Optimize texture in your snacks

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 creations with Ingredion’s snack texturizers, pulse proteins and flours, fibers, and more.

Boost the nutritional content of your snacks with our our continually growing portfolio of plant-based, clean label pulse proteins and flours, or add fiber, digestive and weight management benefits. 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 broad portfolio of ingredient solutions and formulation expertise.    

Achieve the just-right textures that make all the difference in snacks. Create products ranging 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.
