Sneak Peek: Redefining Functional Beverages and Frappes with VitalBlend™ Oat 2540

Across the globe, health and well-being are in the everyday choices individuals make. But as they juggle work, family, physical exercise, and social life, consumers crave convenient, high-quality solutions that fit their busy schedules. On-the-go, tasty, refreshing, functional drinks have become a hot topic in recent years, with the US market projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.90% from 2024 to 2029.[1] 

To help brands tap into consumer needs for solutions that not only quench thirst but also provide multiple health benefits, at IFT First, we will reveal our new VitalBlend™ Oat 2540. This first-of-a-kind creamer offers outstanding cold-water solubility, a smooth texture, and a creamy mouthfeel, making it ideal for various applications.

Visitors to booth 4048 are invited to sample delicious Frappuccino concepts set to become the consumer favorite.

Live Demonstration

Attendees at the show can learn more about our expertise in formulating next-generation beverage solutions during the talk Enhancing Solubility: Innovative Cold-Water Solutions for Product Development hosted by Angela Yin [Account Manager – Balchem Human Nutrition and Health], and Tammy Thompson [Associate Scientist – Balchem Human Nutrition and Health] on Monday, Jul. 15, 11-11:15 a.m. at the Exhibit Hall – Taste of Science (Booth 5212).

Elevating Everyday Nutrition

In 2023, protein stood out as the most sought-after nutrient among US consumers, with around 67% of them prioritizing its intake.[2] However, with 33% of global users being concerned about the texture of high-protein snacks,[3] mastering the art of taste and mouthfeel is key.

  • We aim to address this concern with Z-Crisps®, extruded collagen crisps developed to elevate the formulation of multifunctional high-protein bars by combining the textural benefit of crispiness with added skin health benefits.
  • Plus, we will also present MeatShure®, encapsulated acids and salt that increase production capacity and minimize protein extraction.
  • For brands seeking new co-development opportunities, our team will be on hand to discuss how to incorporate protein into beverages using Injoy™ Beverage Systems, designed to help manufacturers overcome formulation challenges, improve taste, mouthfeel, and more.

People are leading increasingly busy lives while also taking a more proactive approach to their health, driving demand for convenient and nutritious products. But creating foods and beverages that tick all the boxes is easier said than done. With our expertise and cutting-edge technology, we support our customers every step of the way – from ideation through commercialization. As a complete ingredient system supplier, we’re able to meet specific development needs with maximum flexibility, collaborating with our clients to craft tailored solutions while ensuring a reliable supply chain.
