All the ingredients of innovation
In the hands of our experts, materials harvested from nature are optimised to solve product formulation challenges across a wide range of industries. Our solutions toolbox contains both the familiar and exotic, including core materials of corn, potato, tapioca, rice, sago, wheat, sugar, stevia and quillaja. 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 leading the way on clean label innovation for more than 20 years with our NOVATIONTM functional native starches—bringing you ideal textures blended with the processing benefits of traditional modified starches.
Another example of clean and simple ingredients at work is quillaja extract, from which we developed our high-efficiency Q-NATURALETM emulsifier. Quillaja emulsifiers work differently from other emulsifiers used in the beverage industry, allowing higher flavour oil loads, while eliminating weighting agents and streamlining manufacturing processes. We call it “nature’s perfect emulsifier.”
With more than 100 years’ 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 our quality of life—one great product at a time.
