Organic Starches to Meet Growing Food Industry Demand

Organic Starches to Meet Growing Food Industry Demand

The organic German food industry is booming, with organic farming playing, once again, a key role in the food and agriculture industries. So much so that in 2017, the federal government is expected to invest €20 million to support and strengthen organic farming in order to push organically cultivated land to total 20% of Germany’s overall cropland.

As producers look to source home-grown organic ingredients with minimum transportation requirements, KRÖNER-STÄRKE, a leading German producer of wheat starches, is now in a prime position to help meet the surge in demand for vegetarian and organic food. The company, which has been producing organic versions of its popular range of starches for nearly thirty years now, is helping food producers to meet strict clean-label and organic standards.

One of KRÖNER-STÄRKE’s most popular organic gluten free wheat starches, SANOSTAR, offers outstanding taste and perfect baking properties. It is 100% non-GMO and has guaranteed compliance with improved safety standards as each production batch is analysed by an external laboratory. Its sister product, SANOGEL, a cold swelling organic gluten free wheat starch, is also naturally produced to give a functional ingredient of the highest standard for food processors needing an organic, gluten free alternative starch.

The firm can provide the supply chain with a dependable source of high standard, organic raw materials, which can be used as functional and clean label ingredients in a wide variety of food products. Applications for its organic starches are wide reaching and range from baked goods, delicatessen products, vegetarian burgers, meat and meat replacement products to soups, batters, sauces and fruit preparations.

No longer a niche sector available only in health food shops, organic and clean-label foods are making an increasingly big appearance in main supermarkets and discount stores too. Both bread producers and those catering for the vegan or vegetarian market can take advantage of KRÖNER-STÄRKE’s organic vital wheat gluten. In the bakery sector, it adds texture and softness to bread and in the growing vegan/vegetarian sector, it is ideal for use in Seitan, a meat replacement product.

There is a growing sense of responsibility from consumers to seek processing methods known to be kinder to the environment and which they believe to be more sustainable. Food producers offering an organic alternative to their usual products can tap into this growing market – providing they can vouch for the quality of their raw materials.

Sourcing dependable raw materials need not be difficult. With KRÖNER-STÄRKE’s totally chemical-free approach to the production of all of its starches, food producers are guaranteed organic starches with full traceability. Even the water used in its grain processing stage is sourced from its own natural spring water well.

KRÖNER-STÄRKE routinely monitors both the land and grain suppliers it uses in order to ensure complete integrity in its own organic supply chain. The company has an in-depth knowledge of the organic cultivation methods used in the production of its raw materials and makes sure that all of its delivery partners adhere to the standards set by European Organic Regulations with regard to the use of pesticides.

Product development technician, Maren Wiese, comments: “We are in an excellent position to satisfy the German appetite for top quality raw ingredients with regional roots, and that do not cost the earth. Our organic starches are available in native, pre-gelatinised or gluten free form and enable food processors to benefit from excellent functionality whilst at the same time responding to the consumer demand for more sustainable, clean-label ingredients in food.”
