Ulrick & Short Take Aim At The Beverage Sector

New Clean Label Ingredient Set to Bring Indulgence to Beverages

Between 2014-18, the dairy beverage sector grew year on year by 10.5%. Growing further still are plant-based beverages, with the sector meeting health, ethical and sustainability standards that consumers have come to expect. Moreover, as consumers increasingly make purchases based on health considerations, premium & high-value products with nutritional profile enhancement are driving NPD in the sector.

In response to this, Ulrick & Short have developed a clean label ingredient aimed at improving indulgence in beverages, while also reducing overall fat and calorie content. Designed for dairy & plant-based beverages such as breakfast drinks, milkshakes, sports nutrition products, and meal replacements, delyteTM 12 provides an indulgent mouthfeel to products by assisting with viscosity & structure.

delyteTM 12 is the latest addition to the company’s fat reduction range, it replaces the functional properties of fat concerning body, texture & mouthfeel. Additionally, unlike similar ingredients, delyteTM 12 does not mask any flavours or impact flavour profiles of the finished product. The ingredient is also clean label, non-GM, allergen-free, and vegan, ensuring it is suitable for all applications and has a consumer-friendly declaration.

R&D Manager, Danni Schroeter, said “The beverage market is really interesting at the moment. It is currently experiencing considerable innovation with meal replacements, dairy, and plant-based premium products. Consumers are becoming increasingly demanding insofar that they are wanting an indulgent product, but also one which is healthier – either by the addition of functional ingredients like proteins and fibres or by reduction of fat & sugars.”

 

...delyteTM 12 provides a great way for manufacturers to improve the indulgence of their products, while also being able to reformulate to make these health claims consumers are demanding.

Schroeter added “We’ve seen growth in gut health claims, high-protein claims, breakfast smoothies, free from claims & “better-for-you” formulations. With this shift, delyteTM 12 provides a great way for manufacturers to improve the indulgence of their products, while also being able to reformulate to make these health claims consumers are demanding.”
