Save money in beverages

Consumers are demanding more from their beverages. They now expect more than just rehydration and are seeking out those with added claims such as natural, protein-enriched or sugar-reduced. Although demand for these claims has risen, consumers still expect all the same taste, flavour and enjoyment. But, delivering all this cost-effectively can be a challenge.

Ingredion’s smart approach and high performing ingredients can help you achieve necessary cost savings and efficiency gains, without compromising on product quality.

Make your products more affordable and reduce recipe costs in:

  • Fruit drinks and smoothies: Reduce costs by replacing pulp
  • Dairy drinks: Reduce costs by reducing dairy protein and fat
  • Frozen carbonated beverages: Increase yield through increased air entrapment and product volume extension
  • Juice drinks: Reduce costs by replacing pectin
