"New Clean Label Product Innovations in Snacks & Confectioneries"
The pressure is on for companies to reduce the amount of sweeteners within foods and beverages. With many countries imposing sugar taxes in view of the rising obesity rate and the trend for healthy eating, brandowners are seeking solutions to reduce sugar content in their product formulation and also going natural.
According to market data, consumer demand for clean-label organic products especially for baby foods is growing with a large number of organic corn/potato starches on the market.
To stay ahead starch producers are striving to achieve organic positioning to cater to growing market needs.
“What are the latest innovations on specialty ingredients modified in a natural way"
“How do you replace modified starch for baking solutions, without losing the products’ shelf life ? What are the latest culinary innovations that balance clean eating with taste & texture ?"
"How do you match wheat alternatives for gluten free
In a highly competitive market, baking companies need to be able to stand out, either by making their products, cleaner labelled, gluten-free or reformulated (with less fat, sugar or salt).
The Bakery Academy has developed a few applications and new products/mixes without modified starch.
Legumes/pulses are a very special type of crop and characterised as a sustainable source of highly nutritious food and feed. Carbohydrate content in pulses is 60–65% and starch constitutes the major fraction of the carbohydrates. Pulse starch is consisted of amylose and amylopectin, and starches from various pulses have different physicochemical, pasting and technological properties that offers benefits of its own which are attractive to today’s marketers and formulators.
According to a pea ingredient supplier "The current trends such as cleaner labels, including the elimination of corn and soy, coupled with tapioca and potato starches becoming more expensive, has left the door open for pea starch to shine".
Starch is an indispensable ingredient in many of the products we use and consume every day from food to textiles to packagingThis year, the European Commission strategy for plastics in a circular economy strongly proposes for bio-based materials as crucial innovative solutions for the development of a sustainable, circular plastics economy. Using carbohydrate feedstocks for the production of plastics is an important step to decrease the dependency of the plastics industry on finite fossil carbon resources.
Why France ?
Aiming to be the global leader in the bioeconomy, France has successfully built on a strong and competitive agricultural sector and its technological expertise to make bio-based products a competing alternative to fossil-based equivalents . Its agro industrial cluster is home to millions of hectares of farmed land of sugar beets, barley, potatoes, protein crops etc. The government has ambitious plans to maximize the valorization of these renewable resources for food and non-food applications with a focus on four strategic areas: agro-materials, bioenergy, bio-based chemicals and ingredients.
Strategically held in the charming city of Strasbourg, CMT will host the 3rd Starch World EUROPE conference that brings together all starch & derivatives players to discuss the opportunities and shifts in the markets.
