10 Oct 2017 --- Tate & Lyle PLC is set to more than double capacity of its non-GMO MALTOSWEET maltodextrin product line at its facility in Boleraz, Slovakia, over the next two years to meet the increasing global demand. This major expansion of food grade and infant food grade non-GMO MALTOSWEET maltodextrin is expected to be completed in 2019.

MALTOSWEET Maltodextrin is a nutritive corn-based specialty sweetener made from locally sourced non-GMO dent and waxy corn starch. It is available in powder and granular formats. Maltodextrin acts as a binder, viscosity provider, fat replacer and bulking agent. The ingredient is used in a wide range of food and beverages such as infant formula, sports drinks, dairy desserts and sauces. 

MALTOSWEET Maltodextrins and dried glucose syrups are well suited for use with a combination of other ingredients as they offer bulking properties. They are neutral products which are extremely stable and soluble, making them ideal for dry mix applications and dissolving in cold water.

Its reduced osmolality improves digestibility compared to lactose, dextrose and other mono and disaccharides. MALTOSWEET maltodextrins and dried glucose syrups are the ideal ingredients for use in sports and dietary products, providing a sustained energy release as the maltodextrins are metabolized in the body.

Speaking to FoodIngredientsFirst, Sebastian Lemke, Global Product Manager, Sweeteners, Tate & Lyle PLC, says: “Demand for high-quality non-GMO maltodextrins has particularly increased over recent years, driven in part by high usage by European manufacturers in the baby food sector. Tate & Lyle’s MALTOSWEET maltodextrins are already helping these manufacturers to capitalize on particularly high and growing consumer demand in the Asia Pacific region.”

Joan Braca, President, Speciality Food Ingredients, Tate & Lyle also explains: “Tate & Lyle’s quality management systems ensure our non-GMO MALTOSWEET maltodextrin achieves the high-quality standards our customers look for, particularly manufacturers of infant and growing-up formula.”

“This expansion will enable us to meet growing customer demand for non-GMO maltodextrins, and particularly in the infant food sector for regions such as Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific. It will also further strengthen our specialty food ingredients solutions offering worldwide.”
