Costa Rica: Forum on Food Ingredients

On November 25 domestic and foreign experts will be gathering together in San Jose to discuss the transformation and innovation of ingredients in the face of new food trends.

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

From a statement from the Costa Rican Chamber of the Food Industry (CACIA):

Ingredient suppliers have endeavored to present developments that meet new nutritional trends, in order to create products with different nutritional characteristics, according to the needs of consumers. For example, foods made from traditional nutrients have always existed, however, the ingredients industry shows a highly developed range of options for innovation in markets for products with reduced sugar, fat and sodium.

Monica Elizondo, Director of Scientific and Regulatory Affairs at the CACIA said "... We can find among the products on offer, natural processed foods, organic foods, probiotics or prebiotics, also a variety of reduced-calorie products which for their production requires a large investment in research and development of ingredients that cover these new needs while at the same time providing equally tasty and nutritious food.
