Functional ingredients maker, BENEO, has launched its new precooked functional native rice starch, Remypure S52 P.
For the first time it allows food manufacturers to produce clean label food preparations, such as cold processed sauces, dressings, dairy desserts and bakery fillings with an instant functional native rice starch.
The new ingredient delivers soft and creamy textures and excellent product stability, even under harsh processing conditions such as shear and acid.
Remypure S52 P is available now across the globe, enabling food producers to further embrace the clean label trend, using rice starch.
As consumers continue to avoid products that contain artificial ingredients, transparent and simple labels are on the rise worldwide. Recent research has shown that one in four food and beverages launches carry a clean label claim and this increases to one in three for sauces and seasonings.
Applications such as food dressings, sauces and dips, bakery fillings, or dairy desserts, traditionally have to withstand acidity and/or high shear during preparation, and it can be challenging to maintain optimal functionality under these conditions.
The functional native texturiser Remypure S52 P provides manufacturers with the perfect solution to this problem. This pre-cooked starch perfoms just as well as modified starches in cold processing conditions that involve low pH and/or high shear, whilst being clean label at the same time.
“With the increasing demand from consumers for transparent product labels, we are always looking for ways to help our customers meet these market demands. Remypure S52 P has been developed for food producers searching for an instant clean label texturiser for food preparations that can withstand harsh process conditions, whilst giving an additional creamy aspect to the texture of the end product,” said Benoit Tavernier, Product Manager Specialty Rice Ingredients at BENEO.
“It is the first rice starch of its kind on the market for this type of application and has already been well received in a range of taste tests. With the now extended Remypure range of functional native rice starches, BENEO is well set to support existing and potential new customers in their development process of various new clean label products.”
