As part of its ongoing program to expand non-GMO ingredients offered across their texturants, fiber enrichment, and sugar and calorie reduction portfolios, Tate & Lyle recently introduced 17 new non-GMO starches with the same functionality as their traditional counterparts.
“In the past three years, non-GMO product sales in the US have grown by 270%. (1)Because Tate & Lyle is committed to providing manufacturers with solutions that respond to consumer demand, we are delighted to provide our customers with a range of non-GMO options, in addition to our existing starches, that help them deliver extraordinary food with great taste and texture,” commented Werner Barbosa, Global Platform Leader, Texturants at Tate & Lyle.
Whether it’s creating sugar-free cakes that don’t crumble or low-fat yogurts with indulgent texture, manufacturers need starches to deliver the food experiences consumers demand. Using starches to deliver the right balance of taste and texture is often one of the most complex formulating challenges in yogurts, soups, sauces, and dressings. The combination of Tate & Lyle’s deep formulation expertise and ingredient portfolio is tailor-made to provide food manufacturers with the right solutions.
Here’s examples of the new non-GMO starches that are being introduced:
- REZISTA® NG – A cook-up starch that provides superior process stability and smooth texture, making it ideal for puddings, dairy products, condiments, sauces, and dressings.
- X-PAND’R® NG – An instant starch that gives baking and snack manufacturers dough machinability and crispy, crunchy textures in their crackers, chips, and snacks.
- MAXI-GEL® NG – A cook-up starch that helps with moisture management by creating smooth textures in yogurts, soups, sauces, and dressings, along with superior freeze-thaw stability in frozen meals.
As Tate & Lyle introduces more non-GMO offerings, maintaining the highest standards of certification from farm to factory will remain a key priority. Tate & Lyle will continue to use a combination of two of the most reputable third-party certification bodies, SGS International and Eurofins, to ensure those standards are met.
