AB Mauri “Exclusive Distribution Partner” – US & Canada.
KFSU LTD has appointed AB Mauri North America as our Exclusive Distribution Partner for the United States and Canada.
AB Mauri – a global leader in baking technology, fermentation science and ingredient solutions – will service the Baking and Animal Nutrition markets with our industrial product, Phytocel™.
This partnership represents a true alignment into the major sectors currently being serviced with Phytocel and allows the wider baking manufacturer, distributor and retailer audience access to the product and superior technical support behind it.
To many, Phytocel serves as an introduction to a new ingredient allowing customers to manage water migration, batch yield, product volume and cost savings. Additionally, it can be added to any recipe across mainstream and gluten-free baking, including breads, wraps, tortillas or even sweet goods. As a whole plant product, Phytocel allows users to optimize their labels by including a clean label ingredient.

Naturally Good Expo-Sydney May 2016
Great interest was shown by the many potential customers who connected with us at this recent Expo. The Naturally Good Expo has dobled in size in 12 months and looks like being a key way for KFSU to create awareness about Phytocel.

“Bread and Gluten Free product manufacturers have been impressed with the trial information and a number are considering local trials, which could lead to sales”. Tom Derricks-Marigold
Great Trial Results
Recent Gluten free trials in the US by KFSU’s Distributor Marigold Inc have shown that the inclusion of Phytocel at <1% in Gluten free premixes gives cost saving as well as improvements in taste, texture and shelf life.
KFSU has secured a FIAL grant (Food Innovation Australia Limited) of $25,000 to perform a larger trial with Phytocel with the Qld Department of Primary Industries and an Australian Pre-mix company. This will be an expanded version of the US trials aimed at the Australian and Japanese markets.
The successful completion of these trials in late May will give KFSU LTD scientific evidence that not only can potential customers save in product costs (utilising Phytocel in Gluten free breads) but it gives their products a significant improvement in taste and texture as well as shelf life.
Costs less, tastes better with Phytocel- our customers will like the sound of that.
Ongoing trials with technology suppliers and customers is confirming continuing success in productivity gains in beef patties as well as flavour texture and juiciness improvement with blind taste testing.
Phytocel in Japan
KFSU’s distributor in Japan “Unitec” has two confirmed customers since they came on board.
Phytocel being showcased at the IFIA Japan (International Food Ingredients & Additives Exhibition and Conference) as part of the Unitec stand.
Unitec and KFSU are working closely with each other with product development and Unitec are eagerly waiting for the results from The Qld Department of Primary Industry trial results to utilise in the Japanese Gluten free space. It is the fastest growing segment in Baking in Japan.
Another Phytocel success as an ingredient to solve a product problem!
Unitec has recently had success with Phytocel with a customer in the Bento lunch box market. A Phytocel inclusion has shown to assist with oil and water bleed from fried foods.
Ongoing orders from Australian business
“We have recently confirmed forward orders of Phytocel for the next 2 years from a business in the health foods space in Australia. This business has huge upscale potential”. Gordon Edwards, Managing Director
