Answering the call for nutrition benefits.

Consumer trends in nutrition and health inspire our solutions at the Ingredion Idea Labs™ innovation centres. You can trace our offerings in fibre, resistant starch and protein, for example, to global demand for digestive health, weight maintenance and added protein solutions. We make it easy for you to make products that answer consumer demands.

Our approach to nutrition has deep roots in  science and is focused on peak performance. With Ingredion, you can be confident in your nutritional claims and build consumer trust in your products, whether you are addressing ‘nutrition plus’ challenges in energy or weight management, ‘nutrition minus’ challenges in sugar or fat reduction or helping sensitive populations such as infants and the elderly get the nourishment they need.    

Driving nutrition innovation

Through the Nutrition innovation springboard of the Ingredion Idea Labs™ innovation centres, we begin and end with the consumer. By commissioning proprietary studies and surveys, we understand precisely what nutrition goals consumers hope to meet through the foods and beverages they purchase. We analyse how they respond to specific health claims on labels.

Armed with reliable insights, our experts then explore where we need to expand our robust portfolio of nature-based novel and proprietary ingredients, including prebiotic and soluble fibres, resistant starches, prebiotic oligosaccharides and more.

If you need help with nutritional product development now, our experts will work with you to develop prototypes for clinical study use. Ask for close, confidential collaboration with our nutritionists to validate the claims that will differentiate your products in the market, and rely on our regulatory expertise to align your product with local requirements.

We will perfect your enriched food or beverage formulation to make sure  it offers taste and texture as appealing as a traditional one. When your on-trend nutritional benefits are delivered in great-tasting yogurts,  snack bars, smoothies, chewable vitamins and much more, you win in the market.

Here’s more detail on how we’re helping you address the challenges inherent in nutrition trends today.

Clean and simple

People associate clean and simple labels with healthier eating. With our natural ingredient solutions, you can deliver wholesome foods and beverages that meet clean label and provide extra nutrition.

Reduce sugar

Look to our wide portfolio reduced-sugar and -calorie solutions—including stevia-based sweeteners, including BESTEVIA® Reb M, ENLITEN® Fusion range and ENLITEN® Reb A stevia. You can count on a high-quality and consistent supply of our high-intensity, nature-based sweeteners.

Gluten-free

With our wide range of functional flours, fibres, resistant starches, pulses and starches, you can meet the ever-growing trend for gluten-free foods. Choose from clean label ingredients, such as our HOMECRAFT® flours. Create gluten free flour replacement systems. 

Or select a modified solution, such as PRECISA® Bake modified food starches, which offer remarkable texture and, as one bulk ingredient system, can eliminate the need for several other ingredients.

Digestive health

Our range of fibre offerings, including soluble fibres, as well as resistant starches and insoluble fibres, help support digestive health and can be easily incorporated into bars, snacks, refrigerated beverages, dairy products, cereals and supplements.

Early life nutrition

You can put parents at ease with our BIOLIGO™ galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) ingredients, which nutritionally mimic human milk in support of healthy growth and development. Our ULTRA-SPERSE™ IMF series instant texturisers have a low protein content to make infant formulas easier to swallow.
