TIC Gums will use Engredea 2018 to introduce its Simplistica line. Simplistica ingredient systems include optimized solutions from TIC Gums and Ingredion—including hydrocolloids, starches, plant proteins, sweeteners and more. 

TIC Gums will debut two prototypes that use Simplistica systems: a gluten-free snickerdoodle cookie and a vegan, coconut-based yogurt. Samples of the cookies made with Simplistica BK 6202, and the yogurt made with Simplistica YG 3206, will be available to try at the TIC Gums’ Booth #3790.

With Simplistica ingredient systems from TIC Gums, food and beverage developers can better align their formulation and label claim goals with the attributes of the ingredients they use. Simplistica systems also make it possible for food developers to make use of the legendary customer service from TIC Gums in a more comprehensive way. 

With these ingredient systems, developers are able to provide a nutritionally and texturally sound product using ingredients that have been selected by the Gum Gurus® at TIC Gums for product optimization.

Simplistica BK 6202: Snickerdoodle Cookie

Simplistica BK 6202 is a new ingredient system from TIC Gums that uses hydrocolloids and pea protein concentrate to optimize the formulation of cookies and other baked goods that carry enhanced label claims.

With health and wellness trends continuing on the forefront of the food and beverage industry, TIC Gums developed a reduced sugar, gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free snickerdoodle cookie that has four times the amount of protein compared to a traditional cookie to highlight the benefits of using a blend of proteins and hydrocolloids.

This system is a solution to the challenges associated with cleaning up labels, especially in a traditionally indulgent food category. When using Simplistica BK 6202, the Gum Gurus are able to examine a formulation from a more holistic stand-point and make suggestions about usage levels and other factors, ultimately contributing to a product that aligns with the needs of developers.

Simplistica YG 3206: Vegan Yogurt

Simplistica YG 3206 is a new ingredient system from TIC Gums that leverages faba bean and stabilizers to optimize vegan yogurt fortified with protein.

To showcase the functionality of Simplistica YG 3206 in vegan yogurt formulations, TIC Gums has developed a coconut milk yogurt prototype which will be available at Engredea. This coconut-based yogurt delivers 5g of protein in an application that typically fails to make any protein claims. Simplistica YG 3206 from TIC Gums addresses the common challenges to working with vegan formulations, from maintaining protein levels in line with dairy counterparts to protecting texture and taste. 

Technical papers for Simplistica YG 3206 and Simplistica BK 6202 will be available at booth #3790 along with exclusive product demonstrations.
