Cargill is expanding its portfolio of label-friendly functional native starches with the addition of three potato starches designed for meat, meat alternatives and culinary applications. Designed for mild processing conditions, these starches offer superior viscosity and improved sensory experience, without compromising on taste and appearance. The products will be available worldwide under the SimPure brand.
“In today’s marketplace, consumers are scrutinizing product labels like never before,” said Laura Goodbrand, starch product line manager, Cargill Europe. “Changing consumer preferences highlight the desire for foods made with simple, recognizable ingredients, yet they still expect the same sensory and texture experiences. As we continue to grow our SimPure portfolio, delivering on those competing needs drives our product development efforts.”
Designed for use in low-processing conditions, Cargill’s newest SimPure starches offer food developers a range of options for both instant and cook-up applications. Three label-friendly starches for meat, meat alternatives and culinary applications.
The SimPure native starch portfolio was launched in October 2017 to address consumer demand for label-friendly products. The first tailor made starch, SimPure 99560, was designed to effectively replace modified starches in frozen meals and slow cooked meats.
Earlier this year, Cargill and its Danish potato starch partner, AKV Langholt AmbA,- invested in a new potato starch production unit at their Langholt facility in Denmark which was officially inaugurated on the 24th of August 2018. The new SimPure products have been produced at this state-of-the-art processing facility, with more products in development.
