Food and Beverage Ingredients

Overview Industry Overview:

The menu of ingredients changes constantly, reflecting new taste trends – fruity malt drinks, Greek yogurt, craft beer – and health, safety and economic issues. The best ingredients – artificial or natural – are essential as R&D seeks winning, financially sound recipes that deliver taste, texture, aroma and other factors.

Food and beverage ingredient providers must be prepared to adapt to prolific, ever-shifting trends in the industry. New applications and reformulations are in demand, but they require great understanding of food technology and the best use of ingredients. Prebiotics, for example, help offset the fiber deficit that many consumers worry about. The need for ingredient knowledge grows daily – protein fortification, antimicrobial value, processing efficiency etc.

  • Formulation
  • Packaging
  • Routing, transportation, storage
