Enhancing the goodness and natural appeal of dairy


Only Ingredion provides an ever-growing portfolio of naturally-based ingredients and expertise to help you produce on-trend natural and clean label dairy and dairy-based products. . . without compromising key sensory attributes, functionality and consumers acceptance.


As the innovation leader in clean-label formulations, Ingredion offers you the expertise and ingredients to develop appealing new dairy and dairy-based products that achieve your goals while deliciously retaining your “natural” claims.


Patented NOVATION® functional native starches deliver the same functionality and shelf-life stability as traditional modified starches, with the advantage of cleaner labeling.
More than 35 different NOVATION ingredients pioneered over the past two decades give you just what you need for your formulation, process and label goals, from instant, cold-water swelling starches to organic varieties perfect for getting just the right texture. 


NOVATION PRIMA® and NOVATION® 8300 and 8600 provide the same shelf-life stability AND freeze/thaw stability (for frozen ready meals with dairy-based sauces and frozen dairy desserts) as modified starches, with a simpler label, for example “corn starch”.
The newest members of the NOVATION family are especially suited for dairy.
NOVATION® Indulge 3320 and NOVATION® Indulge 3340 helps you get a luscious thickness in reduced-fat indulgent dairy desserts without having to say, “modified starch” on the ingredient list. Click here for our fact sheet.
