Tate & Lyle, a leading global provider of food and beverage ingredients and solutions, invites Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) FIRST attendees to experience its full suite of ingredients and solutions by visiting the Interactive Kitchen experience located at booth #S-0600.

Modeled after the Tate & Lyle “Collaborate at Home Kitchen,” IFT attendees will experience the Interactive Kitchen from the perspective of consumers—who can open any fridge or cupboard and find products containing Tate & Lyle ingredients and solutions. Tate & Lyle collaborates with customers to meet these changing consumer demands with science-led solutions and expertise that delivers on both taste and nutrition across food and beverage categories.

“We are thrilled to be back at IFT live and in person,” said Jessica Wilford, Head of Category Development and Planning, NOAM. “We will have experts on hand in every category—beverages, dairy, soups, sauces, dressings, bakery and nutrition—so that visitors to our booth can discuss in depth how partnering with Tate & Lyle creates innovative solutions to meet consumer needs for tastier and healthier food.”

Plant-based Ingredients
Tate & Lyle’s recent acquisition of the Artesa® Chickpea Flour and Artesa® Chickpea Protein, both highly functional ingredients, offer a superior, premium taste and mouthfeel experience. “Our Artesa  Chickpea Flour is an extremely versatile ingredient,” said Michael Spinelli, Tate & Lyle Director, Research & Development Proteins. “Artesa® Chickpea Protein ingredients fulfill top consumer trends for plant-based formulations across food and drink, and in nutrition fortification, making it one of our most exciting solutions.”
