Tate & Lyle Launches New Resource to Help Food and Beverage Manufacturers Unlock the Benefits of Fibre

Tate & Lyle, a leading global provider of food ingredients and solutions, has launched a new website dedicated to fibre fortification: www.tateandlylefibres.com. This new website serves as a resource to help food and beverage manufacturers meet increasing demand from consumers globally for fibre-enriched food by featuring nutritional information, consumer research and in-depth application insights. It also provides details of Tate & Lyle’s extensive fibre portfolio and solutions: PROMITOR® Soluble Fibre, PromOat® Beta Glucan and STA-LITE® Polydextrose.

“Consumers around the world are not getting enough fibre in their diets,” says Nancy Gaul, Senior Category Marketing Manager, Health and Wellness, Tate & Lyle. “This represents a major opportunity for food and beverage manufacturers to respond by providing great-tasting fibre-fortified products. Tate & Lyle has a unique range of fibres and deep formulation expertise, and we are excited to work with our customers to help them bring extraordinary products to market.”

Meeting Demand For Healthier and Tastier Options

Consumers increasingly understand the health benefits of fibre, with more than half of consumers globally looking to add more fibre to their diets1. In addition to their health benefits, such as digestive health, fibres also have functional attributes that can help meet consumer demand for other nutrition claims, such as ‘reduced sugar’ and ‘low calorie’.

Tate&LyleFibresCookieCompressed“In today’s food and beverage marketplace, manufacturers are wading through an ever-changing tide of consumer demand for healthier and tastier options,” says Courtney Kingery, Director, Global Product Management, Health and Wellness, Tate & Lyle. “Consumers are looking for options that offer digestive health benefits, include fewer calories from sugar, cleaner labels and the list goes on. Fibres can actually help manufacturers meet all of these needs.”

Making Fibre Formulation Easier

The new website was developed to assist food and beverage manufacturers with their challenges around fibre fortification. The following resources are available:

* ‘Innovative Solutions to Increase Fibre Intake and Promote Health’ provides manufacturers with research and information on science-based ingredient solutions to help bridge the fibre intake gap.

* ‘Unlock the Benefits of Fibre Like Never Before’ provides criteria to use when selecting a fibre, to ensure that manufacturers are delivering on the taste and sensory experience their consumers expect.

* ‘Fibre Fortification Challenge’ looks at the strengths of soluble corn fibre, including the functional benefits and digestive tolerance levels.

* Finally, ‘Beverages Made Better with Oat Beta Glucan’ covers key considerations when formulating with oat beta glucan in beverages.

Tate & Lyle’s extensive fibre portfolio can make formulating fibre-rich products easier. Food and beverage manufacturers can access information on the following fibre solutions:

* PROMITOR® Soluble Fibre unlocks superior digestive tolerance in high-fibre and sugar-reduced products, while maintaining sensory expectations and ease of use. In fact, research shows that PROMITOR® Soluble Fibre has more than two times the digestive tolerance of inulin2. PROMITOR® Soluble Fibre is easily incorporated into a variety of applications, including beverages, confections, bars, cereal, meal replacements, yoghurt, ice cream, bakery, dressings and sauces.

* PromOat® Beta Glucan unlocks a natural fibre from oats with superior solubility3 that helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels. PromOat® Beta Glucan is developed from non-genetically modified (GM) Swedish oats, with no chemicals added during processing, and may be suitable to help create gluten-free4, cleaner-label and reduced-fat/-calorie products. Its exceptional solubility makes PromOat® Beta Glucan ideal in beverages such as smoothies, where it also contributes to indulgent mouthfeel and smooth texture. In addition, it can be easily incorporated in a variety of other applications, including bakery products, supplements, meal replacements, soups and sauces.

Tate&LyleFibresCreamyDrinkCompressed* STA-LITE® Polydextrose unlocks calorie reduction, while enabling significant fibre enrichment and ease of use for manufacturers. It helps reduce calories by rebalancing bulk, viscosity and mouthfeel in reduced-sugar/-fat product formulations and is ideal for calorie reduction and sugar-free applications. STA-LITE® Polydextrose is easily incorporated into a variety of applications, including bakery, dairy, confectionery, beverages, sauces and dressing.
