Recipes for success from Univar Food Ingredients and key supply partners at Fi Europe 2015

3-Dec-2015

Univar Food Ingredients is the place to go for innovative, inspiring solutions that meet any existing and evolving market requirement

At Fi Europe 2015, Univar Food Ingredients is offering enticing food and drink samples containing innovative and inspiring ingredients on stand 6D9 to show how they can help food developers and manufacturers to respond to the latest consumer taste trends.

With a broad portfolio of specialty products from the world’s leading producers, Univar provides high quality ingredients to satisfy what it regards as six of the most prevalent trends in the food market today: sugar reduction, sodium reduction, gluten-free, clean label, protein enrichment and lactose reduction. Through co-operation with key supply partners Ingredion, Fonterra and Novozymes, Univar will be demonstrating its offering of specialty ingredients that answer the call from consumers for more health-aware products and information transparency, with samples of baked goods and drinks.

Two gluten-free baked goods are being cooked up: a high quality chocolate muffin using PRECISA Bake GF texturising system and HOMECRAFT pulse for an added protein content; and a lemon cake, also containing PRECISA Bake GF. A high-fibre banana and pecan cake featuring HI-MAIZE starch will also be served at the show. These recipes are excellent examples of Culinology, the synthesis of culinary arts and food technology. Culinology translates the latest food trends into workable, appealing recipes for large-scale formulations, and is now available to all of Univar Food Ingredients’ customers.

In the area of sports nutrition and protein enrichment, Univar Food Ingredients will offer two unique, protein-infused drinks to demonstrate the versatile solutions available:

  • a more traditional protein chocolate shake, featuring whey protein concentrate and amino acids to boost the metabolism
  • Univar Colada, which delivers a twist on the well-known cocktail, featuring pineapple, coconut and optional rum. With added whey protein isolate and amino acids, the Univar Colada is an exciting way to demonstrate how extensively protein ingredients can be applied.

Fi Europe 2015 attendees can visit Univar’s team of Food Ingredients experts at stand 6D9, and also earn the chance to win a tablet computer by taking part in a fun 100 m race challenge involving a games console at Univar’s Sports Nutrition demo desk.

At the end of each day, drinks and canapés will be available at the stand for customers, suppliers, and friends of Univar Food Ingredients.
