Use research to tap into consumer needs.
 

 Inside insight.

 
​You know there's more to designing the next generation of food products than predicting trends. Ingredion knows that too. Our state-of-the-art consumer research techniques can help you stay abreast of new developments. Here's some of what we've found.

Wholesome image

We know from consumer research that "wholesome" and "better for you" foods are in high demand. But with their busy lives, consumers still want the convenience of prepared foods. Our NOVATION® range of clean-label starches enables food manufacturers to meet consumer demand for wholesome, convenient foods.
 

 A taste for success

 

A taste for success

Together we can listen to consumers and find success. Here's an example that shows how.

A major U.S. retailer was making its own line of yogurt products. But we thought a different formulation would reduce the retailer's costs and improve texture. We carried out consumer trials against the leading national brand and prototype alternatives.

Our customer was impressed with the improved consumer perception of the prototypes and agreed to move forward with further trials. So we reformulated the customer's yogurt line using its processing system. When the reformulated product hit the shelves, purchase intent grew and the retailer outscored the market leader on key textural attributes. We ended up optimizing 14 yogurt varieties in four months.
 

 Combining claims

 

Combining claims

Touting your product's health benefits is a good thing. But just like having the right ingredients, a product should offer the right combination of claims to attract consumers. Ingredion can help you identify the claims that add value to your products.

Across all categories, consumers are increasing their consumption of foods with dietary fiber. Hi-maize® resistant starch offers manufacturers simple ways of tapping into the value of healthy claim combinations. We can help you customize recipes to achieve the optimum combination of marketable benefits.
