The provider of food and beverage ingredients and solutions announced the creation of a new digital hub that provides access to authoritative science on ingredients that can help address public health challenges. The Tate & Lyle Nutrition Center will house expert insights, research, and educational tools for food and beverage companies, scientists, and health professionals.
Visitors to the new nutrition center can access pre-clinical and clinical research conducted or supported by Tate & Lyle scientists that provides scientific evidence about ingredients and their impact on gut health, blood glucose management, metabolism, gut microbiome, weight management, bone health, and overall health. Moreover, visitors can read white papers and articles, as well as attend events on a range of nutrition topics such as glycemic response, the science around how ingredients relate to health, and diet trends such as sports nutrition, and keto, and low-carb diets. Those accessing the digital hub have at their disposal external research, nutrition guidelines, and advice, initiatives, and developments published by global authorities regarding nutrition and health such as the World Health Organization.
The Nutrition Centre was developed by Tate & Lyle’s Global Nutrition Team which drives the Company’s science research program and supports food and beverage companies from its bases in the UK, US, Brazil, and Singapore.
Global Head, Nutrition & Regulatory Affairs at Tate & Lyle, Dr. Kavita Karnik, 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. Scientific knowledge around ingredients continues to grow, with exciting emerging research pointing to additional health benefits, such as the role some fibers can play supporting immune system function and metabolic health.” Karnik added: “With our new digital Nutrition Centre, we have made 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-based, and supports healthy living.”
