Toine Janssen, CEO Isobionics says: "Our natural Valencene Pure(TM) is a real breakthrough since we're the first company in the world that has succeeded in bringing this natural ingredient to the market. To accomplish this we use a proprietary fermentation process. The new product was developed from a patent into a commercial product within three years."

Market excited about Valencene Pure(TM)
Customers for Valencene Pure(TM) are found in the food, beverage, flavor and fragrance industry worldwide, where it is used in soft drinks, detergents, soap and fine perfumery. These companies have responded enthusiastically to Isobionics' introduction of this breakthrough product.
Valencene is traditionally extracted in low amounts from oranges. Therefore, quality, quantity and price of conventional valencene may vary, depending on harvest conditions. For the production of valencene enormous quantities of oranges are required. Valencene Pure(TM) takes these problems away. It is a natural product with odor and taste similar to valencene from oranges. Valencene Pure(TM) comes with a high purity and a constant quality and availability. In addition, the product is free from insecticides and is environmentally friendly.
Isobionics focuses its activities on flavor and fragrance ingredients. These are prepared in a proprietary biotechnological way, for example fermentation processes, resulting in natural final products. Isobionics is located at the Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen (the Netherlands).
Valencene Pure(TM) is a trade mark of Isobionics B.V.
