WILMINGTON, Del. – Healthier foods that deliver on a wellness promise can be difficult for food processors to achieve, but ingredient innovations from Ashland Specialty Ingredients, a commercial unit of Ashland Inc. (NYSE: ASH), are bringing those capabilities to manufacturers. These innovations will be showcased at Food Ingredients Europe Natural Ingredients exhibition, Nov. 29 – Dec. 1, in Paris Nord Villepinte, France.     
“At this year’s Fi Europe and Ni expo, we are featuring our Benecel™ methylcellulose (MC) and hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (HPMC) products.

Ashland Specialty Ingredients’ food ingredient products deliver a number of sought-after attributes including:
•    Reduce oil uptake in fried foods;
•    Reduce sugar with enhanced mouthfeel in beverages;
•    Reduce milk fat with creamy mouthfeel in whipped toppings;
•    Reduce saturated fat in diets with meat substitutes; and
