The company has identified three key formulation opportunities in mouthfeel: 

  • Enhancing profitability while still focusing on mouthfeel
  • Reformulating to make products clean-label
  • Supporting customers to create novel texture experiences

The Senior Vice President of Texturants and Proteins at Tate & Lyle, John Stewart said:  “Getting mouthfeel right in a formulation can be a challenge. Often there is a lack of insight about the preferences of consumer groups. We are focused on gathering these consumer insights and connecting them to our mouthfeel solutions, making our customers’ formulation process quicker and more accurate.” 

The Tate & Lyle Sensation tool is currently launched in the North American market, with a roll-out planned for additional markets this year.
