Cargill Products Match Market Trends at SupplySide East

MINNEAPOLIS - Cargill will demonstrate how its ingredients help food manufacturers capitalize on key market trends during the upcoming SupplySide East International Trade Show and Conference that will be held May 5-7, 2004 at the Baltimore Convention Center in booth #1423.

Cargill will showcase food product concepts such as OptaFlex™ chondroitin sports gel dietary supplement, a tasty chai tea with AdvantaSoy™ isoflavones and WilburÒ chocolate with CoroWise™ plant sterols. Cargill also will showcase Pharm DC™ 93000 excipient for the dietary supplement industry – a directly compressible starch that offers tablet manufacturers strong binding capacity combined with fast tablet disintegration. This product offers manufacturers faster tableting speeds, high compressibility and excellent flowability.

Cargill will demonstrate a range of solutions for lower carbohydrate product applications such as:

New Frontiers™ Sugar Free Chocolate Coatings that uses a blend of Eridex™ erythritol and Oliggo-Fiber® inulin to create a wonderful carbohydrate friendly treat.

Oliggo-Fiber® inulin that is a source of natural dietary fiber and may boost calcium absorption.

Eridex™ erythritol, a natural bulk sweetener, is ideal for the carbohydrate-counting customer because it is all natural, contains virtually no calories, has virtually no glycemic response, has better digestive tolerance than other sugar alcohols and has the same taste profile as sugar.

Ascend™ trehalose is a unique sugar made from cornstarch that enhances great tasting protein beverages by stabilizing proteins and enhancing flavors.

Heart health is another key health trend that will be featured in products at the Cargill booth. Cargill’s CoroWise™ plant sterols have been formulated into a number of new consumer product launches. CoroWise™ plant sterols have been clinically proven to lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease when part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.

"This is a dynamic time for Cargill and our customers. The functional food category is changing rapidly, and we are at the forefront of this new frontier," said Bob Parmelee, president, Cargill Food System Design. "We are excited to share the health-promoting, formulation and taste benefits of multiple Cargill’ ingredients at SupplySide East."
