Tate & Lyle has announced the launch of the Tate & Lyle nutrition centre, a new digital hub providing easy access to authoritative science on ingredients that can help address public health challenges.
The food and beverage ingredient supplier aims to increase awareness of evidence-based science for ingredients including low- and no-calorie sweeteners and dietary fibres, and their role in a healthy, balanced diet.
The centre will offer expert insights, research and educational tools for food and beverage companies, scientists, and health professionals.
Visitors can access pre-clinical and clinical research conducted or supported by the group's scientists, which are often carried out with leading universities worldwide, providing key scientific evidence about ingredients used and their impact on our overall health.
Also included will be white papers, articles, and events on a range of nutrition topics such as glycemic response and synbiotics, the science around how ingredients relate to health, and diet trends such as sports nutrition and keto and low-carb diets.
Tate & Lyle's global nutrition team developed the nutrition centre, which drives the company's science research programme and supports food and beverage companies from its bases in the UK, US, Brazil, and Singapore.
'High-Quality Research Content'
Dr Kavita Karnik, global head, nutrition and regulatory affairs at Tate & Lyle, said, "With global obesity and diabetes rates rising, there is a great deal of interest from industry, governments, and the health and science communities in food and beverage ingredients with proven health benefits, such as weight management and gut health."
Karnik added that the new centre would make it "easier for our customers and the wider industry, as well as peers in the nutrition and science world, to access high-quality research content that informs product development, adds to the evidence base, and supports healthy living."
