Designing the winning ingredients of tomorrow
As consumer needs evolve, so too must the ingredients and functionalities in foods and beverages.
We have development teams dedicated to the three key areas that we believe will drive success in this market: wellness, texturants and sweeteners.
All are areas in which Tate & Lyle has been leading the market - and we intend to continue, taking our customers with us.
Teams of food chemists, biochemists, enzymologists and process technologists work closely with academic and industrial partners across the globe to create the unique science needed to produce market-leading ingredients.
We involve our customers early on in the ingredient development process too. So don’t be surprised to find our ingredient development teams asking for your expert opinion!
However, for us, development doesn’t begin and end in the lab. That’s why our pilot plants are a key part of the product development process. They enable us to produce sufficient quantities of a new product, and test its performance in realistic manufacturing conditions, so our customers can run qualification trials.
From digestive health to blood glucose response, Tate & Lyle’s human clinical studies follow the highest standards of human research methodology available. This ensures our products meet and exceed our customers’ expectations – of wellness ingredients that provide physiological benefits to consumers.
Our nutritionists work with renowned research institutions such as The Tate & Lyle Health Research Centre at King’s College London, and other top quality research institutes around the world, engaged in finding and validating ingredients with nutritional benefits.
Meanwhile, our regulatory experts stay on top of developments regarding health and nutrition claims. They share up-to-date knowledge with our research teams and provide orientation to the business teams – to ensure that our ingredient research is relevant, and to help you ensure that your new development project is successful.
We study how our ingredients interact with others in the food matrix, and apply different methods to combine ingredients that deliver new and enhanced functional benefits to your foods and beverages.
Our particle engineering team: ceates new delivery forms for functional ingredients, taking their performance beyond that of single ingredients or simple blends.
Powdered systems offer a unique way to introduce new, value-added products to consumers, in a convenient and appealing system for today’s lifestyles.
In applications where blending is not enough, Tate & Lyle particle engineering technology can take your product to the next level.
With one of the most precise and repeatable agglomeration processes in the industry, enabling uniform dispersal in liquids, we can turn your formulation challenges into opportunities.
That is why we have introduced an open innovation team to scout for new technologies that can be enhanced and developed by Tate & Lyle strengths in manufacturing, sales and applications.
