Clinical nutrition

Helping you to deliver functional, nutritious solutions

Our NATIONAL™ 77-1760 starch thickener combines the positive attributes of starches and gums in an instant, easy-to-use ingredient that thickens any liquid — hot or cold — to one of three different viscosity/texture levels. The thickeners can preserve the flavor and aroma of foods and beverages that patients yearn to enjoy — and can help thickened drinks and foods stay stable over time.

When it comes to medical sip and tube feeds, the right nutritional carbohydrate source is key. Our CRYSTAL TEX® LTF dextrin is an excellent source of complex carbohydrates. The ingredient can be used at high levels (20%) — keeping the viscosity low and enabling easy tube flow — to provide the required nutritional balance.

As the needs of today’s health-compromised individuals continue to grow — including the elderly, infants and young children — we’re pushing the boundaries of ingredient science to find new answers in medical nutrition. Rely on our thickener formulation expertise to help you deliver safe, cost-effective foods and beverages to your customers. Our teams of technical and market experts at Ingredion Idea Labs™ innovation centres are ready to help you take your products to the next level.
