Improve taste while solving better-for-you product challenges
Amplify saltiness with less sodium. Add sweetness without the sugar. And use plant-based ingredients without any lingering off-notes. To help manufacturers fast-track product development and deliver delicious new products, Ingredion’s consultative flavor modification solution leverages our broad portfolio of flavors with modifying properties (FMPs) to solve better-for-you challenges while achieving taste profiles that are nearly identical to those offered by traditional ingredients.
Our flavor modification experts work across categories to create desirable eating experiences and give manufacturers the most innovative solutions available according to four key pillars.
Our dedication to taste excellence inspires us to offer this service at no additional cost to manufacturers that partner with us for their formulation needs. Iterative, collaborative and transparent, our taste improvement solution utilizes our core expertise to deliver products that have the better-for-you benefits consumers demand — and make taste a top priority.
Flavors with modifying properties (FMPs) are food ingredients that fall under a natural flavor declaration. FMPs can solve for off-flavors like lingering and metallic notes when reducing sugar, astringencies when using plant-based proteins or magnifying saltiness while reducing sodium.
Our FMPs offer stability during manufacturing and extended shelf life — all while being significantly less expensive than many alternatives. FMPs can reduce costs by avoiding expensive flavor extracts and they also have broad regulatory clearance.
Ingredion’s application knowledge and comprehensive portfolio can help you create great-tasting products without all the sugar and advance your brand’s sustainability goals.
Ingredion’s FMP portfolio includes ingredients that can be traced from seed to shelf. Our manufacturing processes and local supply chains are designed to reduce impact and support sustainability claims. Learn more about our practices by reading our 2021 Sustainability Report.
