Health and Safety


CJ CheilJedang uses healthier ingredients to deliver safe and reassuring products to customers and promotes
consumer’s health through the operation of a systematic and integrated food safety system. Furthermore, we
constantly ask ourselves the following questions: How can we provide sufficient nutrients through only processed
foods? What should we consider first at the raw material procurement stage to contribute to delivering healthy
finished products? How can we implement our stringent integrated food safety system globally? In searching for
the answers, we have found ways to offer healthier and safer products. Going forward, CJ CheilJedang will
continue our endeavors to create safe and healthy products and deliver them to you from nature.

2020 KEY


Developing Differentiated Products that
Take into Account Health and Nutrition

Establishment of systematic Nutrition Guidelines

Establishment of the CJ Nutrition Criteria

To help improve the dietary habits of consumers by providing
healthy processed foods, CJ CheilJedang established the CJ
Nutrition Criteria a set of nutritional standards for each product
category. The CJ Nutrition Criteria identified major categories from
our product portfolio and established the upper limit for energy
(calories) and the five nutrients (fat, saturated fat, trans fat, sugar,
and sodium), of which excessive consumption may damage health.
We will not only continuously assess the nutritional quality of our
products based on these guidelines, but we also use them for
designing nutritional structures when developing new products
for the future. Furthermore, we intend to establish and implement
a strategy for improving the nutritional quality of products and
thereby contribute to consumer health. We remain committed to
fulfilling our social responsibility.

Establishment of the CJ Nutrition Criteria

Operation of the KNS-Affiliated External
Advisory Committee

CJ CheilJedang has established and is operating its External Advisory
Committee in affiliation with the KNS (The Korean Nutrition Society)
as a means of securing the fair nutrition criteria and policies that
the company is striving to define. KNS is a domestic organization
with reliable authority in nutritional science. The External Advisory
Committee began operation in 2019. The committee annually selects
meeting agendas and hosts three regular meetings as well as lower-
level meetings for specific areas. CJ CheilJedang strives to collect
various opinions from external experts in the establishment and
operation of its health and nutritional strategies. Through this effort,
we aim to ensure objectivity and build consumer trust.

asteNrich® meets the “Clean Label*” requirements. Also, processed foods using TasteNrich® can be certified as “Clean Label Foods”. More
than 100 companies from 31 countries, such as large spice sauce companies and food companies in North America, are using TasteNrich®. For
domestic products, it is used in SPAM Mild, which has 25% less sodium content than the original product, and several bibigo products. bibigo

Features, Applications

FlavorNrich™ Master C, the World’s First
Natural Cysteine Produced without Electrolysis

FlavorNrich™ Master C, the frst Natural Cysteine Produced without
Electrolysis FlavorNrichTM Master C is the world’s first natural
cysteine for vegans, and meets the growing natural trend in
the food industry. Cysteine is a functional amino acid with anti-
oxidation, detoxing, and skin-regen-erating effects. It is widely
used in functional foods, pharmaceutical ingredients, additives for
animal feeds, and as part of ingredients that add meat flavor. While
most companies that produce cyste-ine extract it from animal fur or
Electrolysis technology, CJ CheilJedang is the only company that
successfully manufactures 3rd-generation cysteine using a microbe
fermentation method.

The Evolution of the Cysteine Method

BIOTECTOR, the Feed Additive that
Eliminates Harmful Bacteria in Livestock

BIOTECTOR is the world’s first bacteriophage cocktail feed additive
that helps remove harmful bacteria from the digestive systems of
livestock. It prevents contamination and infection from Salmonella
, thereby controlling livestock disease and fostering the healthy
and safe growth of animals. We have improved the product to provide
more powerful prevention against bacterial diseases, and through
continuing R&D, replace antibiotics and reduce infection of


A feed enzyme that promotes
livestock nutrition

Feed enzymes enhance the digestibility of livestock and benefits
to growth. Owing to increased meat consumption and increased
demand for feed, feed enzymes are in the spotlight not only for
their usefulness in improving livestock health but also for their
potential for production costs. CJ CheilJedang acquired Youtell in
2019 and grafted CJ know-how in bacterial strains and process and
fermentation technology with Youtell’s enzyme technology.
To strengthen our competitiveness for future enzyme products, and
expand our sales into APAC and other target regions. We are actively
researching on product improvement and formulation.
