Embrace power over health
Almost everyone you meet has something to say about eating and living healthier — so they can age gracefully and live longer. But at what point does healthy eating truly help manage health issues?
Ingredion is your dedicated guide for nutritional ingredients and health claims. Our petition with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration — to allow a Type 2 diabetes risk reduction claim for our heavily researched HI-MAIZE® resistant starch — was approved and resulted in a qualified health claim that allows food manufacturers to link high-amylose maize resistant starch to a reduced risk of Type 2 diabetes on the packages of conventional foods.*
We have the industry-changing ingredients and tested experience you need to create products that will help consumers manage their health challenges. Our Ingredion Idea Labs® innovation centers around the world have a proven record of speed and agility in prototyping and product launches. Discover how some of the world’s most rigorous, science-based problem-solvers can help you achieve your formulation goals and push past the expected.
* FDA intends to consider exercising enforcement discretion for the following health claims:
- “High-amylose maize resistant starch may reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes. FDA has concluded that there is limited scientific evidence for this claim”
- “High-amylose maize resistant starch, a type of fiber, may reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes. FDA has concluded that there is limited scientific evidence for this claim”
