Tate & Lyle Expands Specialty Starch Capacity

LONDONTate & Lyle, a global provider of food ingredients and solutions, has expanded its instant starch production capacity at its European flagship manufacturing facility in Koog aan de Zaan, The Netherlands.

The expansion will enable the company to meet the growing demand for specialty starches, including its MERIGEL range of pre-gelatinized starches that are used as a thickener or stabilizer in a wide range of applications, including instant puddings, pie fillings, soups, sauces, salad dressings, mayonnaise and snack products.

Two key factors are driving the growth of our MERIGEL range: firstly product innovation, such as fat reduction or exciting new developments in recipes, and secondly, the need for non-GM ingredients in a number of markets is also a key driver in Europe, as well as in some other markets around the world," said James Blunt, senior vice president Product Management Specialty Food Ingredients.

Commenting on the expansion, Luis Fernandez, vice president of Global Applications, said: The MERIGEL range is perfect for manufacturers who are committed to functional food innovation. Our global innovation network helps manufacturers undertake new product development with functional food starches and our increased production capacity lets us better meet the growing demand for this versatile and innovative range."
