The latest addition to Limagrain Céréales Ingrédients' snack product range is a crisp-style maize product that has a different texture on either side.

Maize super chips have a light and innovative texture, according to Patricia Panel-Dusséaux, marketing manager for snack products at Limagrain Céréales Ingrédients. "The combination of our unique and specific corn raw material and a two-sided crisp, with one side ridged and the other smooth, gives maize super chips a light, crunchy texture," says Panel-Dusséaux.

The ridged side of the crisp helps to retain flavour, she says. Each crisp expands slightly differently, curving as they are fried. "The low density and irregular shape of the crisps after expansion make them easier to pack into bags," she adds.

Made using only cornflour, sugar and salt, the crisps are designed to appeal to the 'natural' and premium snacking markets, says the company. They have no additives.

Limagrain Céréales Ingrédients is a subsidiary of the Limagrain Group, one of Europe's leading producers of field and vegetable seeds. It developed the crisp-style product at its new product development laboratory. The company has expertise in five markets: snacks, breakfast cereals, bakery, convenience food and non-food applications (bioplastics from cereals).
