The DuPont™ Danisco® range of emulsifiers perform many essential functions in your food products, such as stabilising emulsions, securing the right mouthfeel and product appearance, overcoming raw material variations and extending shelf life. Our emulsifiers are mainly sourced from vegetable oils, such as palm, soybean, rapeseed, sunflower, castor and coconut oil.
Palm oil is the most consumed vegetable oil globally. Its versatility and high yielding, giving 4 to 10 times more vegetable oil per hectare than other oils, makes it an efficient raw material. Oil palm trees grow in regions with high biodiversity, and is an important source of livelihoods for smallholders.
Sustainability is central to the way we source and work with suppliers worldwide. As a leading company in the specialty ingredient sector, we are committed to drive improvement in our palm oil supply chain and to transform the wider palm oil sector.
We have been a member of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) since its founding in 2004. The RSPO initiative aims to transform markets to make sustainable palm oil the norm, protecting human rights, forest & biodiversity, while promoting good governance & transparency.
DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences is a pioneer in offering environment-friendly and socially-responsible sourced palm based ingredients. Already in 2017, we made the switch to 100% certified sustainable palm oil and palm oil derivatives globally using a combination of Segregated, Mass Balance and Book and Claim.
