Company Description

CNI, Colloides Naturels International is the world's leading manufacturer and marketer of acacia gum and other specialty hydrocolloids. Colloides Naturels, Inc., headquartered in Bridgewater, NJ, is the U.S. subsidiary of Colloides Naturels International. For over 100 years, CNI has set the highest standards for product quality and led the industry in innovation. CNI was the innovator in spray drying acacia gum and the first to develop a commercial process for "instantizing" or agglomerating acacia gum for easier use. CNI currently operates the largest acacia gum manufacturing plant in the world. The combination of extensive manufacturing capacity with experienced raw material sourcing, delivers to customers a high degree of global supply assurance and traceability. Today, CNI has a major global presence with operations in over 75 countries, including its newest subsidiary in China.

Acacia gum is an all-natural hydrocolloid used in many food applications including beverages, emulsions, confectionery and nutritional products. Acacia gum provides technical functionality as an emulsifier, mouthfeel enhancer and film former while also providing an excellent source of soluble dietary fiber. CNI's acacia gum is FDA GRAS, GMO-free and is available with organic certification. CNI is basic in acacia gum and manages the entire acacia gum transformation process from harvesting of raw gum through to marketing of the finished gum, optimized for specific applications.

CNI has contributed to the development of new technologies, improving the functional performance of acacia gum, and continues to pursue new applications with added value such as its brand new Equacia[TM], an association of different fibers. CNI maintains a staff of hydrocolloids experts at its Global Research Center in Rouen, France and has invested in regional technical service labs including the new US lab in Bridgewater, New Jersey. Proprietary hydrocolloid blends also complement the CNI product line by combining the proven functionality of acacia gum with other hydrocolloids or other fibers.
