Ingredion EMEA has developed an organic instant functional native starch, which can be used in certified organic products and delivers the quality of conventional ingredients. According to a press statement, the NOVATION® 9460 organic instant functional native starch enables food manufacturers to tap into the lucrative organic food and beverage market, with an ingredient that consumers recognise and trust.
NOVATION® 9460 is made with waxy maize which is manufactured in Europe and is an organic instant functional native starch aimed at addressing the growing demand for more sustainable products. It can be used across a range of applications, including bakery fillings, quiche, and other savoury fillings, cakes, ready meals, mayonnaise, salad dressings, sauces, and soft cheese desserts.
“NOVATION® 9460 organic instant functional native starch can help to solve many of the processing and stability challenges, faced by manufacturers, across numerous applications. It provides instant viscosity, enabling optimum control of rheological behaviour in cake batters, sauces or other semi-liquids. It can also be used in sweet bakery applications, such as cream and fruit-based fillings or savoury applications to produce a high quality, premium appearance and texture”, a statement reads.
“Now worth over EUR40bn in Europe, the organic market has doubled in size over the last 10 years, with one in seven product launches now organic. With personal health and sustainability are high on their agenda, consumers associate organic labels with stricter testing and greater transparency”, Esra Akmanli, business development manager said. “But, creating products that have the quality and sensory experience that consumers love, while complying with the many regulations required for organic certification, can be a challenge. Ingredion has experience and expertise in functional organic texturisers, clean label and organic formulation, as well as deep consumer insights that can help our customers capitalise on opportunities in organic food and drink. NOVATION® 9460 organic instant functional native starch guarantees process tolerance and shelf-life stability, enabling manufacturers to go organic without compromising on quality.”
