Infant formulae, dry and liquid
At Tate & Lyle, we understand that no consumer is more fragile than an infant.
Our investment in quality management systems, our people and patented technology ensures we achieve the highest possible quality standards for our MALTOSWEET™ range, suitable for infant and follow-up formulae.
Infant formulae are carefully balanced to meet the specific dietary needs of babies. Maltodextrins are an ideal carbohydrate source for use in modified milks and other infant foods.
MALTOSWEET™ provides easily assimilated energy, a neutral clean taste, low sweetness, control of osmotic pressure, high purity and well controlled mineral content, good solubility even at low temperatures, low hygroscopicity and better dispersion in dry mixes. It is safe to be applied in both liquid and dry infant food applications.
It is offered in powder and granular (agglomerated) forms, and with a DE value ranging from 6DE to 30DE.
For clinical foods, the delivery of a highly purified carbohydrate source is a key factor. MALTOSWEET™ can be selected for a variety of dietetic and enteral foods, based on the most appropriate osmolality for energy enrichment.
In dry mix beverages, MALTOSWEET™ is highly stable to mechanical damage during mixing. It reduces the formation of dust during production and its high dispersability ensures the powdered beverage dissolves quickly when added to water or milk.
For athletes and energy drink formulators, MALTOSWEET™ Maltodextrins are the superior solution, providing the ideal balance of carbohydrate profile and osmolality.
