CRANBURY, N.J., June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Innophos Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: IPHS), a leading international producer of performance-critical and nutritional specialty ingredients, with applications in food, beverage, pharmaceutical, oral care and industrial end markets, today announced that it has received regulatory approval from Health Canada to sell Cal-Rise® into Canadian markets for use in food products.
Cal-Rise® is a unique, slow acting, calcium based chemical leavening agent, specifically designed to reduce overall sodium content in baked goods, while maintaining the same taste profile and functionality that the baking industry has come to expect from traditional sodium based leavenings, such as SAPP 28.
"With Cal-Rise®, we are able to offer an excellent solution for baked good producers to economically reduce sodium content without affecting the consumer's perception of taste," commented Birkin Weith, Business Manager of leavening products at Innophos. "We are excited about the acceptance of this product in Canada, which allows us to introduce Cal-Rise® to yet another market as a valuable solution to sodium reduction efforts."
Cal-Rise® has been commercialized in over 20 new products in 2011 alone across several geographies including the United States, Europe, and Asia Pacific, covering a diverse product range including baking powders, pancakes, waffles, cakes mixes, tortillas and crackers.
Canadian bakers interested in Cal-Rise® or other leavening phosphates from Innophos should contact Jack Vedder, Account Manager, Canada, at (416) 920-9233 or John Brodie, Technical Service Manager, Bakery, at (609) 366-1235.
