Westhove viscoplus: a great clean label partner
Discover the cook-up texturiser that brings the real home-made taste and traditional texture to your convenience food products
Limagrain Céréales Ingrédients has launched westhove viscoplus, a new functional flour for convenience food. Westhove viscoplus is a wheat flour ingredient dedicated to texturise in hot conditions and to substitute starch.
One of the benefits of this new product is that it does not have a quick meltaway, but gives a smooth and creamy result with an authentic taste and the traditional texture of a home-made product. In addition, it does not have the chemical off-taste that can be found with modified starch.
The excellent texturising properties allow you to obtain a consistency and stability similar to that of starch with both traditional colour and a smooth texture. Furthermore, westhove viscoplus is declared as wheat flour thus allowing a clean label declaration on your ingredient list.
Use westhove viscoplus in chilled or frozen sauces, soups, sauce based ready meals and dairy products to obtain the real home-made taste and traditional texture that meet your consumers’ expectations.
