As the food needs of the world grow, the role of the chemical industry will increasingly find centre-stage, as the need to improve shelf life through pest and pathogen resistance, prevent oxidation and chemical damage, retain macro- and micro-nutrients and improve transport survival.
The food and beverage industry calls for a high degree of purity of its ingredients, especially essential oils, binders, additives, emulsifiers etc. At Surya Corporation, we represent the leading Principals in the field of Specialty Chemicals including bio-additives for foods, food stabilizers and super-critically extracted plant and vegetable extracts that retain their original flavour and aroma.
Food fortification to combat iron deficiency. Ferrazone, Ferric Sodium EDTA, an iron compound developed by Nouryon is continuing to gain widespread recognition for its effectiveness in helping to combat iron deficiency. Iron deficiency is the most widespread nutrition-related health problem in the world. As health experts call for a global effort to tackle the problem through the fortification of staple foods, Nouryon is providing a vital ingredient in the formula with its unique iron compound Ferrazone. Ferrazone proves to be much more effective than conventional forms of iron, many of which cannot be absorbed by the body. Ferrazone is a highly effective iron source in food fortification to combat iron deficiency anemia. Ferric Sodium EDTA is recommended by the World Health Organization as the preferred iron fortificant for wheat and maize flour. Furthermore Ferrazone can be used in drinks without development of any metallic taste and has been accepted for food use in nearly all countries worldwide.
What food applications can be fortified with Ferrazone?
Ferrazone can be used in many food products, but it is primarily used to fortify foods that are stored in dry form such as powdered beverages, candy bars and flour. Examples of flour-derived products are bread, biscuits and instant noodles. Coloured drinks and condiments, such as cola or soy sauce, and functional foods like fortified cereals or sport drinks are also good targets for iron fortification. Ferrazone can also be used in iron-containing food supplements under various forms (like syrups, sprays, tablets and powder sachets).
Available Ferrazone grades
|Ferrazone®||Food, beverages & supplements|
|Ferrazone® XF||Wheat & maize flour|
Trace heavy metals (e.g. copper, iron, manganese and zinc), present in all processed food products from raw materials, process water and process equipment, can react with ingredients present in processed food, resulting in several negative effects, like rancidity, discoloration and vitamin C degradation, which in turn have an effect on freshness and appearance. Solvitar™ forms a stable complex with the trace metal ions and prevents undesirable food spoilage reactions without influencing taste or quality. Solvitar™ is food-safe and improves freshness and appearance in food and beverages.
Solvitar is a food grade calcium EDTA complex and produced according to the most stringent regulations in Herkenbosch, the Netherlands. By adding Solvitar there are two types of unwanted reactions in food and beverages that can be controlled:
Norit GCN 1240 PLUS:

The result is that relative low dosing rate is required to meet the purification requirements. This will not only give economic benefits in terms of low activated carbon consumption but also in higher process yield. Norit DX ULTRA meets the requirements of the latest version of the U.S. Food Chemicals Codex. It is produced under the scope of a Quality Management System which complies with the requirements of CDX HACCP. The corresponding Certificate of Registration is available upon request.
Norit CN1 is very suitable for the purification of highly coloured and/or foaming process liquids, in applications requiring a carbon with a neutral reaction. Examples are the treatment of certain pH sensitive pharmaceuticals. Norit CN1 combines an excellent adsorptive capacity with excellent filtration characteristics. It is especially effective in adsorbing higher molecular weight organics such as dark colour bodies and proteins. Norit CN1 is produced by chemical activation using the phosphoric acid process.
Norit DARCO S-51 HF:
DARCO S-51HF is very suitable for purification of many food products, in particular starch based sweeteners and liquid sucrose solutions. DARCO S-51HF is an acid washed steam activated carbon with a high adsorptive capacity, a high purity and superior filtration characteristics. DARCO S-51HF meets the requirements of the latest version of the U.S. Food Chemicals Codex.
Norit CA1 is very suitable for the purification of highly coloured and/or foaming process liquids in food, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries.

Norit CASPF is produced by chemical activation using the phosphoric acid process.
NATURES PUREST range:
Prepared from the finest produce that are procured from selected farms. The extracts have been obtained using the latest Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SCFE) clean technology that uses recyclable carbon dioxide at high pressures asa GR EEN ORGANIC medium of extraction. (Generally Recognized As Safe by US FDA) This ensures retention of flavours, fragrances and active nutraceutical ingredients that are usually destroyed during conventional extraction process while minimizing microbiological load and increasing the shelf life of the product.
The supercritical process has three benefits when compared to traditional methods of extraction
NATURES EXTRACTS range:
This is a set of products that have been derived from natural sources like plants and vegetables, but have been further processed using methods of modern science. Since much of the goodness of plants exist in oil form, emulsifiers make them easier to mix into water and hence easier to use. Our products are made using permitted extraction processes and meet stringent norms as prescribed by the various regulatory organisations world over.
