with all the process and shelf-life stability and texture benefits of products made with modified starches, but with “natural” or “organic” on the label, Ingredion has the ingredients and resources to help.




Consumer expectations regarding the quality, variety and origin of their foods are intense. Count on Ingredion to provide wholesome, Clean Label innovation with our nature-based ingredients. NOVATION® sets the standard for quality and functionality in a wide range of foods.

You get the processing benefits of a traditional modified starch but with a noticeable difference: simple ingredient descriptors.  NOVATION starches label according to their base descriptor, enabling you to put "all-natural" or "additive-free" on the front of your package and place a simple descriptor such as "corn starch" on the ingredient list.
New products in the NOVATION line include NOVATION Indulge 3320 Greek-style yogurt texture solution and NOVATION Indulge 3340 texture system for dairy products.
NOVATION Indulge 3320 is a cost effective alternative Greek-style yogurt production method delivers the thick and creamy texture consumers' desire.
NOVATION Indulge 3340 texture system is ideal for use in indulgent dairy deserts as well as fermented dairy products such as yogurt and sour cream.
