Enabling ‘Better for You’ Foods
For food manufactures, we pair health-promoting ingredients and functional ingredients in the DuPont™ Danisco® range to improve the nutritional profile and create options for healthier life styles.
Sweet Solutions for Sugar Reduction
Given its link to tooth decay, obesity, diabetes and an increased focus from consumers on eating healthy, sugar has fallen out of favor.
Still, sugar plays a role in foods and beverages to enhance flavour release, provide a lingering sweet note, enhance the overall product stability, and create better viscosity and mouthfeel. DuPont Nutrition & Health provides a full suite of products to help you create sweet foods without a sour experience. Our robust sweeteners line can enable sugar-free, reduced sugar and no-sugar-added foods with a strong sustainability profile. And we can also offer a variety of products to replace the ‘off-note’ that results from replacing sugar.
The Power of Plant Protein
Globally, there is strong momentum for adding protein to foods as consumers become more interested in healthy eating and aware of the benefits that protein delivers. Higher protein diets are frequently used for weight management due to their ability to enhance energy expenditure and promote lean mass retention. Given the increased interest in plant-centered diets, plant-based protein ingredients are on the rise. The inclusion of soy protein into a balanced diet for weight management can support life-long health, including cardiometabolic benefits.
While formulating high protein ingredients is no easy task, at DuPont Nutrition & Health, we believe in the power of the plant to deliver the healthy nutrition experience.
Increased Fiber Intake
Nutritionists report that the average diet contains less than half the recommended fiber intake of 25 grams/day. DuPont Nutrition & Health has developed a dedicated ingredient portfolio that helps increase the fiber content of food and beverage products without compromising taste or mouthfeel. Our Litesse® family of products is extremely well tolerated by consumers, contains only 1kcal/g and has a wide range of applications.
