Remypure is claimed by the ingredients maker to be its first rice starch to qualify for natural and clean-label status worldwide.
It is suited to applications that undergo demanding processing conditions, including retorted sauces, baby food jars, dairy desserts and fruit preparations.
Beneo says a new thermal production process allows the rice starch to achieve performance levels comparable with chemically-modified food starches, without the use of any chemicals.
A clean taste
It adds that Remypure has a clean taste and can improve both shelf-life stability and the texture of products.
The product is available in a range of variants to suit customer needs, including creamy or soft texture.
Food manufacturers now have a versatile clean-label rice starch available, allowing viscosity build-up suitable for both gentle and demanding processing conditions, says Marc-Etienne Denis, commercial md at Beneo-Remy.
Natural products better
“With 71% of European consumers considering natural products as better, clean-label and natural claims are becoming ever-more important in the creation of food products,” he suggests.
“We are proud to announce the launch of Remypure, as this high-performance rice starch will now enable Beneo customers worldwide to make the most of growing consumer demand for natural and clean-label solutions, particularly in applications requiring severe processing conditions.”
A division of the Südzucker Group, Beneo offers functional ingredients derived from chicory roots, beet sugar, rice and wheat. It has production units in Europe and South America.
