Starch Innovation to meet your needs

Consumers have competing product wants and needs. The most versatile and cost effective ingredient, starch is traditionally used to deliver texture, and viscosity, however at Ingredion, we can bring even more functionality to a broad range of applications.

Functional Native Starches

What if you could get all the functionality you seek from your food products while offering the natural, organic and recognisable ingredient options consumers want? When you work with Ingredion, you can. Choose from our range of functional native starches that offer textural qualities and processing stability with the significant benefit of clean labels—even in challenging applications like dairy desserts, salad dressings and many more.

Our NOVATION®  functional starches appears on labels as “maize starch,” a familiar, trusted ingredient. These signature ingredients deliver the processing and stability benefits of traditional modified starches with the advantage of a simple, consumer-friendly label.

Modified Starches

Modified starches opened up a whole way of life that continues  today, with busy families seeking convenience and great-tasting meals and snacks, on the table or on the go.  You can rely on our broad portfolio of starches to make Monday night’s special for families, with frozen lasagne for a crowd, or that crunchy, fresh-tasting Chinese  meal for one. Add velvety mouthfeel, glossy sheen, freeze-thaw stability and much more. Our modified starches deliver exceptional functionality across all of your applications.
