About Ingredion

Ingredion is an ingredients solution company that makes sweeteners, starches, nutrition ingredients, and biomaterials that are used in other products like food, beverages, paper, pharmaceuticals, and more. The company came into its current form in 2014, but stands on a 100-year foundation of innovations in ingredient science. One of the earliest innovations in ingredient science still used today by Ingredion was in 1906. The Corn Products Refining company was founded and began producing starches for multiple uses. By the 21st century, the company was creating beauty products, snack foods, and alternative sweeteners. After entering an agreement with Alliance Grain Traders in 2014, Ingredion was officially born, with years of invention and discovery behind and ahead of it.

Ingredion takes raw materials like grains, fruits, vegetables, and other plant materials and turns them into ingredients that make other products what they are. Ingredion’s work is integral to the production of lots of products consumers all over the world use every day. The company is made up of 11,000 employees and operates worldwide. It serves 120 countries and provides products in 60 sectors from food and beverage to paper and corrugating. Ingredion is home to 13 ingredient families, including PureCircle stevia solutions, Purity Pea Starch, Homecraft Pulse Flowers, and more.

In order to advance in the field of ingredient science, Ingredion established the Catalyst program. It provides “a holistic solution, involving an ecosystem of co-creation partners who work together to speed the development of more successful products.” Catalyst lives up to Ingredion’s mission to create products that will provide a necessary function for other incredibly important products to be their best. Ingredion works to innovate and advance the products that consumers may not realize are critical to daily life.
