New functional clean label rice starch
Remypure S52 rice starch from Beneo delivers excellent product stability enabling food manufacturers to create unique textures
BENEO has launched its new Remypure S52 clean label rice starch which is the second functional clean label rice starch in the company’s portfolio. This new ingredient provides food manufacturers with an opportunity to create unique textures and excellent product stability even under harsh processing conditions.
BENEO is using a thermal inhibition process technology to strengthen native rice starch granules to enhance their functional properties. The results deliver 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 pleasant textures and excellent freeze/thaw stability. As these products require high performance under shear, acidity and heat, the challenge has been to maintain optimal functionality under conditions such as gentle pasteurization to more severe retorting in both neutral and acidic food matrices. Now Remypure S52, as a clean label texturizer, gives manufacturers options without the need for modified starches under conditions ranging from low pH to high temperature and high shear.
Remypure works well in:
- Soups and sauces
- Fruit preparations
- Baby food jars
- Dairy desserts
- Clean label
- High tolerance towards low pH, high temperatures and high shear
- High product stability (shelf-life, freeze-thaw) thanks to the rice origin
- Unique textures
- Neutral taste
