Instant functional rice starch for clean label food preparations

17 December 2020

Remypure S52 P delivers soft and creamy texture and excellent product stability – even under harsh processing conditions

The new precooked functional native rice starch, Remypure S52 P from Beneo, enables for the first time 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 makes it possible for you to further embrace the clean label trend, using rice starch. Transparent and simple labels are on the rise worldwide as consumers continue to avoid products that contain artificial ingredients (1) and look for authentic and natural ingredients. 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 (2).

 

Remypure S52 P performs under challenging conditions

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 texturizer Remypure S52 P provides the perfect solution to this challenge. This pre-cooked starch performs 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. 

 

Rice ingredients brings added creaminess and mouthfeel

Rice is seen as a familiar and healthy ingredient by the large majority of consumers (3). Furthermore, it brings added creaminess and mouthfeel to any recipe thanks to the unique characteristics of the rice starch granules. Remypure S52 P has performed well in taste trials, with spoonable dressings, ranch dips and bakery creams tested all receiving positive feedback, particularly regarding the recipes’ creamy textures and stability.

 


 

Remypure S52 P has been developed for food producers searching for an instant clean label texturizer for food preparations that can withstand harsh process conditions, whilst giving an additional creamy aspect to the texture of the end product. 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.
