Two clean-label starches aimed at improving the texture and stability in products such as yogurts, soups and sauces have been launched by Ingredion.

Derived from rice, Novation 8300 and Novation 8600 starches enable manufacturers to develop on-trend, consumer-winning recipes with indulgent textures, the company claimed.

High process tolerance

The starches combine moderate to high process tolerance with excellent texture stability and perform well in the most demanding processing conditions, including high protein applications, it added.

Moreover, their superior texture stability allows for larger batch sizes because the final product will keep a stable texture for longer, said Mona Schmitz-Hübsch, Ingredion’s European marketing manager.

‘Thick and creamy texture’

“Insights from our Cracking the Clean Label Code report found that yogurts are considered both a healthy option and a treat, so a thick and creamy texture with a clean label is preferred,” ​she said.

“This is where the benefits of functional ingredients that support a natural positioning come into their own.”
