What is the Clean Label?
The Clean Label is a concept almost exclusively used in an industrial setting. From the consumer’s point of view, calling a product Clean Label, is a guarantee of more naturalness, health and transparency in the production process. It is a philosophy adopted by food producers which enables people who want to take care of themselves and their health to achieve this very simply. It is also the best way for food producers to gain the trust of their consumers every day by investing more and more in positive and sincere communication.
It should be noted, however, that the notion of Clean Label is not currently defined from a regulatory point of view.
. Indeed, there are no clearly defined specifications such as can be found, for example, in the context of an organic approach.
This is why manufacturers must be inventive in order to validate the Clean Label concept. They can rely on several elements:
The Clean Label approach for an industrialist
The Clean Label is a generic industrial term which makes it possible to set up communication and reformulation procedures for products. In order to register a product as part of a Clean Label process, several steps can be taken. Indeed, in order to promote the naturalness of a product, one of the steps that the manufacturer can put in place is to offer a list of ingredients known to consumers. It is often said that a Clean Label product is formulated with ingredients that can be found in the consumer cupboard. By offering a list of ingredients that the consumer knows, the manufacturer wishing to register for a Clean Label approach must also eliminate artificial ingredients. On the contrary, it is beneficial to enrich your product with natural ingredients (superfoods, proteins, fruits & vegetables …).
The product thus modified will be much more suited to the current demand of consumers in search of sincerity.
Apart from the product itself, there are other aspects of an enterprise that can be part of a Clean Label approach. These include – importantly – using production processes that respect the integrity of the product. More broadly, a company anchored in an environmental approach and which acts in favour of the preservation of the planet and what lives there, is better able to claim a Clean Label approach.
Finally, if we were to retain the flagship values of an industrialist with a Clean Label approach, we would talk about transparency, ethics and authenticity.
Supporting our customers in improving their formulations and supporting them in their Clean Label approach is one of Eurial I&N’s ambitions.
To respond to this, our R&D team are working on protein solutions that can replace certain food additives.
