Novel humectant to control water activity of oil/water emulsions

Request Number 190150 | Author Mondelēz International


We are looking for a humectant which is as effective as glycerol or more to control the water activity of oil/water emulsions.  It should ideally be tasteless, colourless and give the same textural properties as glycerol.


With an increase in the well-being awareness of our consumers, we would like to be able to offer low-sugar fillings, ideally as an emulsion.  For this to succeed the water activity needs to be controlled adequately to ensure food safety during shelf-life.

Key Success Criteria
  • High water activity control ingredient
  • Food grade
  • Label-friendly (customer-acceptable)
  • Neutral flavour
Possible Approaches

Novel ingredient combinations with synergistic effects

What We Aren't Interested In
  • Glycerol
  • Salts
  • Polyols
  • Sugars
Preferred Collaboration types

At this stage, we're open to various types of mutually-beneficial partnerships.
