Ingredion, a global provider of ingredient solutions, has announced the launch of Purity Bio starches.
Comprising Purity Bio 301 organic tapioca starch and Purity Bio 805 organic rice starch, the new range improves viscosity for a smooth and creamy mouthfeel in liquid-based food and drink applications, while also supporting a clean and fast flavour release. Organic and gluten-free, it is also ideally suited for use in products with corresponding on-pack claims.
The introduction of Purity Bio is tailored to meet the needs of customers in the Asia Pacific region, both in terms of product development and operational efficiency.
“Not only does the new range offer the technical functionality to elevate product textures across applications, its organic certification also enables manufacturers to capitalise on demand for clean and ethically produced products. When it comes to the baby food category, for example, where the organic platform is driving growth Purity Bio range of products is the ideal option to create products with both the smooth texture and clean label consumers prefer,” says Valdirene Licht, senior vice president and president, Asia-Pacific.
“In addition, by providing manufacturers with a local source of organic starch – as opposed to a US or EU supply – we are able to shorten delivery, turnaround and response time by around a third or more.”
