Clean label ingredients

Clean label is an influential movement, but how can manufacturers leverage its benefits and translate it into commercial success?

Simplify labels and satisfy consumers with clean label ingredients

Consumers are choosing clean label products all over the world

A clean label can help to ensure your product repeatedly gets chosen. Yet, when you have complex functionality and performance needs to consider, clean labels can present a challenge. Ingredion’s global reach and local knowledge can help you create authentic foods and beverages formulated with next-level ingredients consumers accept, expect and prefer.

We’re standing by to help you create rich and creamy yogurts that can withstand harsh processing conditions and canned or frozen stews with rich flavors and home-style textures that last longer on the shelf. In personal and home care, we can help you create hair conditioners with rich emollients and dishwashing detergents that don’t leave streaks or bubbles. With our naturally derived ingredients, you can formulate consumer-preferred products with label appeal — without compromising performance.
