Food & Beverage
Our product line provides a variety of solutions for the food and beverage industry, including ingredients used for FDA-approved food contact packaging material and sanitizers for food contact surfaces; ingredients that enhance texture or flow; food emulsifiers and food additives such as energy supplements or digestive agents. Our selection of food additives includes:
Hydrogenated Tallow Glyceride
Tallow is the term for the fat derived from the fatty tissue of cattle and sheep. Hydrogenated tallow glycerides are created by adding hydrogen to tallow glycerides. When used as a food additive, hydrogenated tallow glycerides act as a softening agent.
Acme-Hardesty features hydrogenated tallow glycerides in flake and non-deodorized form and packaged in bags or liquid bulk. Hydrogenated tallow glyceride’s shelf life is two years from the date of manufacture.
Calcium stearate is a white, odorless powder produced by heating calcium oxide and stearic acid. The food and beverage industry uses calcium stearate primarily as a food emulsifier and food surfactant, as well as a flow agent in certain types of candies.
Our calcium stearate offerings include tallow- and vegetable-based products sold in white powder form and are free of any residual solvents. We package calcium stearate in bags, super-sacks and 50# bags.
Propylene Glycol USP
Propylene glycol is a clear, colorless liquid produced from propylene oxide. Propylene glycol exhibits a faint and odor and features a somewhat sweet taste. One of the many industrial applications of propylene glycol is as a humectant to prevent the loss of moisture. Acme-Hardesty is your source for a 99.5 percent pure propylene glycol product packages in drums, liquid bulk and five-gallon pails with a shelf life of one year from the date of manufacture.
Triple Pressed Stearic Acid (TPSA)
TPSA is a versatile, renewable long-chain fatty acid that can be vegetable- or tallow-based. Food and beverage manufacturers use TPSA as a food additive for hardening candies and serving as a mold-release agent in hard and pressed candy products. Acme-Hardesty offers TPSA in various grades and forms including liquid, beads and flakes. Packaging options include bags, super-sacks, isotanks and liquid bulk.
