Engage the senses like never before

The luxurious yogurt your consumer enjoys so much that it becomes the “natural choice”. The addictively crispy snack that has couples competing for the last bite. The creamy, chunky soup that leaves you wondering if it's homemade. The smooth and rich chocolate that makes your troubles melt away. Consumers want truly compelling sensory experiences—tastes, textures and fragrances so satisfying that they inspire emotional connections with the brands delivering them.

Texture is the dark horse of the food industry. Its presence is integral to whether consumers will love a food, or reject it. Enjoying the taste of a food involves the interactive aroma, flavour and textural experience in the mouth. Taste is king in consumer repeated purchase behaviour and texture is a key contributor role to the eating experience. Without the right texture, the entire experience falls flat.

At Ingredion, we’re working with you not just to optimise sensory but to transform it and set new standards of delight in the minds of your consumers. Exceptional sensory experiences are a global trend. We are here to help you become the trendsetters.

You can create the next Korean dessert sensation or an authentic green curry. Whatever your next food application is, your formulation can answer more than one trend in a single product. Our global sensory capabilities provide all the tools you need. For example, our experts can help you identify exact sensory preferences through precise testing and descriptive analysis. As part of our proprietary DIAL-IN™ technology, you can define your product’s sensory profile, with help from our trained in-house sensory expert panels who use our TEXICON™ texture language and SWEETABULARY™ sweetness language for consistent understanding. Panels quantify attributes to allow us to build texture and sweetness maps that define your product’s sensory profile and compare it to others.

Perfecting sensory also calls for reflecting restaurant-quality taste and texture trends in your formulations. To achieve that, we bring you world-class culinologists who are experts at translating signature dishes into prototypes for large-scale production.

With our expertise, you can meet the demand for unique, affordable sensory experiences. Our work in processed and analogue cheese has produced 24%-rennet-casein-reduced analogue mozzarella cheese for pizza and other cheese applications with all the functionality expected of cheese: firmness, shreddability and stretchability. Another example of great sensory experience made affordable is using our naturally-sourced FOAMATION™ foaming agent to stabilise the foam and fizz in beverages to excite the eyes and taste-buds alike.

Through our unsurpassed global sensory capabilities, broad portfolio of ingredients and Save Money program, you can create savoury crispy flatbreads that crackle with each bite, jelly candies with tender but chewy appeal or household cleaners that smell lemony and fresh.

Unlock the sensory experiences your products can deliver—and create products consumers will return to, time and time again. Innovate with us.
