Chicago (US), 27 June 2022 - Tate & Lyle, a leading global provider of food and beverage ingredients and solutions, invites Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) FIRST attendees to experience its full suite of ingredients and solutions by visiting the Interactive Kitchen experience located at booth #S-0600.

  • Improving Lives for Generations - introducing our purpose
    The IFT FIRST Annual Event & Expo occurs on July 10-13, 2022 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL with Tate & Lyle located at exhibit booth #S-0600.
  • Booth visitors will explore a fully functional prep-kitchen and delicious food samples containing Tate & Lyle ingredients, including the recently acquired Artesa® Chickpea Flour and Artesa® Chickpea Protein.

Modelled after the Tate & Lyle “Collaborate at Home Kitchen,” IFT attendees will experience the Interactive Kitchen from the perspective of consumers – who can open any fridge or cupboard and find products containing our ingredients and solutions. Tate & Lyle collaborates with customers to meet these changing consumer demands with science-led solutions and expertise that delivers on both taste and nutrition across food and beverage categories.

“We are thrilled to be back at IFT live and in person,” said Jessica Wilford, Head of Category Development and Planning, NOAM. “We will have experts on hand in every category—beverages, dairy, soups, sauces, dressings, bakery and nutrition—so that visitors to our booth can discuss in depth how partnering with Tate & Lyle creates innovative solutions to meet consumer needs for tastier and healthier food.”

Plant-based Ingredients

Tate & Lyle’s recent acquisition of the Artesa® Chickpea Flour and Artesa® Chickpea Protein, both highly functional ingredients, offer a superior, premium taste and mouthfeel experience. “Our Artesa® Chickpea Flour is an extremely versatile ingredient,” said Michael Spinelli, Tate & Lyle Director, Research & Development Proteins. “Artesa® Chickpea Protein ingredients fulfil top consumer trends for plant-based formulations across food and drink, and in nutrition fortification, making it one of our most exciting solutions.”

Clean Label & Health Benefits

Tate & Lyle’s CLARIA® Functional Clean-Label Starch portfolio is helping manufacturers worldwide meet increased consumer demand for cleaner labels with formulations that are similar in functionality to a modified food starch. Its PROMITOR® Soluble Fibre, with over two times the digestive tolerance of inulin, is helping food and beverage companies create products that reduce the possibility of digestive discomfort, ensuring consumer acceptance and comfort.

Tate & Lyle’s mission of transforming lives through the science of food goes hand-in-hand with the company’s strong commitment to sustainability. “Caring for our planet runs through everything we do from our commitment to sustainable corn growing, to waste and water use reductions, to eliminating scope 2 emissions by 2030,” added Wilford.
