The increasing importance of the environmental footprint and turn to natural products provide Lutkala with an obvious advantage over the other thickeners. Even the production of pectins obtained from plant-based raw materials, such as apples or citruses, is a process which requires using many chemical raw materials. Moreover, this process generates large amounts of wastewater, so it has a negative impact on the environment.
The production of Lutkala is conducted through purely physical processes, during which water is not used, so no wastewater is generated.
We can also proudly state that both our production processes and our products are “zero waste”, because we use pomaces, pulps and other residues from fruit processing, moreover, we do not generate any waste.
Our natural thickener is GMO-free. This is currently a controversial subject of public debate, as well as one of important factors taken into consideration by consumers.
