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 which naturally occurs in the cell walls of plants such as rice or maize. As a precursor, ferulic acid is a ubiquitous and readily available substance that shares high structural similarity to vanillin and can be naturally released by a combination of physical and enzymatic processes which fully meet EU and US natural flavor regulations.
