NSF registration helps food and beverage processors meet certifications


Waalwijk, the Netherlands, 25 September 2019 – Proviera® - Probiotics for Leather™, the 100% biodegradable solutions offered by Stahl, have been registered as being clean-labeled by public health and safety organization NSF.

The certification of ProSoak™, ProSpread™ and ProDegreaze™ means that food and beverage processors who use byproducts arising from the use of these solutions can now demonstrate that these byproducts qualify as being clean labeled.

The NSF registration underlines Stahl’s commitment to using responsible chemistry to improve the environmental impact of the products it helps to make. Proviera® - Probiotics for Leather™ replaces traditional chemicals in the beamhouse with 100% biodegradable probiotics. The NSF registration of ProSoak™, ProSpread™ and ProDegreaze™ helps food and beverage processors meet a range of certifications, including the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP).

NSF: clean-labeled products

Marcus Breulmann, Technical Manager at Stahl, explains why NSF registration is important for tanners and food and beverage processors: “Hide byproducts are typically used for other purposes, like the production of gelatin, and so end up in the food we eat as, for example, gummy bears, butter, whipping cream and even medicine capsules. It’s a foodstuff that can’t be replaced. For this reason, the raw materials used to make gelatin are clean-labeled to indicate that they are safe to use in the food and beverage industry. We are proud Proviera® passed the toxicology assessment and received NSF registration as it means that, besides sustainability, we can offer even more benefits to tanners and food and beverage processors.”

The products in the Proviera® - Probiotics for Leather™ family - ProSoak™, ProSpread™ and ProDegreaze™ - are now registered in the NSF White Book.
