Almost everyone you meet has something to say about eating and living healthier — so they can age gracefully and live longer. But at what point does healthy eating truly help manage health issues?
Ingredion is your dedicated guide for nutritional ingredients and health claims. Our petition with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration — to allow a Type 2 diabetes risk reduction claim for our heavily researched HI-MAIZE® resistant starch — was approved and resulted in a qualified health claim that allows food manufacturers to link high-amylose maize resistant starch to a reduced risk of Type 2 diabetes on the packages of conventional foods. *
[[IF APPLICABLE TO YOUR REGION]]When you collaborate with Ingredion, you gain a partner at the forefront of health management. Another proven nutritional ingredient, SUSTAGRAIN® wholegrain barley, is currently the highest quality natural wholegrain fiber on the market. Made from waxy hull-less barley, SUSTAGRAIN® delivers 30% total fiber (three times more than oats) of which almost half comes from soluble beta-glucans (12%). Incorporating SUSTAGRAIN® into your product can help you apply the EFSA substantiated health claim: “barley beta-glucan has been shown to lower/reduce blood cholesterol. High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease.”
