| Filed in:


Tate & Lyle announces it has fully commissioned its new STA-LITE® Polydextrose line in Koog, the Netherlands. The new facility, which is the first of its kind in Europe, was built in response to the increasing demand for functional food ingredients.

With only 1 kcal/gram, STA-LITE® Polydextrose is a premium, low calorie bulking agent used to provide body and texture in reduced calorie, no added sugar and/or high fibre foods. Polydextrose is also a soluble fibre with prebiotic properties that is very well tolerated, has a low glycemic response, is clean tasting and easy to use.
Its process stability enables manufacturers to develop new healthier versions of a wide range of foods and beverage products at a low cost-in-use. The ingredient is available in liquid and powder form.

Jerome Tauzin, Product Manager comments: “The commissioning of the STA-LITE® line is an important step for Tate & Lyle. We are proud to be sole manufacturer of Polydextrose in Europe which means our European customers will benefit from a shortened supply chain and further reduced costs.

“Our consumer research has highlighted that European consumers are becoming more health conscious. Many people actively manage their weight and are aware that fibre can bring health benefits and in particular in maintaining digestive health. STA-LITE® Polydextrose helps our customers meet that consumer trend.”
