New Clean Label Starch Withstands Harsh Processing, Debuts at SupplySide West

November 6, 2012

The ingredient, Novation Endura 0100, has “the highest process tolerance ever available in a functional native starch,” the company said.

A new functional native starch from Ingredion (Westchester, IL) is said to withstand harsh processing conditions, allowing the formulation of clean label dairy and savory products.

The ingredient, Novation Endura 0100, has “the highest process tolerance ever available in a functional native starch,” the company said in a press release.

The clean label, clean flavor starch is said to maintain its texture under high heat and shear conditions, and maintains excellent stability in chilled and frozen storage. The ingredient can be listed simply as “starch” or “cornstarch” on ingredient labels. The company said it also allows label claims of “natural,” “additive free,” and “no artificial ingredients.”

“With the highest process tolerance ever available in a functional native starch, this new series enables food manufacturers to create a wider range of appealing, natural, and additive-free products, including dressings, yogurts, UHT-processed soups, and frozen meals,” the firm stated in a press release.

“With Novation Endura 0100 starch, manufacturers now can get both a clean label and great textures in their most challenging applications, such as a glossy rich creaminess in spoonable dressings, yogurts, and dairy desserts, and a hearty thickness in soups and sauces,” said Aaron Edwards, director, global wholesome ingredients, Ingredion. “With more consumers around the world clamoring for ‘natural’ front-of-package claims and simple back-of-package ingredient lists, we wanted to help manufacturers seize the opportunity for clean label positioning

Novation Endura 0100 is part of the ingredient supplier’s Novation line of clean label starches.
