Ingredients Solutions, Inc.
In 1992 Dr. Harris J. (Pete) Bixler Sc.D started the company now known as Ingredients Solutions, Inc. ISI was founded with a simple philosophy and business strategy: Offer the customer the most cost-effective products with consistent high quality and application technical support. Today ISI is the world’s largest independent supplier of carrageenan.
Over the years, many things have changed, including developing relationships with several additional hydrocolloid manufacturers that has allowed ISI to significantly expand our ingredient portfolio and assure supply security. Regardless of our growth, our business strategy has remained the same.
Our product line has grown to include Agar, Gellan Gum, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Konjac Gum, Locust Bean Gum, Methylcellulose, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Nalgin Sodium Alginate, Pectin, Powdered Pea Protein, Tara Gum, Texturized Pea Protein, and Xanthan Gum. Our R&D facilities have also expanded to ensure the highest level of customer satisfaction possible. From the formulation stage to the production stage, we are with you step by step!
