Consumer demand for natural food ingredients, functional foods, among other trends are growing and forcing manufacturers to continuously develop and innovate. At Food ingredients Europe (Fi Europe), visitors can learn about pioneering product ideas, new taste sensations and health promoting ingredients, while networking with the world’s leading ingredients suppliers. From the 19-21 November, inFrankfurt, leading ingredient producers will present new trends and a sweeping range of food innovations. Here are some highlights:

Barry Callebaut: First Chocolate Manufacturer to Use Health Claim

The world’s largest chocolate manufacturer, Barry Callebaut, is the first company in the cocoa and chocolate industry that may use a scientifically founded health claim. “Cocoa flavanols helps maintain the elasticity of blood vessels, which contributes to normal blood flow” – this claim can now be used to declare that a daily intake of 200 mg of cocoa flavanols contributes to healthy blood circulation. This method preserves 80% of the flavanols in ACTICOA® chocolate in the fermentation stage of chocolate production.

The exhibitor BENEO, from Mannheim, also offer a number of health promoting ingredients for products in demand with consumers. At Fi Europe 2013, this functional ingredients manufacturer will be presenting comprehensive concepts, targeted at helping food and beverage producers satisfy the demand for healthy lifestyles. The company will present a various number of innovative ingredients, for example, nutrients with low glycaemic carbohydrates and properties that prevent tooth decay.

ADM will be presenting a new and extensive product portfolio at Fi Europe. This time, its chocolate expertise will take centre stage. ADM has a variety of high quality chocolates, cocoa butters, powders and liqueurs to present. For example, the cocoa powder DeZaan D11SQ will be introduced for the first time inEurope. D11SQ bridges the gap between popular brown and red powders by offering a broad range of applications, with baked goods, beverages, ice creams plus more.
