During SupplySide West, Grain Processing Corp. (Muscatine, IA) served up two delicious samples highlighting some of its ingredients. A Mocha Meal-Replacement Drink included Maltrin QD maltodextrin, TruBran corn bran, and Inscosity modified food starch. As the firm explains, Maltrin QD maltodextrinprovides bulking, carrying, and dispersing properties to dry blends and enhances formulas with excellent mouthfeel and minimal flavor, while delivering a readily digestible carbohydrate source. TruBran corn bran provides a good source of fiber, with minimal impact on flavor and mouthfeel. Inscosity modified food starch provides a smooth, creamy mouthfeel and imparts instant viscosity to beverages.

The company also served up Snack Puffs-extruded fiber puffs made from TruBran corn brand along with Pure-Set modified food starch. The company says Pure-Set modified food starch improves expansion and crispiness of the snack puff.
