|Reduce R&D time, increase speed-to-market: Predictive micro modeling in today’s food industry
Corbion delivers food and beverage ingredients to enhance freshness, taste & safety. In addition, we spend a significant amount of R&D time in making our knowledge and research data available to our customers. In doing so, Corbion helps its customers speed up their R&D processes and thus time-to-market for new product development.
One way of making knowledge accessible to our customers is by generating models on the use of Corbion ingredients in a food product. A unique example is Corbion’s Listeria Control Model, which is widely used by meat processors across the globe to predict how long Listeria will be inhibited in a particular meat product. This model is based on over two decades of work on Listeria inhibition, both in broth model systems and in a variety of meat products and has become the industry standard. In addition, Corbion offers various other online models and calculators for beverages (mineral fortification) and confectionery (sugar inversion).
