Ingredient Development

Do you need help to discover the potential applications for your novel and new ingredient or to take an existing ingredient into new markets? We can help you to understand the functionality of your ingredient in a wide range of food products, generate shelf-life and stability data and develop concepts for presentation to customers.

Ingredient Development Support for the Food Industry

Our specialist team and food testing laboratory has many years’ experience in ingredient innovation and development (as part of our NPD consultancy), and broad ingredient knowledge covering a wide range of product sectors, from bakery and confectionery to sauces, dressings and more.

Our extensive in-house knowledge base means we can assess your new and novel ingredients, analyse their composition for maximum understanding of their behaviour, optimise them for improved performance, and evaluate how they perform in a range of matrices. Our industry experience enables us to provide additional NPD consultancy and advice regarding appropriate market application for particular ingredients. 

We ensure that your novel ingredients can be effectively incorporated into products through thorough ingredient testing – including stability and shelf-life testing – and extensive technical experience. We also have extensive knowledge of functional ingredients, supplements and over-the-counter pharmaceuticals, providing invaluable support if this is an area of interest.

Right from concept ideation through to ingredient and formulation optimisation and onwards, we work with you throughout the entire food product development cycle from new food product development (as part of our NPD consultancy) right through to finished product. Your dedicated project manager will keep you informed, and regular review meetings ensure you stay in touch with your project at all times.
