We offer a vast range of plant-based ingredients, including carbohydrates, proteins and fibres, to make food and drink taste better, last longer, and be more sustainable and nutritious.

THE MOST COMMON CARBOHYDRATE

Starch is a natural carbohydrate found in many grains and vegetables. It is the most common carbohydrate in the human diet and is an essential source of energy for our brains and muscle.

PLANT-BASED PROTEINS

A mix of protein sources are increasingly valued in food preparations. Our plant-based proteins offer innovative EU-grown solutions to better accommodate changing dietary habits, making our industry a key contributor helping Europe move towards a more sustainable food system.

STARCHES & DERIVATIVES

From native starches to modified starches to maltodextrins and starch based sugars to polyols, all starch based ingredients have unique properties which help make final food and drink products taste better and last longer.

FIBRES

The many innovative fibres we produce enable our customers to deliver more nutritious food products, and helps consumers towards healthier diets
