US-based Malt Products Corporation (MPC), a specialist manufacturer of malted barley extract and other natural sweeteners, has designed an Innovations Lab to help firms in the sector, including confectionery markets with ingredients testing.

As the company noted, its new facilities at its Minneapolis site will allow customers to experiment with new formulations and gain insight into critical flavour and stability properties, which remain key aspects of new product development. The lab will  be used for a wide variety of products, including baked goods, creamers, nut butters, chocolates, confections, dressings and marinades, and plant-based proteins.
