Application centre


The Application Centre has been specifically designed to work with and for customers.
It regroups all competencies and equipment necessary to evaluate new ingredients, identify and develop new application opportunities aligned with consumer demands, and provide the backup required by the Customer Technical Support team.

Tereos Starch & Sweeteners ingredients are tested to optimise sweetening formulations, product functionality and sensory and nutritional profiles. The Application Centre boosts the capabilities of the company and its customers to develop creative solutions for formulating products in line with consumer's expectations, such as proteins and fibre enriched foodstuffs.

Development, performed in partnership with customers, can start from a reference ‘text book recipe’ or from a tailor-made application programme as part of development protocols that are subjected to the strictest degree of confidentiality.
