Rhovanil® Natural: a Unique Natural Flavor Labeling

Rhovanil® Natural is a natural vanillin range that can be labeled as a Natural flavor according to both European and US stringent flavor regulations. Made from non-GMO raw materials, Rhovanil® Natural is obtained by bioconversion of ferulic acid, a natural organic product found in rice bran. It is the market reference for natural vanillin needs, as a complement and substitute of natural vanillin from vanilla beans which remain very limited worldwide and fluctuating in terms of quality & pricing levels.

A Leading non-GMO Natural Vanillin Solution

As vanilla bean production cannot cover the world's needs in vanillin and prices reach historic highs, Rhovanil® Natural becomes an excellent alternative or complement to natural flavorings: it is natural vanillin that meets both European regulation N°1334/2008 on flavorings (article 16) and US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 21CFR101.22(a)(3) natural labeling regulations, a key advantage for international food operators. The Rhovanil® Natural range is fully compliant with the most stringent flavorings regulations in the EU and in the US as a natural standard in the food industry, cost-competitive compared to vanilla bean extract. Also, Rhovanil® Natural CW has a very clean profile that is a one-to-one replacement for standard Rhovanil vanillin.

From Vanilla to Natural Vanillin

Today, vanilla bean production only covers 1% of the global demand for vanillin, so manufacturers have no choice but to use industrially-produced vanilla extract substitutes. But consumers are demanding natural ingredients and healthier products, and the food industry has to meet their expectations. Replacing artificial vanillin with a natural vanilla extract substitute is becoming a key competitive advantage. 

One of the most intensely studied and beneficial processes to obtain vanillin is the bioconversion of ferulic acid, a by-product of rice bran oil.
