Supplier Innovations How cocoa, chocolate fit into three trends A recent "T for Trends" webinar presented by Cargill's cocoa and chocolate business looked at ways that cocoa and chocolate may play roles in three trends that Innova Market Insights foresees growing in 2015. For "From Clean to Clear Label," Minneapolis-based Cargill may provide nonbioengineered/non-G.M.O. options or sunflower lecithin formulations for cocoa and chocolate products. In certain markets Cargill is able to provide coatings and fillings using segregated or mass balance palm oil certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil. For "Good Fats, Good Carbs," Truvia sweeteners from Cargill may be used to reduce sugar in chocolate or fillings. For "More in Store for Protein," chocolate ranked as the top flavor for ready-to-drink protein beverages globally in 201314, according to Cargill. "Through our unique T-model approach, we combine broad food knowledge with deep cocoa and chocolate expertise and apply the latest trends to the development of our ingredients," said Brigitte Bayart, senior marketing manager, chocolate, Cargill. "This in turn provides our customers with the knowledge and ingredients they need to create products to meet their consumers' demands and stand out from the crowd."
