03 Apr 2017 --- Tate & Lyle PLC have announced the introduction of its tapioca-based CLARIA Bliss starch to the Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) region, responding to growing demand from consumers for cleaner label products.

An extension to the line of CLARIA Functional Clean-Label Starches, the launch of CLARIA Bliss in EMEA follows its debut at the Institute of Food Technologists Food Expo in Chicago last year.

CLARIA Bliss has functionalities like modified tapioca starches and can help manufacturers develop high quality and great tasting products. With tolerance to shear, heat and acid, even under extreme conditions like ultra-high temperatures (UHT) and homogenisation, CLARIA Bliss makes it easier than ever for food manufacturers to develop products with cleaner labels and differentiated texture. 

Its launch follows market research from Innova Market Insights that shows the number of food products defined as clean-label sharply increased in Europe in categories such as chilled desserts (+54%) or ready meals (+39%) between 2014 and 20161.  

Yves Maltête, VP Global Product Management, Texturants at Tate & Lyle, said: “At a time when 86% of European consumers regard food and beverages as processed if they contain ingredients they don’t recognise, CLARIA Bliss can help manufacturers maintain great taste in their products. It will also allow them to simplify their ingredient list in a variety of applications, including delicate dairy desserts, clear sauces, chilled ready meals or filling of fresh baked goods.”

CLARIA Bliss delivers on the growing tapioca-based starch trend, which has seen launches of products including tapioca ingredients increasing on average by 25% each year since 2010. Tapioca is popular among manufacturers and consumers for its clean flavour and colour, soft gel texture and non-GMO and gluten free attributes. CLARIA Bliss thickens and sets to form a soft, translucent gel that is especially desirable in applications like a dairy custard or in speciality sauces.

Yves Maltête continued: “There is an enormous opportunity for our customers around the world to simplify ingredient lists and take advantage of demand for cleaner labelled products. We want to partner with our customers to help them meet these challenges, and retain their competitive edge locally and globally. With our expanded CLARIA line now including CLARIA Bliss, it’s easier than ever to make that a reality.”

Spotlight on salt (Part 2): Overcoming reformulation challenges

15 Feb 2018 --- A large challenge for all salt replacer products is the clean label trend. Consumers are demanding that only products should be used which are available in their own kitchen cupboard. Most of the salt replacers use potassium chloride to replace the sodium chloride, but potassium chloride has not the image to be an ingredient from the kitchen cupboard. Looking at the nutritional value of potassium chloride it is clearly beneficial to use it instead of sodium chloride as most consumers have a lack of potassium in their diet while eating too much sodium. As a result of this also the WHO recommends increasing the potassium intake in the daily diet while reducing the sodium intake. In the second part of our "Spotlight on Salt" report, we look at how reformulation challenges can be overcome. You can read Part 1 of this report here.
