Food Additives

EMULSIFIERS

Emulsifiers are used in chocolate, ice cream, and processed fats such as margarine, providing them with a variety of features. Acting to bind water and oil which are not miscible under normal circumstances, emulsifiers fulfill roles such as emulsifying fats, controlling bubble formation, and making foods more palatable. They also act on substances such as starch and proteins to modify functions such as age inhibition, on fats through crystallization control (growth promotion, crystallization inhibition), and also function to improve shape retention. Since first brought a food emulsifier on the Japanese market in 1952, Taiyo Kagaku has continued to provide exceptional emulsifiers to food manufacturers in Japan and the other countries around the world for half a century.

STABILIZERS

Roles of thickener/stabilizer include improving the flavor of food and drink products with a large water content such as beverages and desserts, as well as manufacturing-based quality stabilization and increasing preservation stability. They are largely based on natural ingredients such as legumes and seaweed, and used across the entire range of food products. Taiyo Kagaku pushes on development according to their applications.

Products The Amla berry is known as the Indian ayurvedic superfruit. In spite of its novelty on this side of the ocean, Amla fruit is not actually a new discovery—in fact, it boasts a wide margin of seniority over sliced bread. It is the single most mentioned fruit in Ayurveda, an ancient traditional system of medicine indigenous to India for the last 5,000 years. Long before it has been branded a “super fruit,” the Amla fruit has been prized for its ability to revive, rejuvenate and balance the entire body. It is obvious, considering that the Amla fruit is bursting with an impressive concentration of antioxidants, and a powerful combination of vitamins, polyphenols, minerals, amino acids and dietary fiber.

Products Cranberries are used against cystitis as they have been valued for their nutritional and medicinal properties for a long time. The cranberry (Latin Vaccinium macrocarpon) is small, round and bright red. The red berry is native to northeaster America and is cultivated extensively. The pulp is firm, crisp and sour. It is mostly consumed as dried fruit and usually sugar is added to mask the sour taste. Fresh cranberries are rich in vitamins C, B6, K, provitamin A, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, sodium, folic acid and especially phytochemicals such as polyphenols and anthocyanins. Since the 17th century, the berry has been used to relieve gastric distress, liver problems and intestinal diseases. Nowadays, cranberry products are widely used to treat urinary tract infections. Especially cranberry juice or juice powder is very effective as it mostly contains the soluble PACs (proanthocyanin). Taiyo Cranberry Products:

Products Fibers (dietary fiber, more rarely non-nutritive carbohydrates) are largely indigestible dietary constituents, mostly carbohydrates, which occur predominantly in plant foods. They are found mainly in cereals, fruits, vegetables, legumes and in small quantities in milk. For the sake of simplicity, one divides the fiber into water-soluble (such as locust bean gum, guar, pectin and dextrin’s) and water-insoluble (for example, cellulose). Dietary fiber is now, quite differently than the name suggests, as an important part of the human diet. The EU Nutrition Labelling Regulation gives them a gross calorific value of 2kcal /g. Dietary fiber increases satiety and affect the carbohydrate metabolism for example by lowering fasting and postprandial blood glucose concentrations. By increasing the binding and excretion of bile acids, fiber can lower the cholesterol concentration and thus the risk of coronary heart disease. Due to their water-binding capacity, they increase the viscosity of the chyme and the stool weight. Thus, dysfunction of the intestine, such as constipation, can be prevented with a high intake of dietary fiber. Taiyo Fiber Products:

Products Unroasted coffee powder appears to be found in the food supply dating back as far as 850 AD. Raw coffee beans were consumed in Africa already in 1000 AD. The tribes just ate the raw dried beans. They coated them in animal fat and gave them to their warriors for much needed energy during battles or hunt. Coffee beans are often roasted today, but there is still huge consumption of the raw green beans. It is known that the beans can be chewed in the raw green form. This is known to give energy and was used as ancient medicine for bowel issues. Raw and unroasted green coffee beans are rich in fiber, acids and other micronutrients that offer many health benefits. Green Coffee Powder can be added to food as a natural energy booster and organic source of caffeine. Taiyo Green Coffee Powder Products:

Products Green tea comes from the tea leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. The leaves are not fermented or heated like black tea leaves and therefor green tea contains a lot of chlorophyll, antioxidants and polyphenols. When tea plants were discovered, tea was first just used as medicine and only grew later into a beverage. The plant is known from the Chinese medicine a long time ago. It is not sure, if tea was discovered by a Chinese King, Sheng Nong (nearly 3000 B.C.) or if it was originating from India and spread through Buddhism. From there it could have been brought to China, Korea and Japan. But according to the first document about tea, the origin has to be in China or India. Green tea contains a great spectrum of valuable active substances. The health benefits of green tea extract are mostly due to its high antioxidant content. Antioxidants can help reduce oxidative stress by fighting cell damage caused by free radicals. This cell damage is associated with aging and several diseases. Polyphenol antioxidants called catechins comprise the majority of green tea extract’s antioxidant content. Among the catechins in green tea, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is the most researched and thought to provide the most health benefits. Green tea extract boosts antioxidant capacity, which may help prevent various health problems caused by oxidative stress. Taiyo Green Tea Products:

Products Normally instant tea powder contains just the dehydrated flavour, aroma and colour compounds found in tea leaves. But “real” and healthy instant tea is made of green tea extract, so it contains all the natural flavour of the whole green tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis plant. These instant teas contain all polyphenols and catechins found in green tea. This kind of tea is well suited for a quick preparation and it is sometimes called soluble tea as the powder easily dissolves in water (hot or cold). Taiyo Instant Tea Products:

Products Iron takes over an important function during the transport and the storage of oxygen, during the transfer of electrons as well as numerous oxidation and reduction reactions in the human body. Iron is a part of the red blood pigment haemoglobin which transports the oxygen through the blood. As a cofactor of many enzymes, iron is involved in the cellular energy production, the synthesis of neurotransmitters, unsaturated fatty acids, DNA and liver detoxification. Iron deficiency is a widespread nutrient deficiency and mostly women are affected. An iron deficiency can cause chronic fatigue, low blood pressure and palpable skin. Iron pyrophosphate is a non-ion iron form which is not absorbed through ion channels as other ion-based minerals. Therefore, it does not compete with other minerals and guarantees a higher bioavailability. It has no metallic taste and it does not change product properties. Taiyo Iron Products:

Products Green tea, prepared from the Camellia sinensis plant, has been consumed since ancient times for its calming influence. Modern research has looked into this “ancient wisdom” and revealed that L-theanine, an amino acid found almost exclusively in green tea, has specific and positive effects on the brain and nervous system, especially the promotion of relaxation without drowsiness. L-theanine is a naturally stirring non-proteomic amino acid found almost solely in tea plants, and it’s the main component responsible for the exotic taste called “umami” of green tea. L-Theanine is also responsible for producing the feeling of relaxation after drinking of green tea. It is also known to support the neurological function and brain activities.

Products The green Matcha powder coming from the tea plant camellia sinensis, the Chinese tea plant, is today one of the most popular tea types of the world. The long-forgotten and rediscovered plant was brought to Japan 800 years ago by Japanese monks from China to Japan. Japan brought the Matcha tea plant to a renewed glory whereas this tradition was forgotten in China at the same time. The monks in Japan used the tea traditionally to stay focused and calm while meditating. Due to its outstanding ingredients, Matcha has also been used as a remedy and is now regarded as a superfood all over the world. Only if the green tea leaves have been grinded into very small particles, the tea can be called Matcha. Matcha is therefore consumed as powder and while drinking the tea all healthy ingredients are absorbed by the body. In the course of the 16th century, the traditional preparation of the Matcha Tea developed into a ritual procedure, which was regarded as a sign of special education and a cultured lifestyle in Japan. Even today the tea ceremony is considered a kind of ritualized time-out, and although it is consumed mainly in Japan, it became more and more popular in Europe and all over the world.

All Concepts SUNFIBER® COLA – THE FIRST FUNCTIONAL COLA WITH ENERGY 4.0 EFFECT TARGET OF THE PRODUCT Jointly developed by natural ingredient experts, Taiyo, the German soft drink producer Sinalco and the German sweetener experts Sweethouse. Sunfiber® Cola is a functional soft drink with caffeine that’s sugar free and enriched with dietary fiber. Owing to its high fiber and low-calorie status, it contributes to a healthy diet and supports weight management. Taiyo’s Sunfiber® is derived from the Indian guar bean, a member of the legume family, and is therefore 100 % natural. Importantly, the dietary fiber is absolutely tasteless, odorless and water-soluble, so it doesn’t adversely affect the taste, mouthfeel or appearance of the end product. Sunfiber® is fermented by bacteria in the large intestine. This fermentation leads to a production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA), which are absorbed by the mucosa and have a satiating and appetite-inhibiting effect. Dietary fiber and SCFA are activating and enzyme in the body called AMPK which is producing ATP, the cellular energy fuel for all our cells. Dietary fibers are therefore stimulating the enzymatic energy production in the body called Energy 4.0. As confirmed in a crossover study, the drink can increase fiber uptake and reduce calorie intake. As a result, it has been shown that the consumption of Sunfiber®-containing beverages significantly increases the feeling of satiety and reduces the energy intake of the next meal by 70 – 100 calories. Taiyo’s partner, Sinalco, contributed the basic recipe of its popular cola drink and the sweetening concept was developed by Sweethouse HEALTH BENEFITS Sugar-free Very low calories Fiber enriched Delicious taste of a normal cola Sugar like sweetness and mouthfeel Increases Satiety Decreases Hunger Decreases Food Intake Reduces Energy Intake Supports weight management
