As consumers are increasingly seeking healthy options while embracing more on-the-go lifestyles, food and beverage manufacturers need to adapt and continuously innovate to meet these new requirements.
Epi Ingredients has been working on several solutions designed with the end-consumer in mind, to help the manufacturers keep up with the trend and offer portable snack options that are both healthy and indulgent. For example:
– The company recently launched SoFlexi, a powdered mix coming in individual pouches, that allows consumers to create a variety of fresh yogurt-tasting snacks at their convenience. With this highly versatile finished product concept, the goal for Epi Ingredients is to showcase the unique characteristics of EPILAC Lowfat Yogurt Powder 48 and more broadly to drive innovation, helping their customers visualize what they can do with the range of ingredients offered such as Epilac premium fermented powders.
– With their new state-of-the-art drying tower, expected to be fully operational by the end of the year, the company will be able to apply extremely strict manufacturing standards that will help reduce spores in their ingredients to the very minimum. UHT beverage manufacturers can then use ingredients such as their new low-spore skim milk powder in ready-to-drink beverage formulations knowing that the resulting product will be perfectly clean and stable with no risk of further contamination by spores’ development, which is one of their recurring challenges.
Besides these two solutions targeting the snack market, the company offers a broad spectrum of premium ingredients intended for applications ranging from infant nutrition formula and customized fortified powdered milks for specialized adult nutrition to confectionery, ice cream, sauces and more.
