Posted: November 13, 2007

This year’s Food Ingredients Europe (FIE) was staged at the Excel Exhibition Centre in London’s Docklands. More than 20,000 food industry professionals attended the three-day event, visiting more than 1,000 exhibitors from 100 countries. Attendees were treated to two exhibitions as Natural Ingredients ran alongside as a co-located event. This event is becoming a global highlight as exhibitors and visitors were in attendance from all over the world.

Here are some highlights from the two shows:

Treatt plc was showcasing two new flavor ingredients of African origin: Tamarind Treattarome 9860 and Rooibos Treattarome 9762. Additional highlights included Eartharome products, derived from the organic named food, and the Eartholate range of organic essential oils. These ingredients enable flavorists to create a variety of flavor blends for 100% organic products.

Synergy reinforced its vanilla offering with the unveiling of a combined Synergy/Vanlab (acquired in January 2007) brand. The new approach brings together Vanlab’s traditional vanilla artistry with Synergy’s own industry-leading technologies.

Cargill announced that it has developed a natural cream flavor that replicates the authentic taste and quality of fresh cream while also providing customers with significant cost savings. The natural cream flavor stems from Cargill’s competencies in fermentation and enzymolysis. The company claims it can replace heavy cream without compromising the characteristic taste, mouthfeel or functionality of dairy ingredients.
