Reduce recipe costs without compromising product appeal

When reducing recipe costs, you can't afford to compromise the product qualities that made your foods and beverages popular in the first place. How can you keep delivering the same great experiences, while optimizing your recipe savings?

At Ingredion Idea Labs® innovation centers, we'll show you how to reduce costs while still delivering the taste, texture and appearance that makes your products successful. In fact, our ingredient solutions offer much more than recipe savings — they can add functionality as well.

Save smarter to reduce recipe costs

Your recipes are the essence of your brand. We work closely with you to preserve their integrity while uncovering recipe savings.

Here are just a few of the ways we’re helping customers reduce recipe costs today:

  • Cut recipe costs of imitation cheese by replacing up to 35% of costly casein with PRECISA® 604 starch series, while preserving product sensory and functional qualities
  • Build back texture when replacing dairy fats and solids in creamy, smooth yogurts and other dairy and dairy-based products with formula optimization texture systems including N-Dulge Co-texturizers and PRECISA® Cream texture system
  • Reduce egg products in savory applications with N-CREAMER® 2000 modified food starch for dressings and sauces and  extend your recipe savings
  • Improve yield in meat applications while maintaining the juiciness with PENBIND® 1015 modified potato starch

Achieving the balance of recipe perfection and healthy margins is made possible through our deep formula optimization knowhow, broad functional ingredients portfolio, and extensive recipe savings expertise.
