Tap into the latest foods trends at Djazagro with Ingredion

February 21, 2019

Global ingredients solutions provider, Ingredion, will be taking visitors on a quest of delicious discovery at this year’s DJAZAGRO exhibition. A range of on-trend recipes will be available on stand A018 (Hall A) formulated with Ingredion’s unique range of ingredients including highly functional texturisers and starches, hydrocolloids and natural foaming agents.

Taking place from 25-28 February 2019 at SAFEX Palais des Expositions, Algiers, Algeria, DJAZAGRO will bring together over 20,000 professionals across the agri-food industry including equipment manufacturers, retailers, food service and ingredient suppliers. Ingredion’s team of experts will be on hand to discuss delegate’s food and beverage formulation and production challenges, while demonstrating a range of dairy, bakery, savoury snacks and beverage prototypes that tap into the latest consumer trends and flavours in the region.

Ingredion’s on-stand concepts will tackle challenges including specific health and nutrition requirements, affordability and attaining the perfect consumer-winning texture. Showcasing its portfolio of functional ingredient solutions, the menu includes a vegan analogue block cheese, perfectly crunchy and crispy coated nuts, a delicious and creamy bake stable chocolate filling and two beverages – a smooth and creamy, reduced sugar orange milk juice and a naturally long lasting, foam stable soda.

The food and beverage sector is the second largest industry in the region, and is facing more challenging and diverse demands than ever before. We are seeing more of the population across Northern Africa now working and on the lookout for convenient products that fit into the demands of a busy lifestyle away from the home.

“This is coupled with rising consumer interest in health and wellness as concerns for diabetes and obesity rates come to the fore. As consumption patterns change, this presents opportunities for food and beverage manufacturers to tap into this growing market with new or reformulated product developments that deliver a memorable eating experience, particularly in the bakery, dairy, snacks and beverage segments.

“Underlying these trends, affordability and cost optimisation remain essential. Combining our global formulation expertise with a diverse range of highly functional gums, starches and texturising ingredients, we can help local food producers adapt to ever-changing consumer tastes and trends. Our ingredient solutions can help manufacturers create healthier, consumer winning products while optimising costs but without sacrificing eating quality and visual appeal.”
