Food Technology Industrial Achievement Award: Tate & Lyle
A plaque from IFT
Tate & Lyle
received the 2012 Food Technology Industrial Achievement Award for its Promitor™ soluble corn fiber to help manufacturers incorporate fiber into everyday food and beverage applications.
The ingredient can replace traditional sweeteners such as liquid and dry corn sweeteners, sucrose, and other sugar alcohols, and its clarity, low viscosity, and process stability allows for its use in clear beverages, sauces, and dressings. In addition to these applications, the ingredient can replace corn syrup in others like yogurt, jams, soups, energy bars, cereals and cereal coatings, confections, and bakery. Promitor is acid stable and is said not to break down in products with a low pH. And because it is a fiber (more specifically, a prebiotic), manufacturers can make a "good" or "excellent" source of fiber claim.
