Tate & Lyle’s expands its polydextrose fibre facility in Nantong, China

Tate & Lyle PLC (‘Tate & Lyle’), a leading global provider of speciality food ingredients and solutions, is pleased to announce that the expansion of capacity, and process upgrades, at its STA-LITE® Polydextrose facility in Nantong, Jiangsu Province, China, is now complete and on line.  This expansion increases capacity at the facility in Nantong by more than three times from when it was acquired by Tate & Lyle in 2014.

As part of the expansion, manufacturing and quality processes at the facility have been significantly enhanced. Tate & Lyle has also improved the facility’s packaging capabilities, and implemented advanced environmental management infrastructure and systems to deliver on its commitment for responsible manufacturing.

STA-LITE® Polydextrose is a soluble fibre with proven nutritional benefits that food producers use to provide fibre enrichment, and body and texture, in reduced sugars and calorie products. It is used in products such as cereals, drinking yoghurts, fermented beverages, biscuits and pastries.

Harry Boot, General Manager Asia Pacific, Speciality Food Ingredients at Tate & Lyle, said: “We continue to see strong demand for our soluble fibres, used in food and beverages globally to deliver solutions for sugar reduction and fibre enrichment. The three-fold capacity increase at our polydextrose facility in China will help us meet this growing demand, and provide a high quality product to customers in Asia Pacific and other regions of the world.”

Courtney Kingery, Director, Global Product Management, Health & Wellness at Tate & Lyle, said: “Tate & Lyle is the only polydextrose manufacturer with production lines on three continents. Our investment in Nantong significantly enhances our fibre production capabilities, and expands our non-GMO offering.”

STA-LITE® Polydextrose is one of Tate & Lyle’s range of speciality fibres which includes PROMITOR® Soluble Fibre and PromOat® Beta Glucan.
