Better Biomaterials

When it comes to innovative ingredients, Ingredion offers nature-based ingredients and functional additives for a wide range of industries. We leverage our polymer technology platforms to meet your specific needs. Modified starches, polyols, dextrins, liquids, as well as renewable and cost effective biopolymer solutions to meet long-term sustainability needs. These are all part of our solutions toolbox. Whether you are manufacturing semi-durable or durable plastics, formulated polymers and industrial emulsions, construction compounds, or fabric and home care products, we are here to help.

Nature-based biopolymers

Meet the growing demand for fibre glass products with high performance film-forming biopolymers that deliver significant benefits and competitive advantage time after time. Explore our nature-based VINLON® and VINTEX® series to find out how you can maximise integrity of every glass strand at an affordable cost.

Our nature-based biopolymers produce a wide range of thickening and rheological profiles compared with other bio-gums or hydrocolloids, helping you achieve the  film properties your product requires.

  • Replace polyethylene and polypropylene in bioplastics for injection, blown film and blown molding applications
  • Avoid synthetic additives in laundry detergents and fabric conditioners with our nature-based polymer encapsulants
  • Use as a lubricant for gloves and condoms, instead of silica
  • Substitute cement and other synthetic chemicals with natural biopolymers for steel dust briquetting application to bring your binding strength to the next level


Did you know?

Biomaterials also increase the level of bio-based content in your products, reducing the amount of  non-renewable waste sent to landfills.
