Expertise and ingredients for beverage success.

 Your go-to resource for beverage formulation.


Ingredion is your go-to-resource for beverage formulation expertise.  And we have the portfolio of ingredients to help you meet your goals – from emulsion stability, clarity and improved appearance, to added nutrition, optimized texture and clean label. We can also help you with just the right amount of sweetness, with or without calorie reduction, plus optimize your costs.

We have what you need.
  • You want highly efficient emulsifiers for cost savings from processing to warehousing to shipping.
  • You want to be able to address trends for fortified beverages with naturally based emulsifiers for the delivery of flavors and actives.
  • You want high clarity in your nonalcoholic and alcoholic beverages – even those with oil-based flavors and actives.
  • You need a consistent and ready supply of high-quality beverage ingredients.
  • You want to be able to build back texture after removing or replacing ingredients for cost or nutrition reasons.
Ingredion can help you do this and more , especially with our two newest emulsifiers – Q-NATURALE® and PURITY GUM® Ultra – that deliver high oil loading and efficiency benefits not readily available from other technologies.
With our broad selection of ingredients and formulations experts, we can help you create your next beverage emulsion rapidly and cost efficiently.






New PURITY GUM Ultra high-efficiency emulsifier delivers exceptional turbidity and stability in soft and alcoholic beverage formulations. Cost effective, as well as function, PURITY GUM Ultra emulsifier carries a high oil load (20-24% at an economical 5-6% starch level), enabling you to achieve efficiencies in production, warehousing, shipping and labor costs by as much as 50%.
The new product delivers tough-to-formulate actives, such as omega-3s, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), vitamins and more in weighted and non-weighted systems, plus exceptional turbidity and stability in many types of beverage formulations. PURITY GUM Ultra is stable in all aging conditions – from room temperature to cold storage – and can be used to create clear and cloudy beverages.
It is made from waxy maize, a hybrid corn, which is a renewable resource, insulated from many of the supply issues seen with gum arabic.

Q-NATURALE® nature’s perfect emulsifier is a high efficiency ingredient to help you produce on-trend, clean-label beverages at higher margins, even in clear and alcoholic beverages.  Q-NATURALE emulsifier is sustainably sourced from the quillaja tree in Chile, with organic versions available, eliminating many of the pricing and supply issues often see with gum arabic.


It carries a high oil load  at low use levels – up to four times higher than traditional systems – allowing for efficiencies across your whole process, from emulsion production to transportation and storage.  It comes in a liquid form for easy dispersion, and delivers tough-to-formulate actives, such as omega-3s, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), vitamins and challenging colors, such as beta carotene. It works well in weighted and non-weighted formulations and can often eliminate costly weighting agents.

 Starch Emulsifiers


Starch Emulsifiers


We also have a range of modified starch-based systems that also provide production advantages, consumer benefits, cost savings and consistency of supply. Ingredion’s emulsion and cloud stabilizer product line-up includes PURITY GUM® 2000, 1773 and BE and NATIONAL™ 3700 starches that effectively replace gum arabic, provide  good cold temperature stability and allow for production of flavor concentrates and stable oil emulsions at lower usage levels.


The Ingredion starch range includes several modified and functional native starches that add viscosity, enhance creaminess and mouthcoating, and provide a pulpy texture and opacity. Check out our new selector guide for the complete lineup.
