Ingredion EMEA has announced the launch of Novation Lumina 8300 and 8600 functional native rice starches.
The starches are designed to improve colour and flavour, including in white products.
Ingredion says that its starches aim to meet sensory requirements in white or light-coloured applications with delicate flavours.
Novation Lumina 8300/8600 enables improved consumer preference and allows for clean label and natural applications.
Daniel Haley, global platform leader, Clean & simple ingredients at Ingredion, said: “After significantly expanding our Thai facility in June 2020, we harnessed our capabilities in manufacturing, Idea Labs Innovation Centres and Atlas proprietary consumer insights to identify ingredients and technologies that would address unmet customer needs. This resulted in the launch of the first-ever multi-functional rice flours and now the introduction of these functional native rice starches.”
The new starches have a “smooth and creamy” texture, combined with hypoallergenic properties, high digestibility and lower viscosity development.
