Also during the show, Univar will unveil its new interactive formulation tool for selecting ingredients. The tool enables customers to search for new ingredients and provides resources on health and wellness, product enhancement and process improvement. From lower sodium and fat, to sugar alternatives and stabilizers for texture enhancement, the searchable tool features dozens of ingredients from well-known suppliers, making it a one-stop-shop for finding new ingredients. The Univar tool enables food developers and manufacturers to compare attributes of dozens of ingredient options in one quick search. It allows suppliers a new and exciting venue to promote current ingredients and launch new ones. Univar technical ingredient specialists will be on hand to showcase the tool and help customers sign up for an exclusive login to develop their own unique products, like the Sweet Cinnsation Cookie and Refreshing and Delicious Almond Milk.
To check out Univar's new formulation tool and to sample the milk and cookies, IFT attendees can stop by booth #316. Univar food specialists will be available to answer questions, demonstrate the formulation tool and offer insight into formulation challenges and solutions.
