Tate & Lyle Opens New Capacity at Oat Ingredients Facility in Sweden

Tate & Lyle has formally opened its expanded capacity at its oat ingredients manufacturing facility in Kimstad, Sweden. The expansion, which is part of the US$100 million investment in additional capacity for Speciality Food Ingredients announced in May 2014, means that capacity at the facility has increased more than tenfold since it was acquired by Tate & Lyle in 2013.

At the facility, Tate & Lyle uses a unique patented manufacturing process, without the addition of chemicals, to transform locally sourced Swedish oats into high value ingredients such as PromOat® Beta Glucan and PrOatein® Oat Protein which are used in a wide variety of food and beverages including breakfast cereals, smoothies, baked goods, bars and sports shakes.The facility also produces Avenacare® Oat Beta Glucan for use in the personal care and cosmetics industries.

Following completion of the expansion earlier in 2016, the Kimstad facility underlined its commitment to quality and food safety by obtaining an AA-grade BRC Global Standard for Food Safety certification.

Joan Braca, President of Speciality Food Ingredients, Tate & Lyle, says: “We continue to see growing demand for oat ingredients across the world as consumers look for healthier and tastier foods. Through the expansion of our facility in Sweden, and our deep formulation expertise, we will be able to help our customers develop more products with health-benefit claims and functional benefits.”

Tate&LyleLogoCaroline Sanders, Sales Director at Oat Nutrition, Tate & Lyle comments: “PromOat® Beta Glucan is a source of beta glucan – the soluble dietary fibre in oat bran that provides important functional and health benefits. The use of PromOat® can give access to a number of health claims, such as lowering blood cholesterol and lessening the risk of coronary heart disease. Enriching foods and beverages with this natural, heart-healthy oat fibre means we can offer new growth opportunities to our customers.”

She adds: “Oat protein is rich in certain essential amino acids that are important for muscle growth and recovery. And what’s more, our PrOatein® ingredient tastes good, making it ideal to meet the fast-growing consumer demand for nutritious, protein-enriched foods – including vegan foods.”

Tate & Lyle operates through two global divisions, Speciality Food Ingredients and Bulk Ingredients, supported by its Innovation and Commercial Development and Global Operations groups. The group’s strategy is to become a leading global provider of Speciality Food Ingredients through a disciplined focus on growth, and by driving Bulk Ingredients for sustained cash generation to fuel this growth.

Speciality Food Ingredients consists of three platforms: Texturants, which includes speciality starches and stabilisers; Sweeteners, which comprises nutritive sweeteners and our range of no-calorie sweeteners including SPLENDA® Sucralose; and our Health and Wellness portfolio which includes speciality fibres and our salt-reduction offering. Additionally, our Food Systems business provides a wide variety of blended ingredient solutions.

Tate & Lyle Bulk Ingredients includes bulk sweeteners, industrial starches and fermentation products (primarily acidulants). Corn co-products from both divisions are primarily sold as animal feed.
