Nexira, global leader in natural ingredients for the food, beverage and nutrition industry, contributes to elevate the world of nutrition at the upcoming Food Ingredients Europe 2023. Nexira's commitment to delivering nutritional ingredients while addressing evolving consumer needs is at the heart of their latest offerings
Today's consumers have raised the bar for their food expectations, placing a strong emphasis on taste, texture, and nutrition. Texture is a critical element in enhancing the overall eating experience, with younger generations, such as Generation Z and Millennials, prioritising unique and enjoyable textures.
This importance extends beyond indulgent categories like ice cream, cakes, and creamy beverages to healthier food and beverage options, reflecting evolving dietary preferences.
Consumers are adopting a holistic approach to their diets, seeking nutritious options with higher protein and fibre content while reducing fat and sugar intake, striking a balance between indulgence and well-being.
Nexira's innovative solutions are designed to meet the evolving needs of RD professionals and consumers who demand not only superior taste and texture but also enhanced nutrition.
Nexira's inavea, the organic prebiotic acacia fibre, is a key player in this space. inavea™ offers the value of high digestive tolerance for fibre enrichment and prebiotic effect in a broad scope of applications, from fortified beverages to functional bars or nutritional powders.
Beyond its sustainable commitment, inavea offers a reduced carbon footprint.
Launched at the latest FIE, Nexira's naltive range includes flagship ingredients such as locust bean gum, tara gum, and guar specialties.
Despite the rapid growth of the global plant-based market, 30% to 37% of consumers believe that these alternatives still fall short in terms of texture compared to traditional options, highlighting the need for ongoing innovation in this space.
This year, Nexira is expanding this range with new LBG-based mixes for specific applications: the R&D focus has been made on nutritional recipes and plant-based alternatives.
These new mixes offer solutions to achieve a silk texture from nutritional powders to superfood blends or protein shakes, or a more pleasing mouthfeel in gluten-free baked goods.
