Functionality, Sustainability, Naturalness. Every product we market as vegetable fibre or oil meal flower has to fulfil these three criteria.
Without functionality nowadays a food ingredient cannot be marketed any more. Even if it is actually a food product. Sustainability is FST’s mission – no product will make its way into our assortment unless it is sustainable. Without naturalness sustainability is not credible. Hence it is so important to us that all our products are being manufactured using only technologies that any future law – once passed – will define as natural.
We are only using technologies, even the consumer would recognise as being natural. Mechanically pressing juice or oil, drying and milling by physical means only. Employing these processes, we do not use any processing aids or carriers, let alone chemical additives. We do not use enzymes or micro-organisms, avoid and form of radiation and we make sure that there is no GMO in the value chain at any point.
Also of utmost importance to us: A sustainable FST product is always from the edible part of the plant. And this is something, unfortunately, that is no longer the case with many ingredients. Even though sometimes, the name of these ingredients indicates differently.
