Healthier breakfast habits the focus at Food Ingredients Europe
A range of nutritional and functional ingredients that contribute to health and wellness for more people around the world will be a focus at this month’s Food Ingredients Europe (FiE), which takes place at Messe Frankfurt (November 28–30).

DSM (hall 8, stand A61, C62) will have a special spotlight on better breakfasts at home and on-the-go.

In a recent study focused on breakfast habits around the globe, the company found that flavoured yogurt is a popular breakfast option worldwide, but can be high in sugar.

According to its research, more than 60% of global consumers are choosing to reduce the amount of sugar they consume in their dairy products.

To help achieve this, DSM will have an enzyme- and culture-based concept on offer at the show.

Sweetness can be doubled

With Maxilact and DelvoYog, the sweetness that is naturally present in dairy products can be doubled while providing enhanced taste and texture, the company claims.

Visitors to DSM’s stand can see and taste a flavoured yogurt with reduced sugar that maintains an optimal sensory profile.

It’s Fi Innovation Award-nominated cheese culture, DelvoCheese CT Light, designed to improve taste and texture in low fat cheeses is also showcased.

Visitors to DSM’s stand can also learn about

  • Acrylamide-reduced cereals and baked goods
  • Sugar-reduced, better-tasting soy milk
  • Delicious, on-trend Swiss cheese
  • Meal replacement drinks for satiety
  • Soft chews with vitamins for a healthy pregnancy
  • Freeze-dried fruit drops with vitamin premix

Nutrition is an important concept at breakfast, and the meal represents a key opportunity for manufacturers to address consumers’ nutritional requirements.

However, Euromonitor research shows that almost 30% of consumers spend less than five minutes preparing breakfast each day, so need products that are nutritious, but fast.

Custom nutrient premix service

At the show, visitors will be able to collaborate with experts from DSM’s custom nutrient premix service, Fortitech Premixes, to create their own customized formulations for use in their breakfast products.

Using a blend of functional ingredients, these mixes can help to boost nutritional status while also meeting consumer demands for convenient, on-the-go breakfast products, DSM says.

Visitors to the stand will also have the opportunity to see the latest coloration trends for such applications come to life, with a bespoke on-stand wall map revealing the leading hues across categories.

DSM experts will be on hand to demonstrate how the company can help with natural coloration solutions that it claims offer excellent stability and consumer appeal.
