Ingredion Expands to Rice-based Starches

Ricestarch.imgThe company, Ingredion, is expanding its portfolio of clean label starches to 30 products with the release of additional two multi-functional starches.

Derived from rice, the company says that NOVATION 8300 and NOVATION 8600 starches will enable manufacturers to develop on-trend, consumer-winning recipes with indulgent textures and a consumer-preferred simple ‘rice starch’ label on the ingredients list.

The two new starches are said to combine moderate to high process tolerance with excellent texture stability.

NOVATION 8300 and NOVATION 8600 will perform well under the most challenging conditions, including high brix and high protein content, Ingredion claims.

The two new ingredients are said to be suitable for use in moderate to high processing conditions for applications in frozen, refrigerated or ambient storage. This includes fruit preparation and dairy desserts, as well as soups, sauces and ready meals. Bolstering its portfolio of clean label products, Ingredion’s NOVATION 8300 and NOVATION 8600 starches have already been introduced across the US and APAC regions, but are now available in Europe.

With a naturally small granule size, rice starch is said to deliver a rich and creamy texture in products such as yoghurts, soups and sauces.

“As the trend for clean label becomes progressively more mainstream, there is a challenge for manufacturers to create products that meet this need, taste great and maintain texture over their shelf life, even under challenging conditions such as high brix or high protein applications,” said Mona Schmitz-Hübsch, European Marketing Manager at Ingredion. “Insights from our ‘Cracking the Clean Label Code’ report found that yoghurts are considered both a healthy option and a thick and creamy texture with a clean label. This is where the benefits of functional ingredients that support a natural positioning, such as rice starches, really come into their own.”

“The superior texture stability of our new NOVATION 8300 and NOVATION 8600 starches allow manufacturers in fruit preparation to produce even larger batch sizes because the final product will keep a stable texture for longer. By producing larger batch sizes and reducing wastage from products that do not offer the same texture stability, manufacturers can make significant cost savings.”

“The ability to produce more at a time significantly improves supply flexibility and allows manufacturers to take advantage of opportunities for higher sales in peak seasons.”

“In recent trials, custard formulated with NOVATION 8300 or NOVATION 8600 starches showed a greater texture stability over the full shelf-life, whereas products using native waxy rice starches showed texture defects close to the best before date.”

The two new rice based NOVATION functional native starches are said to complement Ingredion’s over 25-strong portfolio of corn, waxy corn, tapioca and potato based functional native clean label starches.

Ingredion is an ingredients company that produces sweeteners, starches and exclusive ingredients from plant resources. The company supplies solutions for nearly 60 industry sectors across the globe, and provides for over 40 countries.
