Ingredion displays 'on-the-go' meals at Gulfood Manufacturing
Ingredion will showcase the latest consumer trends and ingredient innovations in three recipe prototypes at Gulfood Manufacturing in Dubai. The company will feature two ‘on-the-go’ meals and a premium vegan dessert at the annual food and beverage processing forum.
The Ingredion recipe concepts made with its texturisers, starches and food systems are:
- A premium, creamy vegan dessert featuring its new clean label texturising starches, served with a dairy-free drinking yoghurt.
- A mini-vegetable pizza (pictured) with a reduced-protein cheese and a rich tomato sauce made using two Ingredion tapioca starches for viscosity and extra pulpiness.
- A succulent chicken breast salad featuring an Ingredion modified starch for excellent water binding and an egg-free curried mango dressing.
Ingredion’s Senior Culinologist will attend the event to freshly prepare dishes that tackle industry challenges such as affordability and specific label requirements, while meeting consumer trends. Four Technical Demo Kit samples will feature several prototypes that showcase consumer trends and flavours in the region, including samples of reduced-fat mayonnaise, low-fat dessert and crispy, flavoured nuts.
“The Middle East and North African food and beverage sector is predicted to achieve 7.4% annual growth over the next three years. Coupled with consumers’ willingness to try out new trends and desire for the next big thing, this presents an opportunity for food and beverage manufacturers to tap into this developing market,” said Esen Kural, Business Development Manager at Ingredion Middle East.
A team of experts from the company will attend Gulfood Manufacturing, to help attendees with their individual reformulation challenges. By mimicking consumer-preferred texture attributes, the recipes and demo kits, available to taste on the stand, showcase how to deliver the latest consumer trends.
Taking place 29–31 October at the Dubai World Trade Centre, the Gulfood Manufacturing event features exhibitors from around the world, showcasing a range of processing technologies to help manufacturers produce higher-quality products.
