At VEDEQSA INC, achieving full satisfaction of our customers’ needs is nothing less than the main focus of our daily effort.

That is why we carry out an important R+D+I activity, which allows us to foresee convenient and sustainable solutions, all of them carefully adapted to each area of the food and cosmetic sector

High antimicrobial capacity

High activity against a wide spectrum of microorganisms: gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, yeast and fungi. There is no resistance effect, it is effective over a wide pH range and it is chemically stable in every food matrix. It disrupts the cell membrane and has an effect in the cell cytoplasm.

Safe for humans

Its particular chemical structure allows that, once ingested, it is hydrolyzed to common natural endogenous substances in humans (lauric acid, arginine, ornithine, CO2).

No toxicity in food

No toxicity at doses of use, supported by multiple toxicological studies conducted in Huntingdon Life Sciences and other institutions (CSIC, University of Barcelona, SafePharm, ABC Research, EVIC, NOTOX, CIDASAL). It does not alter the product’s organoleptic features and it is resistant to all heat treatments (boiling, UHT, pasteurization).
