Optimize texture in your snacks

Set your snacks apart with ingredients that inspire    

When it comes to snacks, consumers want the right mix of irresistible tastes and textures, and they want healthier, reduced-sugar and -calorie options they can feel good about eating. Translate consumer desires into delectable creations with Ingredion’s snack texturizers, plant proteins and flours, fibers and more to deliver the crunchy, crispy, chewy snacking experiences consumers crave. 

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 region we call CRINCHY™ textures. Choose from a core of proven baked snack texturizers for your sheeted cracker and fabricated chip texture needs.

Not crunchy or crispy but CRINCHY

Create light and crispy extruded snacks. Our portfolio of ingredients for snacks allows you to control expansion while differentiating the texture of your products. In addition, you can create better-for-you snacks that are lower in fat — because they aren’t fried — and fortify your snacks with ingredients that address consumer trends.

Trim fat and calories in your baked snacks or create a non-GMO, gluten-free or plant-based version while maintaining the same great texture with our snack texturizers. 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 sheeted snacks, baked tortilla chips, fabricated baked potato chips and baked crackers, rely on our ingredients and expertise to help you find solutions.

Deliver everything consumers want, from satisfying texture to reduced sugar, higher protein and fiber, and fewer unrecognizable ingredients. Add the nutritional benefits of pulse proteins to a wide range of cereals and cereal bars to address demand for plant-based, protein-rich, clean label products.
