When we consume a favourite product there are key sensory characteristics that we expect and enjoy – the taste, the texture, the mouthfeel, the appearance – and it’s by having these work in harmony, that brands deliver eating and drinking experiences that not only satisfy, they delight.</h3> <p><strong>As an industry, a lot of the focus has been on understanding ‘taste’, when actually taste and texture are intrinsically linked in successful products.</strong></p> <p><em><strong>James T. Smoot, Ph. D., Tate &amp; Lyle’s Director of Texturants R&amp;D, explains the core role that texture plays in the creation of the new and innovative products that today’s consumers are looking for.</strong></em></p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--item"><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/category/trends-and-insights" hreflang="en">Trends and insights</a></div> <div class="field field--name-field-story-description field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field--item"> <div class="paragraph paragraph--type--wysiwyg-and-block-reference paragraph--view-mode--default"> <div class="field field--name-field-in-wysiwyg2 field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><div alt="A stack of cookies containing starches" data-embed-button="tal_embed" data-entity-embed-display="media_image" data-entity-type="media" data-entity-uuid="0e0976f5-9add-402d-8355-535e2ac61244" data-langcode="en" title="Starches in bakery and snack products" class="align-right embedded-entity"> <img src="/sites/default/files/Starches-in-bakery-and-snacks.jpg" alt="A stack of cookies containing starches" title="Starches in bakery and snack products" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /></div> <h4>Rethinking recipes</h4> <p>Food and beverage producers adapt existing products or develop new ones for a host of reasons including to offer an enhanced eating experience, to improve a product’s nutrition credentials or make a nutrition claim, to make an ingredient label more consumer-friendly, or to manage cost without compromising stability, quality or shelf-life. Every ingredient in a recipe has its own attributes. When you change one parameter during a reformulation, this will affect how all other ingredients interact in the ‘food matrix’, the complex interplay of nutrients in a food or beverage. It’s very rare that one ingredient is an exact match for another one. A texturant can enables a seamless reformulation by replacing other ingredients, so that the consumer can enjoy the same eating or drinking experience despite the changes.</p> <h4>Mastering texture</h4> <p>Texture has always been a key consideration in product development or reformulation. Today, starch is the most common ingredient used in texture formulation design because with it, formulators are able to predict textural changes and adjust their formulation as needed. Texture is becoming even more important in product formulation because it is one of the main levers to create novelty and the impression of indulgence in the consumer experience. Think of the recent launches offering contrasting textures, rougher or rustic textures, ‘mix ins’, healthy ‘add-ins’ such as added seeds.</p> <p>More significantly, emerging consumer trends, such as the growing popularity of plant-based diets, mean that producers have to replace ingredients with alternatives that deliver the same functionality. Formulators often get stuck on the texture part, which is where our application scientists step in, and where tools like our <a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/texture-university"><strong>Texture University™</strong></a> provide support and solutions. That thousands of formulators have joined our educational webinar series since it launched in late 2018, shows just how how much there is to learn to achieve the perfect texture.</p> <h4>A growing toolkit</h4> <p>Different texturants provide different functionalities, for example: thickeners, where starch particles in a liquid food such as a gravy will swell in water when cooked to increase the viscosity; and gelling agents, which may be used to create a strawberry jam, for instance, which has a low viscosity during preparation but becomes a gel once cooled. When we think about fat, for instance, we think about the great textural experience that it delivers. If a formulator takes fat out of a recipe, changing the melting behaviour of a product or its overall firmness or thickness, it can be challenging to know which texturising system can build these attributes back in.</p> <p>At Tate &amp; Lyle, our extensive portfolio of <a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/our-expertise/texturants"><strong>250+ speciality starches</strong></a> can be used in many applications ranging from basic thickening agents to distinctive functionalities designed for specific product categories, including beverages, bakery, dairy, soups, sauces and dressings.</p> <h4>Satisfying consumer demand</h4> <div alt="Woman eating clean label ice-cream" data-embed-button="tal_embed" data-entity-embed-display="media_image" data-entity-type="media" data-entity-uuid="9bf93651-f318-459e-ae2e-8d11494f73a1" data-langcode="en" title="Woman eating ice cream" class="align-left embedded-entity"> <img src="/sites/default/files/woman-eating-clean-lable-ice-cream.jpg" alt="Woman eating clean label ice-cream" title="Woman eating ice cream" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /></div> <p>Clean label is a major focus of our texturants research and product development because consumers are seeking simpler, healthier food and beverage products they can trust. They want to know what is in their food and drink so they can make an informed purchase decision. For instance, in Europe, we know that the vast majority - 77% - of shoppers read ingredient lists1. They are looking for familiar ingredients and want to understand where they originate from. Ultimately, they want transparency.</p> <p><span class="tool-tip-link" data-placement="right" data-toggle="tooltip" style="border-bottom: 1px dotted #000" title="Sweet biscuits and cookies, cakes, pastries and sweet goods, and prepared meals are the categories launching most ‘clean label’ products using starches in Europe 2">Our clean-label starches meet this demand</span>; for instance, in Europe our CLARIA® Clean-Label Starches label as ‘starch’, ‘maize starch’ or ‘tapioca starch’, depending on the raw material, helping shoppers feel assured that they’re consuming something familiar, that they understand. In the UK, the term ‘cornflour’, a well-known kitchen staple, can be used by producers on-pack.</p> <p>Alongside transparency, consumers are focused on health, sustainability and taste – opting for tasty products that are better for them and better for the planet. As a result, <span class="tool-tip-link" data-placement="right" data-toggle="tooltip" style="border-bottom:1px dotted #000000;" title="46% of consumers globally say that they have changed their diets in the last two years in order to lead a more sustainable lifestyle 3">consumers are limiting the amount of meat they consume and are drawn to products</span> that are plant-based yet nutrient dense. Our texturants are all plant-based and we are doing a lot of work with customers to develop foods and drinks without animal-based ingredients.</p> <p>The challenge in creating a dairy-alternative, for instance, is how to build back in the texture that an animal protein would provide. The casein in traditional dairy products delivers a creamy texture in the mouth and a fast “meltaway”, which can be difficult to replicate. With starches, we can build that texture back in to deliver an indulgent experience that consumers love, helping us to care for our planet by offering foods and drinks with less climate impact, while in some cases lowering calories through the removal of fat. In parts of the world with limited access to refrigeration and where dairy is growing in popularity, such as in China, starches are helping to create shelf-stable, long-life dairy products, making nutritious products more accessible and supporting healthy living.</p> <p><strong>In summary, the range of food and drink available to meet different consumer needs and preferences has never been wider and continues to grow. The formulator’s texture toolkit is what makes many of these products possible, which is why we should celebrate starches!</strong></p> <p><strong>Sources</strong></p> <p><sub>1 - Tate &amp; Lyle Proprietary Research, 2020, UK, France, Germany, percentages are “always” or “sometimes</sub><br /><sub>2 - Mintel GNPD product launches (2016 – 2020) with at least one of the following claims: All natural, Ethical – Environmentally Friendly Product, Ethical – Sustainable (Habitat/Resource), Free from added/artificial additives/flavourings/preservatives, GMO free, Organic</sub><br /><sub>3 - FMCG Gurus, January 2021</sub></p> <h4><strong>Related links:</strong></h4> <p><strong><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/our-expertise/texturants">Our expertise in Texturants</a> </strong></p> <p><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/texture-university"><strong>Texture University</strong></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/clean-label"><strong>Clean label trends</strong></a> </p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Tags</div> <div class="field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/category/innovation" hreflang="en">Innovation</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/category/starch" hreflang="en">Starch</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/category/texturants" hreflang="en">Texturants</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-image-size field--type-list-integer field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Image size</div> <div class="field--item">Medium</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-news-image-spacing field--type-list-string field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">News image spacing</div> <div class="field--item">All sides 10</div> </div> Wed, 30 Jun 2021 11:44:15 +0000 mattwagg 16411 at https://www.tateandlyle.com Purpose at the heart of innovation https://www.tateandlyle.com/news/purpose-heart-innovation <span>Purpose at the heart of innovation</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/82496" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">mattwagg</span></span> <span>Wed, 06/16/2021 - 08:50</span> <div class="field field--name-field-date field--type-datetime field--label-hidden field--item"><time datetime="2021-06-16T12:00:00Z">16 Jun 2021</time> </div> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><h3>Victoria Spadaro Grant our President of Innovation and Commercial Development (ICD), joined us in November 2020.

In particular, it’s about supporting healthy living, and whether it’s through the launch of our Sweetener and Fibre Universities during the year, or our online webinars, we are constantly looking for new ways we can support our customers.</p> <p>This close relationship with our customers is also helping to deliver results with a 21% growth (in constant currency) in revenue from New Products this year. As well as looking after the present, ICD’s role is to design what the future looks like. And in line with our purpose we need to do that in a sustainable way.</p> <p>The ingredients we design, the processes we design – everywhere we have an impact we need to consider sustainability. That’s why I’m particularly pleased about our new acquisitions this year. With stevia and tapioca, we’re not only diversifying the raw materials we use, but also providing more plant-based options for our customers and, in turn, helping consumers have healthier, more balanced diets.</p> <h3>Our Market</h3> <h4>HOW HAS COVID-19 AFFECTED THE MARKET THIS YEAR?</h4> <p>I’d point to three key things. One is a polarisation between premium and value. With more people eating at home during lockdown, we saw an increase in some premium sectors. At the same time, with others worried about their jobs or struggling financially, there was also an increase in demand for affordable food – such as smaller pack sizes of favourite products. The second is a resurgence of established, traditional brands. In times of crisis, many people revert to brands they trust.</p> <p>With pressure on supply chains and retailers having trouble keeping their shelves full – whether online or in stores – many food companies rationalised by reducing the number of products they offer. As a result, there was less desire to innovate and customer launches slowed down.</p> <p>Customer innovation will increase as we move beyond the pandemic, but it won’t happen overnight. The third trend is again two opposites – indulgence and wellbeing. As we come out of the pandemic, we’ll see people wanting to celebrate and indulge while, at the same time, Covid-19 has made people realise the importance of a healthy diet to wellbeing. And that’s set to continue.</p> <div alt="Nutrition Centre logo over a father and child in supermarket" data-embed-button="tal_embed" data-entity-embed-display="media_image" data-entity-type="media" data-entity-uuid="70ba19f2-916a-499e-8d85-102ed19ea46f" data-langcode="en" title="Nutrition Centre logo tile " class="align-right embedded-entity"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2022-09/Nutrition-Centre-logo-tile.jpg" alt="Nutrition Centre logo over a father and child in supermarket" title="Nutrition Centre logo tile " typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /></div> <h4>WITH FEWER CUSTOMER LAUNCHES AS A RESULT OF COVID-19, HOW HAS THE ICD PIPELINE SUCCEEDED IN GROWING?</h4> <p>Our innovation pipeline is fuller than ever and grew in value by 18% during the year. That’s because we collaborate very closely with our customers throughout the innovation process, and our solutions and technical expertise give them what they need – low-calorie, reduced-sugar, clean label, non-GM and plant-based options. I’m particularly proud of the nutrition team’s launch this year of our <strong><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/nutrition-centre">new digital Nutrition Centre</a></strong>.</p> <p>It offers expert insights, research and educational tools for customers, scientists, health professionals – in fact anyone who’s interested. It’s an open platform which is rare in our industry, and so, I believe, it shows Tate &amp; Lyle as a thought leader in the field, while helping us develop even closer relationships with customers.</p> <h4>OUR FUTURE WHERE DO YOU SEE OUR BIGGEST OPPORTUNITIES?</h4> <p>Customers must be our focus, and food and beverages our obsession. The team has worked really hard to find creative ways to help customers during lockdown, and we’ve got closer to them as a result. As we come out of the pandemic, we need to capitalise on those relationships and make sure we’re even more customer-focused than before. And we need to step up how we think about food, to become even more focused on the end product.</p> <p>Food is about taste, wellbeing, conviviality – if we can demonstrate more of that, we’ll have an even greater meeting of minds with our customers.</p> <h4>HOW HAVE YOU FOUND JOINING TATE &amp; LYLE DURING LOCKDOWN?</h4> <p>I’m amazed at how well it’s gone despite only having met in person a few of the people I work with! And that’s because of the calibre of people at Tate &amp; Lyle, and how they’ve integrated me into the team.</p> <p>The breadth of talent across the whole company is outstanding. There is a real mix of experience and backgrounds which brings a lot of diverse thinking and makes the business vibrant and interesting. The other thing that I’ve found inspiring is the absolute focus on safety, more so than I’ve experienced before. And not just safety at work, but also driving safely and safety at home. That really speaks to the care people have for each other.</p> <hr /><div alt="Laughing woman eating cerea and bowl close-up" data-embed-button="tal_embed" data-entity-embed-display="media_image" data-entity-type="media" data-entity-uuid="df036203-0890-46c0-8d2f-49aece00cd93" data-langcode="en" title="Annual Report footer" class="align-right embedded-entity"> <img src="/sites/default/files/AR-footer-image.jpg" alt="Laughing woman eating cerea and bowl close-up" title="Annual Report footer" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /></div> <h4>Find out what else we’ve been up to over the past year in <a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/annual-report">our Annual Report 2021 hub</a></h4> <p><strong>Download a copy of the Annual Report 2021 below</strong></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-downloads-border-title field--type-string field--label-hidden field--item">Download the Annual Report 2021</div> <div class="field field--name-field-downloads field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><div class="paragraph paragraph--type--related-downloads paragraph--view-mode--default" id="paragraph-30531"> <div class="inline-content inline-icon"> <div class="field field--name-field-file-icon field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--item"><article role="article" about="/content/icon-black-documents" class="icon full clearfix"> <h2 class="hide"> <a href="/content/icon-black-documents" rel="bookmark"><span>Icon-Black-Documents</span> </a> </h2> <div class="content"> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/icon_48px_width/public/Icon-Black-Documents-2x.png?itok=TYyr_W5G" width="39" height="48" alt="" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </div> </div> </article> </div> </div> <div class="inline-content inline-description"> <div class="field field--name-field-file-display-name field--type-string field--label-hidden field--item">Annual Report 2021</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-file-group field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"> <div class="tal__download--button" class="tal-file-download-link tal__download--button"> <div class="tal--download-external-link"> <div class="field field--name-field-tal-link field--type-link field--label-hidden field--item"><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/sites/default/files/2021-06/annual-report-2021.pdf" target="_blank">Download</a></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Tags</div> <div class="field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/category/innovation" hreflang="en">Innovation</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/category/nutrition-centre" hreflang="en">Nutrition Centre</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/category/victoria-spadaro-grant" hreflang="en">Victoria Spadaro Grant</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-image-size field--type-list-integer field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Image size</div> <div class="field--item">Medium</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-news-image-spacing field--type-list-string field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">News image spacing</div> <div class="field--item">All sides 15</div> </div> Wed, 16 Jun 2021 08:50:53 +0000 mattwagg 16371 at https://www.tateandlyle.com Chair’s Statement: Strong results from exceptional effort https://www.tateandlyle.com/news/chairs-statement-strong-results-exceptional-effort <span>Chair’s Statement: Strong results from exceptional effort</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/82496" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">mattwagg</span></span> <span>Tue, 06/15/2021 - 09:42</span> <div class="field field--name-field-date field--type-datetime field--label-hidden field--item"><time datetime="2021-06-15T12:00:00Z">15 Jun 2021</time> </div> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><h3>Our Chair, Gerry Murphy, reports on an exceptional year and how, through the tremendous efforts of our people across the world, Tate &amp;

Keeping people informed, connected, and focused on what’s most important, has been both difficult and essential.</p> <p>In my view, Nick’s frequent virtual town halls, smaller café meetings, personal emails and videos set the standard for caring and thoughtful communication during an unprecedented crisis. And I must thank my Board colleagues for their contribution too. We have been more engaged with management than ever this year, and we got much closer to the wider team through our own virtual interactions. We hosted regional virtual cafés open to all employees and some special sessions on key topics.</p> <h2>Our purpose - a powerful motivator</h2> <p>Nick and his team said from the start of the pandemic that we must be guided by our purpose, with our first imperative being to keep our people and communities safe and well. What came through loud and clear from our virtual conversations was just how anchoring this purpose message has been for our people.</p> <p>When everything outside is confusing and uncertain, our purpose confirms a set of beliefs and an enduring direction in all circumstances. It reminds our people, whether working in plants with unsettling and difficult constraints, or working at home on their screens, that what they are doing is really important, and not just for today.</p> <h2>Tackling climate change</h2> <p>Covid-19 has shown that humanity is just a subset of a bigger, complex natural ecosystem which is inherently fragile. It has also accelerated the world’s focus on environmental, social and governance issues because it has sensitised us to our own vulnerability and the consequences of what we do. Tackling the climate change crisis and protecting our natural resources for future generations is probably the most significant long-term challenge facing the world today.</p> <p>As a business with an integral role in the food supply chain, we recognise our responsibility to play our part and during the year we set new and ambitious targets for 2030 in areas such as waste, water, agriculture and greenhouse gas emissions. Importantly, our Scope 1 and 2 and Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets were validated by the Science Based Targets initiative and align with the goals enshrined in the Paris Agreement.</p> <h2>Investing to deliver our strategy</h2> <p>We have expanded our product portfolio and geographic footprint through two acquisitions, a stevia (natural sweetener) business in China and a tapioca-based texturant business in Thailand. These are important strategic developments in a number of ways. They diversify our raw material supply, expand our presence in the higher growth Asian markets, and broaden our sweetener and texturants solutions portfolio for customers globally.</p> <p>I must congratulate our management team for completing these acquisitions while working remotely, without compromising any aspect of our due diligence.</p> <p>The strategic progress we have made over the last few years has enabled the Board, as we announced in April 2021, to explore the potential to separate our two businesses, about which Nick expands in his review in the Annual Report. The Board is fully engaged in this important process and discussions are ongoing.</p> <h2>Thanking departing board members and welcoming new colleagues</h2> <p>Two outstanding non-executive directors, Anne Minto and Dr Ajai Puri, are retiring from the Board this year as they have now served for nine years. Anne has upheld the highest standards of governance through her stewardship of the Remuneration Committee, while Ajai’s continuing education of the Board on scientific and regulatory developments has been exemplary. We will miss them both for their specific expertise and their contributions to the wider Board agenda.</p> <p>As we bid farewell to Anne and Ajai, I am delighted to welcome John Cheung and Patrícia Corsi to the Board. John is our first non-executive director to be based in Asia since I became Chair, and his wealth of expertise in the food and beverage industry in the region will be invaluable as we grow our Asian business. Similarly, Patrícia is our first Latin American non-executive director and brings extensive experience in this important growth market as well as expertise in global marketing, digital and brand development.</p> <p>I am also delighted to welcome Vivid Sehgal to the Board. Vivid joined us as Chief Financial Officer Designate in March before becoming Chief Financial Officer in April. His extensive financial, commercial and transactional experience will be of great benefit to the Board and Tate &amp; Lyle.</p> <h2>Staying focused on our shareholders, maintaining our progressive dividend policy</h2> <p>Notwithstanding our emphasis on protecting the interests of our broader stakeholders during this extraordinary year, the Board has retained its focus on our shareholders. We recognise the importance of dividends to our shareholders and, despite considerable uncertainty during the year, we maintained our interim dividend. Given the robust performance over the full year the Board is recommending an increase in the final dividend of 5.8% to 22.0 pence per share, bringing the total dividend for the year ended 31 March 2021 to 30.8 pence, an increase of 4.1%. This increase brings dividends to a level consistent with the Board’s progressive dividend policy, notwithstanding the pandemic.</p> <h2>In conclusion</h2> <p>It has been a very demanding year for all of us, both personally and professionally, and we still face continuing uncertainties. But despite everything, our business has continued to flourish. The agility and resilience of our people, along with their commitment, quality and decency reassures me that, whatever the world throws at us, Tate &amp; Lyle will find a way to prosper.</p> <p><strong><em>Gerry Murphy</em><br /> Chair</strong></p> <hr /><div alt="Laughing woman eating cerea and bowl close-up" data-embed-button="tal_embed" data-entity-embed-display="media_image" data-entity-type="media" data-entity-uuid="df036203-0890-46c0-8d2f-49aece00cd93" data-langcode="en" title="Annual Report footer" class="align-right embedded-entity"> <img src="/sites/default/files/AR-footer-image.jpg" alt="Laughing woman eating cerea and bowl close-up" title="Annual Report footer" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /></div> <p>Read Gerry's full review <a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/sites/default/files/2021-06/annual-report-2021.pdf#page=14" target="_blank">from page 12 of the Annual Report 2021</a></p> <h4>Read more about what else we’ve been up to over the past year in <a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/annual-report">our Annual Report 2021</a></h4> <p>Download a copy of the Annual Report 2021 below</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-downloads-border-title field--type-string field--label-hidden field--item">Download the Annual Report 2021</div> <div class="field field--name-field-downloads field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><div class="paragraph paragraph--type--related-downloads paragraph--view-mode--default" id="paragraph-30516"> <div class="inline-content inline-icon"> <div class="field field--name-field-file-icon field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--item"><article role="article" about="/content/icon-black-documents" class="icon full clearfix"> <h2 class="hide"> <a href="/content/icon-black-documents" rel="bookmark"><span>Icon-Black-Documents</span> </a> </h2> <div class="content"> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/icon_48px_width/public/Icon-Black-Documents-2x.png?itok=TYyr_W5G" width="39" height="48" alt="" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </div> </div> </article> </div> </div> <div class="inline-content inline-description"> <div class="field field--name-field-file-display-name field--type-string field--label-hidden field--item">Annual Report 2021</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-file-group field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"> <div class="tal__download--button" class="tal-file-download-link tal__download--button"> <div class="tal--download-external-link"> <div class="field field--name-field-tal-link field--type-link field--label-hidden field--item"><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/sites/default/files/2021-06/annual-report-2021.pdf" target="_blank">Download</a></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Tags</div> <div class="field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/category/board" hreflang="en">Board</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/category/corporate-responsibility" hreflang="en">Corporate responsibility</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/category/dr-gerry-murphy" hreflang="en">Dr Gerry Murphy</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/category/industrial-0" hreflang="en">Industrial</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/category/innovation" hreflang="en">Innovation</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/category/investor-relations" hreflang="en">Investor Relations</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.tateandlyle.com/category/sustainability" hreflang="en">Sustainability</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-image-size field--type-list-integer field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Image size</div> <div class="field--item">Medium</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-news-image-spacing field--type-list-string field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">News image spacing</div> <div class="field--item">All sides 15</div> </div> Tue, 15 Jun 2021 09:42:44 +0000 mattwagg 16366 at https://www.tateandlyle.com Helping a start-up start up: using allulose to develop an indulgent low-fat ice cream https://www.tateandlyle.com/news/helping-start-start-using-allulose-develop-indulgent-low-fat-ice-cream <span>Helping a start-up start up: using allulose to develop an indulgent low-fat ice cream </span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/82496" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">mattwagg</span></span> <span>Thu, 06/10/2021 -

This included identifying the right combination of sweeteners to complement allulose and ensure a sugar-like sweetness across the entire taste experience, as well as emulsifiers to give the foam structure typically delivered by sugar.</p> <p>The result?
