At the heart of the sustainable supply chain of the Limagrain cooperative group, Snack by Limagrain C�r�ales Ingr�dients supplies raw cereal material and creates cereal ingredients for professionals in the snack industry. Limagrain is launching a whole range of toasted ingredients for use in snacks. One of the products in the range is an aromatic and tasty ingredient called Nutricorn, which is made from toasted corn germ. Using between 3 and 5 percent of Nutricorn in Tex Mex products or crackers will create an authentic replica of the original product, including the flavor and feel of salty snacks such as these. What is more, Nutricorn is a great source of fibre (20 percent), protein (20 percent) and minerals such as magnesium (800 mg/100g), making it a real superfood. It does not contain any of the major allergens (gluten-, dairy- and nut-free) and is vegan-friendly. Finally, the production process for Nutricorn is entirely traceable, giving the end consumer confidence in their purchase. From the seed through to the final ingredient, the company handles all stages of production through its LimaTrace branch, which works to ensure compliance with European regulations, consistency, traceability, functionality and sustainable development. In conclusion, as LCI Marketing Executive for the snack food market Emilie Coudeyre says, "our Nutricorn ingredient is an extremely innovative product which, when used in snacks in laminated forms such as tortilla chips, or sprinkled over crackers, will make them really stand out from the crowd."
