For several years, we’ve played an active part in the Institute of Food Technologists’ (IFT) annual meeting and Food Expos, and we’re delighted to be doing so again this year, with one difference…
In light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, this year we’re taking part in SHIFT20, the IFT’s new three-day all-virtual event and expo, examining how the industry is shifting how we formulate, package, and experience food science and technology.
The three-day virtual event begins on Monday 13 July, when our experts will be taking part in a live webinar on stevia, as well as updating the industry on allulose, approximately one year after the FDA approved the exemption of allulose from the ‘Sugars’ and ‘Added Sugars’ line of the Nutrition Facts Panel in the US. This is a timely discussion given the recent trend for low-calorie ice cream and confectionary options, and we’ll be sharing which key ingredients in our portfolio can help formulators reduce sugar and build back texture.
Day two will see us focus on consumer health, wellbeing and nutrition, with our nutrition scientists presenting a webinar on ‘The Health Influence of Fiber: It’s More Than You May Think!’. Other areas of conversation will include keto-friendly ingredients, fibre for calcium absorption, formulating high protein/high fibre products and adding fibre to beverages.
Finally, day three will see a focus on our commitment to sustainability, with examples of our ingredient portfolio suitable for plant power and meat alternative trends. In May we announced some ambitious new sustainability targets, in line with our company purpose of Improving Lives for Generations. Delegates will be able to tune in to learn more about commitment to caring for our planet.
