Plant-Based and Clean Label trends take centre stage in this quarter’s North American Prototype Pantry


Summer may be winding down, but the strong influence of consumer health continues to shape food and beverage choices.

We understand the importance of adapting to evolving needs while still delivering on the taste consumers know and love. The increased demand for natural, simple and flexible diets is further driving the expansion of vegetarian, vegan and other plant-based formulations. We know that consumers continue to seek healthier foods that they can trust, with the nutrition and ingredient labels being a key focus area when making purchase decisions as consumers strive to meet their unique dietary needs.

Tate & Lyle offers an extensive portfolio of ingredients and solutions to ensure your needs are met, even as consumer dietary styles change. Explore some of our featured prototypes in this quarter’s pantry below and see how we can help you tackle your toughest plant-based and clean label formulation challenges.

Ultra-Filtered Milk + Oat Milk Creamer

Our forward-thinking food scientists created this dairy + plant hybrid creamer to reach those consumers who want to incorporate more plant-based foods into their diets but are still skeptical of the taste. By using an ultra-filtered milk, this prototype further appeals to the modern consumer by offering less sugar in addition to less than 1 gram of lactose.

Vegan Alfredo Sauce

As consumers cook more at home and incorporate plant-based foods into their meals, brands can launch clean label, plant- based, and/or vegan options. Thanks to hero ingredients like our CLARIA® functional clean label starches, it is absolutely possible to match the rich, creamy taste one expects from a traditional alfredo sauce.

Gluten-Free Cheesy Chickpea Cracker

Not even the cracker category is immune to the impacts of renewed consumer interest in a more nutritious diet. This last pantry feature offers both texture and taste with appealing ingredients and added nutrition to capture interest from consumer groups who desire premium offerings tailored to their dietary needs.
