Roquette America, Geneva, Ill., will promote its microalgae-based food ingredients at the IFT Annual Meeting & Food Expo 2013, July 13-16, in Chicago.

Since 2008, Roquette has positioned itself as a leader in microalgae-based food ingredients, including its role as the program leader of Algohub, a 14-member French consortium devoted to the research and development of the potential of microalgae in the nutrition and health sector. The company says it is approaching IFT as an opportunity to present its years of development, leadership and expertise in microalgae for food and beverage applications.

At the tradeshow, Roquette will showcase two new ingredients: a high-lipid and a high-protein microalgae-based ingredient, both of which are natural-origin, whole ingredients that improve nutrition and texture in many applications, the company says. The protein product is suitable for dietary supplement applications, it adds.

These ingredients are supported by Roquette’s high-capacity manufacturing facilities and by its support infrastructure, which includes product development facilities around the world, such as its Customer Innovation Center in Geneva, Ill., which offers formulation knowledge and partnership in application development.

“Our partners at all stages of the product development process can depend on our seasoned sales force and commercialization group to guide them in the development of applications with Roquette’s microalgae-based ingredients,” said Fernando Arias, commercial vice president of Roquette America, in a statement.

Dominique Taret, chief executive officer and president of Roquette America, added: “Thanks to our dedication to plant-based raw materials and our global ingredients foresight, we’re ready and very excited to introduce partners and consumers to microalgae-based applications combining incredible nutritional benefits and amazing sensorial properties.”
