Meet consumer demand for a wide array of wellness and lifestyle choices

What consumers seek in food and beverage can be as nuanced as their individual personalities. Manufacturers creating in these spaces may have difficulty navigating shifting trends and targeting the proper claims to attract new generations of demanding consumers, let alone finding the ingredients needed to enable sales and control costs.

For those needing extra assistance solving a wellness-related formulation challenge, Ingredion’s experts can suggest specific ingredients from our portfolio that can meet or enable a variety of wellness choices, including:

  • Clean label and no artificial flavours or ingredients
  • Sustainable, ethical and traceable
  • Plant-based, non-GMO, organic, vegan or vegetarian
  • Halal, gluten-free, allergen-free or keto-friendly

These claims and attributes are important for consumers because ingredient choice can play a significant role in enabling healthier habits, which in turn reduce stresses on the body and help individuals feel their best.
