DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products' Susterra propanediol has been approved by NSF International, The Public Health and Safety Company, for use as an ingredient in heat transfer fluids (HTX-1) with incidental food contact under its non-food compounds registration program.
"Our fluids customers have told us about the value of NSF certification to their customers. They clearly see the benefits of being able to offer products that couple performance with rapidly renewable resources. Now they are able to work with customers that require fluids certified for incidental food contact," says Joseph W. DeSalvo, marketing director -- DuPont Tate & Lyle.
Susterra propanediol is made from corn sugar. It offers fluid manufacturers and their customers an option that is 100% bio-based and performs up to the stringent standards of NSF.
