Tate & Lyle to Highlight Clean Label Concepts at IFT Food Expo.
Tate & Lyle will serve up food-truck-inspired fare that delivers on global flavor trends at the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Annual Meeting and Food Expo in Chicago, July 17-19 (booth #1248).
“This year, the IFT menu showcases our extensive portfolio of solutions for extraordinary eating experiences that are driven by global consumer demands,” said Luis Fernandez, Senior Vice President of Global Applications for Tate & Lyle. “We are thrilled to present this creative lineup during IFT’s hallmark event, where ideas are exchanged and innovations are introduced.”
These new creations feature innovative ingredients from Tate & Lyle’s broad portfolio to deliver outstanding results for food and beverage manufacturers and their consumers. The featured ingredients include the newly introduced CLARIA Delight tapioca-based starches and other texturants to help customers create sensory experiences that today’s consumers expect; sweetening solutions to achieve sugar and calorie reduction; and a diverse fiber portfolio that helps manufacturers create “better for you” products.”
Tate & Lyle introduces an extension of its innovative line of CLARIA Functional Clean-Label Starches, CLARIA Delight tapioca-based starches. Launched at the IFT Food Expo this year, CLARIA Delight starches enable manufacturers to formulate products with cleaner labels while maintaining excellent taste, texture, color and performance.
Attendees can experience the new CLARIA Delight tapioca-based starches in a hand-crafted sweet street taco. The label-friendly taco showcases the clean-label texturant portfolio from Tate & Lyle to deliver softness in the tortilla, creamy decadence in the mousse and a pleasing thickness in the sauce.
The number of products launched with “clean-label” claims continues to grow across the globe. According to Innova Market Insights (2015), 28% of new products launched in 2015 had one or more “clean-label” claims compared to 26% in 2014 and 24% in 2013. Because of this, Tate & Lyle continues to innovate in the clean-label starch category to provide manufacturers with additional tools to create on-trend food and beverage products for their consumers.
