Set your snacks apart from the crowd
When it comes to snacks, consumers want the right mix of irresistible tastes and textures, and they want healthier options they can feel good about eating. Translate consumer desires into delectable snacks with Ingredion.
Boost the nutritional content of your snacks with our new line of clean label pulse proteins, or add fiber, digestive and weight management benefits with HI-MAIZE® resistant starch. And you can deliver the crunchy, crispy, chewy snacking experiences consumers crave. Whatever snacks you produce, you can meet the trends, from Health & Nutrition to Clean & Simple and more, with our ingredient solutions and formulation expertise.
Chips, crisps and crackers
Achieve the just-right textures that make all the difference in snacks. Range from tender and delicate crispy textures to snapping or shattering crunchy textures—and in between to a new region we call CRINCHY™ textures. Choose from a core of proven baked snack texturizers for your sheeted cracker and fabricated chip texture needs.
Extruded snacks and pellets
Get light and crispy extruded snacks. Our portfolio of ingredients allows you to control expansion while differentiating the texture of your snack. In addition, you can create better-for-you snacks that are lower in fat because they aren’t fried, and fortify your snacks with things like protein and dietary fiber to answer the Health & Nutrition trend.
Trim fat and calories in your baked snacks or create a non-GMO, gluten-free version while maintaining the same great texture. Or reduce breakage and save money with our starches, which create the binding power needed to prevent snack breakage and fractures—so your products will be delivered to the consumer looking just the way they did when you sent them out. Whatever your challenges in baked snacks, rely on our ingredients and expertise to help you solve them.
Cereals and cereal bars
Add the nutritional benefits of protein to a wide range of cereals and cereal bars to address demand for protein-rich, clean label products. Plentiful and sustainably sourced, VITESSENCE™ Pulse-based proteins can boost the nutrition profile of your formulations and help support popular label claims such as non-GMO, gluten-free and low allergen.
Nutritional bars are becoming mainstream products driven by a healthy image. When you work with us, you can deliver everything consumers want, from satisfying texture to reduced sugar, higher protein and fiber, and fewer unrecognizable ingredients. Find out what your nutritional bars can offer.
