Innophos Holdings, a specialty phosphates producer, will expand its Nashville, Tennessee, facility to produce the leavening acid CAL-RISE. The company will invest $4.5 million in the project.
"Changes in marketing trends, specifically those resulting from sodium reduction throughout the food industry, have contributed to increased demand for Innophos' calcium-based leavening products. CAL-RISE® is a unique leavening acid which allows manufacturers of baked goods to reach up to a 25 percent reduction in sodium levels, and at the same time add much needed calcium in a cost-effective manner," said Joseph Golowski, vice president of Specialty Phosphates Business.
The expansion will double the facility's current manufacturing capabilities. It is scheduled for completion by the middle of 2011.
