As a lower cost alternative to using single-source hydrocolloids, IFP’s Vis*Quick® blends are specially formulated to maximize functionality while minimizing cost. Our Insta*Rice*Trin® Maltodextrins are key ingredients in sports drinks, beverages, table-top sweeteners, and are used as carriers for high-end probiotics.
