Drive appeal with organic claims
“Organic” is more than a buzzword; it’s a signal to consumers that products have been made responsibly, sustainably and safely
As "natural" claims proliferate, today's consumers have become more skeptical — and look to organic certifications such as USDA Organic as the gold standard of trust, traceability and transparency in their foods. But delivering the eating experiences and organic label claims consumers seek has challenges, from recipe development and processing hurdles to extracting the consumer insights that matter most.
Here’s how Ingredion can help you get the most value and ROI with your organic investment:
- Formulation and application expertise to overcome the challenges
- Consumer insights to create the most appeal
- Broad portfolio of certified organic ingredients, including U.S.-produced organic native and functional native corn starches
