Clean-label Ingredients for Foods and Drinks That Look and Taste Great


Consumer behavior plays a critical role in the food industry today. One clear trend is the heightened scrutiny of food and beverage labels. Whether your target consumers are vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian, or simply health-conscious, product labels, of course, need to be clear and not misleading. More than that, they need to have an ingredient declaration that doesn't deter a consumer from making a purchase.

Consumers are interested in incorporating more plant-based foods into their diets but are unwilling to compromise on taste and texture. They want to see recognisable ingredients on the ingredient declaration and not a confusing list of chemical-sounding names. According to FMCG Gurus consumer research conducted in 2023, "two-thirds of consumers said they are concerned about hidden ingredients in food and drink disguised via complex labeling."

Whether working on the development of a plant-based formulation or re-formulating an existing product to reduce sugar, fat, or salt, food scientists and technologists must meticulously select functional ingredients that perform whilst delivering on the requirement for a clean label.

Striking a balance between achieving these goals and maintaining taste and texture is not easy. This is where carefully chosen food ingredients and food additives can become your secret weapon.

In this NewProtein special focus, you will find a round-up of some of the latest clean-label food ingredient solutions, including GNT's innovative EXBERRY® carrot concentrate that allows clean-label red meat alternatives to change color during the cooking process.

Lallemand Bio-Ingredients Savory's new solutions for savory applications, Whole-Lyfe® 950, and new to the Engevita® range, Garlic-Parmesan-Style Powder, are featured.

Ingood by Olga offers a range of nutri-functional ingredients, including Peptipea® pea protein hydrolysate, Sojyfib® soy fibers, and Peakara®, a complete source of essential amino acids from pea protein.

Suitable for use in a wide range of applications, Egg'n'Up egg replacers bind, gel, foam, emulsify, texturize, and thicken while delivering taste, texture, mouthfeel, and nutritional profile.

Ingredion's NOVATION® Indulge 2940 starch is a non-GMO functional native corn starch suitable for the gelling and co-texturizing of dairy and alternative dairy products and desserts.

Ideal for application in plant-based meat, Novozymes Vertera® ProBite delivers a succulent and juicy texture and has the unique advantage of requiring no labeling.

A study has found that BioVeritas clean label mold inhibitor is an effective alternative to calcium propionate in bread and does not alter the flavor profile of the finished product.

Manufacturers of plant-based meat will be interested in Meala’s proprietary platform which creates functional proteins designed to replace methylcellulose as binding and gelling agents thanks to their superior water retention capabilities.

The ROVITARIS® Binding Solution powered by Rubi Protein™ is a clean-label, highly functional replacement for chemically derived binders such as methylcellulose.
