Clinical and infant nutrition

You work to improve the lives of those with specific nutritional needs. You can provide patients with safe and improved eating and drinking experiences and deliver products with fibres that help support patients’ digestive and immune health. You need to provide infant formulas and toddler milk that are nutritious and mothers can trust. With 20 years of service to this market, Ingredion offers a range of ingredients, manufactured under stringent specifications that exceed microbiology and contaminant standards.

Across the world, we have extensive experience in developing clinical and infant formulations that adhere to stringent regulatory requirements. Through Ingredion Idea Labs innovation centres, we also connect you to science-based problem solving and product innovation on a global scale. Our experienced innovation network can help you bring quality, safe products to these very important consumers.

NUTRAFLORA® soluble fibre, for example, helps increase the level of good bacteria in the gut and is scientifically proven to support digestive and immune health[1]. It is one of the most effective soluble fibres on the market today.

With growing needs from health-compromised populations, we’re pushing the boundaries of ingredient science to find new answers in medical nutrition. Collaborate with us at Ingredion Idea Labs™ innovation centers to take these products to the next level.

In nutrition, we bring you a line of BIOLIGO® galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) ingredients with an oligosaccharide profile closer to that of human milk. These indigestible soluble fibres support the growth of beneficial bacteria in the colon and support healthy growth and development.

Our UNI-PURE® IMF series of allergen/gluten free texturisers are perfect for early life nutrition and allergen prevention. They make infant formulas less likely to be regurgitated and help our customers to differentiate their products.

ULTRA-SPERSE® IMF starch is a spray-dried and agglomerated starch that supports the anti-regurgitation effect and delivers a smooth texture.
