Solutions from Nature


Welcome to Ajinomoto NaturalSpecialities.

Since 1947 we have gained a wide and strong expertise in the extraction and purification of botanicals and fermentation derived products.

Ajinomoto  NaturalSpecialities - a Business Line of Ajinomoto Omnichem - was initiated more than 60 years ago, and is specialized in extraction and purification of botanicals. Today we are one of the leading polyphenol producers in the world.

Ajinomoto OmniChem is a Belgian company belonging to the Ajinomoto group - world leader in amino acids.   


At Ajinomoto NaturalSpecialities our activities are structured around two main pillars:


Tannic Acid : we have been producing tannic acid (hydrolysable polyphenols also known as gallotannins) - since 1947 and have therefore a developed a leading and undisputed position on this market.
Gallotannins are used in various markets such as brewery, oenology, food flavours, textile and pharma.

Custom Extraction: we perform contract extraction and custom development of botanicals and fermentation broths for major players of the industry. This includes process development, joint product developments as well as industrial extraction and purification of ingredients for food, nutraceutical and cosmetics markets.

Our expertise also covers grape seed extracts (OmniVin) that are meant for wine and food markets.
