Fast-track your product development with customised co-creation from Ingredion's experts in Asia Pacific
Create what consumers crave with Ingredion’s portfolio of successful formulations
Consumer tastes are evolving fast—standing out in this competitive market requires a special dedication to innovation, and a wealth of industry knowledge. As companies continually innovate products to deliver the eating experiences that shoppers seek, tapping into the portfolio of an industry leader is key to a successful product.
Working with a dedicated outside R&D resource can be the right solution to bring you a winning formula. But how can you be sure your development partner has the technical expertise and rich partner ecosystem needed for a faster and more successful launch?
With Ingredion’s wide portfolio of solutions and long history of formulation expertise, we empower you with the ability to differentiate your products and offer much-needed flexibility to refresh existing product lines to meet consumer demand with speed to market.

|The Ingredion Advantage|
Cheese co-creation at Ingredion Singapore lab
Ingredion collaborated with a renowned dairy cooperative at the state-of-the-art Idea Labs facility in Singapore to evaluate a new dairy ingredient for processed cheese.
Vegan block cheese collaboration
The Ingredion Asia Pacific team collaborated with a sustainable protein company to create a vegan block cheese that melts and grates just like dairy cheese.
The team used a systematic approach that encompasses starches, gums and pulse protein to create a plant-based block cheese that mimics the mouthfeel and texture of real dairy cheese, making it a satisfying eating experience for those keen on a plant-based lifestyle.
