How we help our ingredients clients

Canadean’s Ingredients team has developed unique tools to support strategic planning and NPD functions by tracking innovation constraints and opportunities, with a focus on market trends for functional ingredients.

The proprietary benchmarking system for functional ingredients provides our clients with a strategic knowledge and insight tool for innovation and business development. Analyzing consumer product consumption together with Canadean’s proprietary de-formulation models provides insight into actual consumption trends across all types of food grade ingredients.

Typical client questions and challenges that we address:

  • How do omega fat ingredients differ in composition and health benefit?

  • What is the level of the glucuronolactose or anthocyanin consumption within the Soft Drinks categories?
  • What is the current consumption of Carotenes, Riboflavin, Sunset Yellow or Tartrazine in the soft drinks industry?

Our solutions include:

  • Ingredient profiles by manufacturer
  • Benchmarking of ingredients by technology and commercial parameters
  • Identifying diverse ingredients offering similar consumer benefits
