Ingredion to showcase on-trend inspired prototypes at Gulfood Manufacturing in Dubai (Stand: S3-C2)

Ingredion, Incorporated (NYSE: INGR) – a leading global provider of ingredient solutions to the food manufacturing industry – will showcase the latest consumer trends and ingredient innovations in six delicious recipe prototypes at this year’s Gulfood Manufacturing. 

The innovative concepts are designed to show food and drink manufacturers how they can develop and formulate affordable products with the ingredients and claims that consumers prefer.

Taking place from the 7-9 November at the Dubai World Trade Centre, Gulfood Manufacturing is the Middle East's biggest annual food & beverage processing forum. Ingredion’s Senior Culinologist will be on stand at the event to freshly prepare dishes that tackle industry challenges including affordability, reducing sugar, and enriching products with plant protein. 

Formulated with a variety of Ingredion’s textured pulse proteins, food systems solutions, flavour modifiers, erythritol sweeteners, and more, Ingredion’s menu at the event will feature a crispy-coated plant-based nugget, an affordable nacho cheese dip, and a no-added-sugar still lemonade. Technical experts will also be on hand to discuss visitors’ formulation and production challenges. 

Tapping into the Middle East and Africa’s high-growth F&B market 

“The Middle East and African food & beverage sector is predicted to achieve between six and seven per cent annual growth between 2020 and 2022,” noted Firas Abu Irshaid, Sales Manager - Middle East, Ingredion. “Coupled with consumers’ willingness to try out new trends such as reduced-sugar and plant-based, this presents an opportunity for food & beverage manufacturers to tap into this developing market,” he advised. 

“Our team of experts will be on hand able to guide visitors through the latest consumer insights and their own individual reformulation challenges, looking at the latest ingredient innovations can help to optimise costs without sacrificing taste, texture, nutritional appeal and functionality,” Mr Irshaid continued. “The recipes and demo kits available to taste on stand will demonstrate how they can deliver exactly that.”
