Expanding its facility in Dolton will allow Corbion to produce propylene glycol monoesters (PGME) emulsifiers that are used in sweet goods, bakery mixes and other applications, the company said June 8. Corbion expects to have PGME systems on the market in the second quarter of 2017.

Corbion already offers emulsifiers for bread.

“The addition of PGME to the portfolio means Corbion will possess all the necessary building blocks to produce a sweet goods portfolio that matches the breadth of solutions we currently offer to the bread market segment,” says Jim Robertson, global product manager, emulsifiers.
