Tate & Lyle Expands Portfolio of Texturants With 17 Non-GMO Starches

| Filed in:

Line extensions provide food manufacturers with non-GMO solutions to create extraordinary products and meet increasing consumer demand.

(LONDON) 18 May 2017 – Tate & Lyle PLC (“Tate & Lyle”), a leading global provider of food ingredients and solutions, is pleased to introduce 17 new non-GMO starches with the same functionality as their traditional counterparts. This is part of an ongoing programme of non-GMO ingredient expansions across Tate & Lyle’s texturants, fibre enrichment, and sugar and calorie reduction portfolios.

Commenting on the expansion, Werner Barbosa, Global Platform Leader, Texturants at Tate & Lyle said: “In the past three years, non-GMO product sales in the US have grown by 270%.[1]  At Tate & Lyle, we are committed to providing manufacturers with solutions which respond to consumer demands. Therefore, we are delighted to be able to provide our customers with a range of non-GMO options, alongside our existing starches, to help them deliver extraordinary food with great taste and texture.”

Whether it’s creating sugar-free cakes that don’t crumble or low-fat yoghurts 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 yoghurts, 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.

Examples of the non-GMO starches being introduced are:

  • REZISTA® NG cook-up starch, which provides superior process stability and smooth texture, making it ideal for puddings, dairy products, condiments, sauces and dressings.  
  • X-PAND’R® NG instant starch gives baking and snack manufacturers dough machinability and crispy, crunchy textures in their crackers, chips and snacks.  
  • MAXI-GEL® NG cook-up starch can help with moisture management by creating smooth textures in yoghurts, soups, sauces and dressings, and superior freeze-thaw stability in frozen meals.

As Tate & Lyle continues to introduce more non-GMO offerings, maintaining the highest standards of certification from farm to factory is a key priority. For this purpose, Tate & Lyle uses a combination of two of the most reputable third-party certification bodies: SGS International and Eurofins.
