All the ingredients of innovation

In the hands of our experts, materials harvested from nature are transformed to solve product formulation challenges across a wide range of industries. Our solutions toolbox contains both the familiar and exotic core materials of corn, potato, specialty vegetables, tapioca, rice, sago, wheat, sugar, stevia, quillaja, yucca, fruits, hydrocolloids and lactose. We apply three key processes to create new ingredients that make your products perform exactly as you wish.

  • Physical modification
  • Chemical modification
  • Enzyme modification

Partnering with nature

Consider pure and simple ingredients from nature. How can a leaf deliver sweetness? What intrinsic power of plant starch makes it thicken liquids and lighten solids? We help you do more with these ingredients than ever—to satisfy consumers who seek a connection to nature in the things they eat, drink, lather in their hair, smooth on their skin or use in their homes.

We’ve been propelling clean label innovation for more than 20 years with our NOVATION® functional native starches—bringing you great textures and the processing benefits of traditional modified starches. Their goodness is even verified by The Non-GMO Project, a non-profit group that uses international standards to verify non-GMO status in the United States.

Today you have more ways to make simple into simply delicious. Our new line of pulse proteins and flours enables you to create protein- and fiber-rich products that are vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. Fruit and vegetable purees and essences from the newest Ingredion company, Kerr Concentrates, Inc., brings sweet, juicy, ripe fruit and veggies into commercial recipes for new flavors, colors, textures and sweetness.

Another example of clean and simple ingredients at work is quillaja extract, from which we developed our high-efficiency Q-NATURALE® emulsifier. Quillaja emulsifiers function differently from standard emulsifiers used in the beverage industry, allowing higher flavor oil loads, elimination of weighting agents and manufacturing efficiencies. We call it “nature’s perfect emulsifier.”

With more than 100 years of experience and a relentless passion for discovery, we invite you to join us in using our expanding portfolio of clean and simple ingredients to improve quality of life—one great product at a time.
