Your source for all things involved with food texture.  

 We have the feel.

It's the creamy in desserts. The crispy in waffles. The pulpy in sauces. Texture is what gives your products their special feel. And Ingredion is where you can find the food texture expertise you need.

We understand food texture and we know how to make it work. With relevant consumer insights, deep texture sensory evaluation knowledge, broad technical expertise and a versatile texturizer portfolio, we help you create differentiated, winning products that keep consumers coming back for more. We even “talk texture” with our TEXICON™ food texture language, which translates the food texture experience to help you make better products faster.

Our texture formulation specialists provide ingredients to match your consumers' needs as well as your own. In our extensive and unique toolbox of proven food texture ingredient solutions, we will find your perfect match.

For example, look at our line of N-DULGE® co-texturizers for dairy applications. We'll help you select one of our base starches to reach the right system viscosity. Then you can add a co-texturizer to fine-tune the system to get just right texture - from peanut-butter-like to custard-like and everywhere in between.

Your snack food consumers want the right mix of satisfying crunch and crisp. The Ingredion texture team can help translate those desires into great products. Sometimes you may feel like your food or beverage product needs a makeover. Or maybe you need to reformulate when a certain ingredient has to be removed. Ingredion's PRECISA® Cling​ and PRECISA® Cream​ systems allow you quickly change the texture of new or current products or build back texture when you need to reformulate. Developed using our unique DIAL-IN® Texture Technology , our PRECISA systems can help you match an industry benchmark, enhance positive textural attributes or reduce negative ones.
