New rice starch revealed
Functional ingredients manufacturer Beneo has launched a new clean label rice starch, Remypure S52, which it says will allow food manufacturers an opportunity to create unique textures and excellent product stability, even under harsh processing conditions.
Beneo says its thermal inhibition process strengthens native rice starch granules to enhance their functional properties.
This technology, it adds, delivers an ingredient comparable or superior to chemically modified food starches – without the use of chemicals.
Food starches are generally used as thickeners in foods such as soups, sauces and ready-to-eat meals to create texture and provide freeze/thaw stability.
