Ingredion introduces new clean label starch


2019-06-17

Global ingredient solutions provider Ingredion has added a functional native starch to its portfolio of clean and simple co-texturisers with the launch of NOVATION® Indulge 2920 starch. The new product is a corn-based starch which can support lower-fat and lower-calorie products and the production of foods with a healthier profile.  

Supporting a clean label, NOVATION® Indulge 2920 starch enables food producers to improve mouthfeel by offering the same functionality as a modified starch while replacing or reducing ingredients such as fat and oil.

Available in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, NOVATION® Indulge 2920 can be used across a range of savoury and dairy products from soups and sauces to dairy desserts and dairy drinks. It offers a consumer-friendly ingredient listing of ‘starch’ (or ‘cornflour’ in the UK). It can also enable cost savings by replacing raw ingredients such as fat and oil without compromising texture.

Other production benefits include the ingredient’s functionality in low-shear instant applications and throughout broad processes from low shear to cold process. In addition, NOVATION® Indulge 2920 starch is agglomerated, making it easier to disperse. This also brings the potential to reduce the volume of dust typically generated by fine powders during the manufacturing process, the company said.
