt for a quick, on-the-go snack. GENU pectin and KELCOGEL gellan gum give it a smooth, creamy texture and add stability to the fruit at the bottom without the need for added preservatives.
What’s for dinner?
Fire up the grill and throw some sausages on—ones with CEKOL cellulose gum as part of the casing to help them keep their shape and let smoky flavors permeate.
Huber products go great with grilled foods. GENU pectin and KELTROL xanthan gum can be found in BBQ sauce and relish, ensuring that the first squeeze from the bottle is just as good as the last.
Go ahead and top your burger with a slice of cheese. Our GENU refined locust bean gum gives it creaminess and meltability.
Leave room for dessert
Everyone loves dessert, and you’ll love it more because of Huber. GENU pectin and KELCOGEL gellan gum help to put the yum in yummy jelly beans, fruit leathers and caramels. We also take the cake, driving confection perfection in fondants and pastes. Did someone say pie? Count on us for excellent bake stability in fruit pie fillings, too. How about some ice cream? We ensure your ice cream and dairy dessert stay smooth, thick and creamy with GENULACTA® carrageenan, GENU pectin, KELGUM® and KELTROL xanthan gums, and CEKOL cellulose gum.
Or, for a lower calorie option, SIMPLESSE helps ice cream keep its rich texture while lowering its fat content.
On the lighter side, GENUGEL® carrageenan is a vegan gelatin alternative to give panna cotta, mousse and other jiggly desserts their terrific form and melt-in-your-mouth texture.
