Cargill prototypes feature themes of childhood nutrition and sustainability at IFT

By Cargill

Focused on solutions for a healthier future, visitors to Cargill's booth at the 2013 Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Food Expo in July in Chicago, learned more about how the company's solutions and technical expertise can enable more nutritious kid-friendly foods and beverages and more sustainable supply chains.

With a holistic approach in applying its broad ingredient portfolio and formulation expertise, Cargill food scientists have developed great tasting kid-friendly foods and beverages that contain less sodium, sugar and fat, and more whole grains, fiber and protein in accordance with specific childhood nutrition standards. Many of the prototypes may also allow for claims that are important to parents as they make food and beverage choices for their kids:
