Tate and Lyle to double production capacity of Maltosweet Maltodextrin in Slovakia
UK-based speciality food ingredients and solutions provider Tate and Lyle is planning to double the production of its non-GMO Maltosweet Maltodextrin product line at its facility in Boleraz, Slovakia.
The Maltosweet Maltodextrin product is a corn-based speciality sweetener made from locally sourced non-GMO dent and waxy corn starch.
Maltodextrin serves as a binder, viscosity provider, fat replacer, and bulking agent. It will be available in both powder and granular formats.
It can be used in food as well as beverage products, including infant formula, dairy desserts, sauces, and sports drinks.
Tate and Lyle Speciality Food Ingredients president Joan Braca said: “Tate and 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, 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 speciality food ingredients solutions offering worldwide.”
The expansion of food grade and infant food grade non-GMO Maltosweet Maltodextrin is expected to be completed by 2019.
The ingredients and solutions provider obtained Non-GMO Project verification for its PromOat Beta Glucan and PrOatein Oat Protein ingredients last month.
The company is set to showcase a wide range of food and beverage products, including sugar and calorie-reduced desserts, fat-reduced soups, fibre-enriched sauces, and new beverages at the Gulfood Manufacturing trade show, being held from 31 October-2 November in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
