Ingredion Incorporated operates as a manufacturer and supplier of starch and sweetener ingredients. The company supplies a range of customers in approximately 60 industries worldwide, including the food, beverage, brewing, pharmaceutical, paper and corrugated products, textile and personal care industries, as well as the global animal feed and corn oil markets. Its product line includes starches and sweeteners, animal feed products, and edible corn oil. The company’s products are derived primarily from the processing of corn and other starch-based materials, such as tapioca, potato, and rice. Products Sweetener Products The company’s sweetener products include glucose syrups, high maltose syrups, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), caramel color, dextrose, polyols, maltodextrins, and glucose and syrup solids. Glucose Syrups: Glucose syrups are fundamental ingredients used in food products, such as baked goods, snack foods, beverages, canned fruits, condiments, candy and other sweets, dairy products, ice cream, jams and jellies, prepared mixes, and table syrups. Glucose syrups offer functionality in addition to sweetness to processed foods. They add body and viscosity; help control freezing points, crystallization and browning; add humectancy (ability to add moisture) and flavor; and act as binders. High Maltose Syrup: This special type of glucose syrup is primarily used as a fermentable sugar in brewing beers. High maltose syrups are also used in the production of confections, canning, and various other food processing applications. The company’s high maltose syrups speed the fermentation process, allowing brewers to increase capacity without adding capital. HFCS: HFCS is used in various consumer products, including soft drinks, fruit-flavored beverages, baked goods, dairy products, confections, and other food and beverage products. Dextrose: Dextrose has a range of applications in the food and confection industries, in solutions for intravenous and other pharmaceutical applications, and various industrial applications, such as wallboard, biodegradable surface agents, and moisture control agents. Dextrose functionality in foods, beverages, and confectionary includes sweetness control; body and viscosity; acts as a bulking, drying, and anti-caking agent; serves as a carrier; provides freezing point and crystallization control; and aids in fermentation. Dextrose is also a fermentation agent in the production of light beer. In pharmaceutical applications dextrose is used in IV solutions, as well as an excipient suitable for direct compression in tableting. Polyols: These products are sugar-free, reduced calorie sweeteners primarily derived from starch or sugar for the food, beverage, confectionery, industrial, personal and oral care, and nutritional supplement markets. In addition to sweetness, polyols inhibit crystallization; provide binding, humectancy and plasticity; add texture; extend shelf life; prevent moisture migration; and are an excipient suitable for tableting. Maltodextrins and Glucose Syrup Solids: These products have a multitude of food applications, including formulations where liquid syrups cannot be used. Maltodextrins are resistant to browning, provide solubility, have a low hydroscopicity (do not retain moisture), and are used for their carrier/bulking properties. Starch Products The company’s starch-based products include both food-grade and industrial starches. Starches are a major component in a range of processed foods, where they are used for adhesion, clouding, dusting, expansion, fat replacement, freshness, gelling, glazing, mouth feel, stabilization, and texture. Cornstarch is sold to cornstarch packers for sale to consumers. Starches are also used in paper production to create a smooth surface for printed communications and to improve strength in recycled papers. Specialty starches are used for improved drainage, fiber retention, oil and grease resistance, improved printability, and biochemical oxygen demand control. In the corrugating industry, starches and specialty starches are used to produce adhesives for the production of shipping containers, display boar
