Ingredion to demonstrate sugar reduction and affordability solutions at Djazagro 2024

Published: 18-Apr-2024

The company will exhibit its reduced-sugar prototypes, as well as its currently available products

Ingredion has announced its experts will be on hand at the Djazagro exhibition to demonstrate how its ingredient solutions can help food and beverage manufacturers in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region address key challenges like sugar reduction and affordability.

The company will showcase its latest innovations at the event, which takes place between the 22nd and 25th April, 2024, at SAFEX Palais des Expositions in Algiers, Algeria.

Algeria, one of the world's largest importers of sugar, faces unique challenges in balancing consumer preferences with health concerns and economic pressures. The country's 9% value-added tax on white and raw sugar, aimed at tackling health issues and reducing import spending, has impacted food and beverage manufacturers who may lack the expertise to produce sugar-reduced products.

To address sugar reduction and affordability concerns, Ingredion's team of experts will be on hand at Djazagro to discuss how its wide range of tailored ingredient solutions can help customers navigate this challenge without compromising taste and texture. 


What's available?

Visitors to Ingredion's stand can sample a variety of recipe prototypes inspired by evolving consumer trends in health and wellness, such as reduced sugar, clean label and plant-based diets.

These prototypes include multiple sugar-reduced drinks which utilise PureCircle by Ingredion's portfolio of stevia-based sweeteners. These drinks include an orange and pomegranate juice drink, a lemonade and malt carbonated drink, and a Ramadan meal replacement drink incorporating plant-based proteins.

Ingredion will also showcase other delicious products including Madeleine cupcakes using proprietary texture and sweetener solutions, as well as a brownie, a chocolate-filled muffin, and non-fruit strawberry fillings that address water activity and stability challenges.
