The company's NuBAKEÆ line delivers the necessary functionality for baking products; Nu-FLACÆ is a flavor carrier that replaces maltodextrin or other carriers as a non-soluble plating substrate; and Nu-FLOWÆ effectively replaces silicone dioxide (and other synthetics) in systems requiring anti-caking or flow aids.
