Tea and coffee to quench humankind’s thirst
Create naturally functional and indulgent, relaxing and refreshing teas and coffees. Today, beverage manufacturers are challenged to reduce sugar while maintaining the sweet touch that so many consumers love. Fortifying with functional ingredients and focusing on the heathy attributes of tea and coffee is also critical. Ingredion offers options to increase the nutritional content or decrease the caloric level of RTD teas, while maintaining a sweet appeal.
Tea is regarded by consumers as the ideal beverage for relaxation and refreshment. Its natural content of antioxidants makes it nature’s healthy refreshing drink of choice. However, most consumers prefer tea with a sweet touch, but without the calories associated with typical sweeteners. Ingredion can help you address this challenge with stevia and our DIAL-IN® sweetness and texture technology. We created a series of prototypes to showcase our ingredients use in calorie reduction.
Coffee, besides being a natural source of energy and antioxidants, is a traditional social beverage. Coffee can also fit very diverse tastes with its almost unlimited ways of preparation with cream, cold brewed, flavored, with almond milk, instant, with coconut water, etc. Besides a complete sweetener portfolio, Ingredion features a wide array of beverage texturizers and suspension agents to enhance mouthfeel and maintain uniformity throughout all its shelf life.
