All the ingredients of innovation
In the hands of our experts, materials harvested from nature are transformed to solve product formulation challenges across a wide range of industries. Our solutions toolbox contains both the familiar and exotic core materials of maize, potato, tapioca, rice, sago, stevia, quillaia, pulses and lactose. We apply three key processes to create new ingredients that make your products perform exactly as you wish.
- Physical modification
- Chemical modification
- Enzyme modification
Partnering with nature
Consider pure and simple ingredients from nature. How can a leaf deliver sweetness? What intrinsic power of plant starch makes it thicken liquids and lighten solids? We help you do more with these ingredients than ever—to satisfy consumers who seek a connection to nature in the things they eat, drink, lather in their hair, smooth on their skin or use in their homes.
We have been propelling clean label innovation for more than 20 years with our NOVATION® functional native starches—bringing you great textures and the processing benefits of traditional modified starches.
Today you have more ways to make simple into simply delicious. Our new line of pulse proteins and flours enables you to create protein- and fibre-rich products that are vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free.
Another example of a simple ingredient at work is quillaia extract, from which we developed our high-efficiency Q-NATURALE® emulsifier. Quillaja emulsifiers function differently from standard emulsifiers used in the beverage industry, allowing higher flavour oil loads, elimination of weighting agents and manufacturing efficiencies. We call it “nature’s perfect emulsifier".
With more than 100 years of experience and a relentless passion for discovery, we invite you to join us in using our expanding portfolio of clean and simple ingredients to improve quality of life—one great product at a time.
