Ingredients for baby food – nutritional quality and improved texture.

In the early stages of life, high quality and safe nutrition are essential for babies development and long-term health. Whether in targeted powdered formula’s, infant cereals, ready-made meals or teas, our functional ingredients can bring improved texture, stability and nutritional benefits to infant foods.

Taking care of our youngest generation requires special attention which both the food industry and parents hold close to heart. With a segment that nurtures this young generation from infant to toddlers milk, one can never be too careful about quality grades. No surprise that over 70% of parents worldwide checks the on pack nutritional information of their toddlers milk; and yet a similar portion of American parents believes their under-two-year old gets everything it needs from the shop-bought formula. On top of being extra careful about what’s “in- or excluded”, parents are drawn to the additional health benefits their youngsters can gain. Soft claims towards digestive health are especially surfacing across the borders; e.g. “Little tummies – happy tummies – tummy friendly”.
