ADM and Vedan International have partnered to create a new line of speciality tapioca starches and tapioca maltodextrin ingredients for manufacturers.
The starches are made for use in a wide range of applications such as dressings, sauces, bakery fillings, ice cream, yogurt, soups, bakery, beverages, meat and dry sausages.
According to ADM, the starches help to improve the stability of the products by binding water in foods and can also enhance the viscosity and mouthfeel of products.
Both the tapioca starches and tapioca maltodextrin ingredients are non-GMO, and the maltodextrin is also available in an organic version.
Kris DiTommaso, vice-president of ADM’s starch business said: “Over the past few years, ADM has been focused on expanding the range of our starch-based ingredient options – especially those that are plant-based –to provide cleaner label options and solutions for customers.
”Tapioca’s neutral taste profile allows it to be used in a wide range of applications, and we are pleased to now add tapioca-based modified starches and maltodextrins to our growing starch ingredient portfolio.”
