We are currently working with a global food and beverage company, who is looking for a bulk filler to replace sugar and fat within their food product portfolio.
This brief is seeking raw materials, ingredients or technologies that can reduce the ‘added sugar or fat’ content. Of primary interest are solutions that can:
- Replace the bulk function provided by sugar and/or fat
- Retain the structural properties of reduced fat and sugar products
Suitable solutions must be able to be further processed into food and drink applications.
Ingredients pending regulatory approval; Novel, GRAS etc. will be considered, but clear guidelines on estimated approval times must be given.
Ingredients not currently in use in food and beverage applications, but with potential for new category exploitation will be considered.
Ingredients and Technologies at Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 7+ will be prioritised. However, those that can achieve TRL 9 within a 5 year horizon will be considered.
All solutions must be submitted to Technology Scout (ACTION@auroraceres.co.uk), with a subject line ACTION ref: F16/347/2 detailing:
- A summary of the ingredient or technology
- Commercial availability
- Suitability for food and drink application
- Contact details
