Our host Melissa Kaczmarczyk, Principal Scientist for North America, Global Nutrition, speaks to Kristie Du of PepsiCo, about how our respective nutrition teams work together to meet customer expectations. 

In this new Nutrition Centre podcast segment, Melissa introduces us to Tate & Lyle's only in-house chef! Meet Christine and discover her role in innovating and shaping how we help our customers meet consumer trends. 

Melissa and Christine are back with Nutritious & Delicious, Ep2! This time Christine has picked a sweet treat from Brazil to focus on, sharing with us how she'd go about reformulating a traditional Brazilian favourite, carrot cake with a brigadeiro filling, utilising our Tate & Lyle ingredients to reduce sugar and calories, optimize texture, and support positive nutrition with added fibre claims!

Melissa is joined by her fellow-Nutrition team colleague Ieva Laurie, and Cronan McNamara from Creme Global, discussing our peer reviewed health and nutrition data modelling study into the effects of reformulating everyday foods with added fibre.

How can we connect with younger generations on nutrition and healthier eating? Nutrition Scientist Thomas Teh speaks to one of our graduate trainees based in Singapore about the challenges and opportunities.

Meet Jesse. He is a third-year biomedical student at Maastricht University in the Netherlands. Last summer he spent some time with Tate & Lyle as an intern with our Nutrition team. Combining his studies with his keen interest in sports, here he talks to Melissa about his time and Tate & Lyle, and his focus: the role nutrition plays in sport, and the link between gut health and exercise.
