Ingredion Incorporated: INGREDION TO CONSOLIDATE MANUFACTURING FACILITIES IN BRAZIL

NETWORK OPTIMIZATION TO REDUCE COSTS AND ENHANCE PRODUCTIVITY

WESTCHESTER, Ill., September 8, 2015 - Ingredion Incorporated (NYSE: INGR), a
leading global provider of ingredient solutions to diversified industries,
announced today that it plans to consolidate its manufacturing network in
Brazil. Plants in Trombudo Central and Conchal will be closed and production
will be moved to plants in Balsa Nova and Mogi Guaçu, respectively.

The consolidation will begin early in 2016 and should be complete by the end
of the year. It is expected to result in annual cost savings of $6 - 8
million USD beginning in 2017. Total pre-tax restructuring-related charges of
$13 - 16 million USD are anticipated in the third quarter of 2015.

"We continuously evaluate our manufacturing network for improvement
opportunities. Consolidating production into Balsa Nova and Mogi Guaçu is
part of our overall restructuring program in our Brazilian operations to
reduce costs in our network," said Ricardo Souza, president, Ingredion South
America.

Ingredion CFO, Jack Fortnum noted, "The slowing economy recently has impacted
volumes in Brazil. However, our continuous improvement programs continue to
drive good operational efficiencies. We will remain vigilant in our efforts
to maximize productivity and enhance shareholder value."

In addition to Balsa Nova and Mogi Guaçu, Ingredion will continue to operate
facilities in Cabo de Santo Agostinho and São Gonçalo, Brazil.
