Rice starch in clean-label first

Remypure: is suited to applications that go through demanding processing, such as dairy desserts

A ‘clean-label’ rice starch that is said to perform well under harsh processing conditions such as low pH, high temperature or high shear, has been introduced by Beneo.

Remypure is claimed by the ingredients maker to be its first rice starch to qualify for natural and clean-label status worldwide.

It is suited to applications that undergo demanding processing conditions, including retorted sauces, baby food jars, dairy desserts and fruit preparations.

Beneo says a new thermal production process allows the rice starch to achieve performance levels comparable with chemically-modified food starches, without the use of any chemicals.

A clean taste

It adds that Remypure has a clean taste and can improve both shelf-life stability and the texture of products.

The product is available in a range of variants to suit customer needs, including creamy or soft texture.

Food manufacturers now have a versatile clean-label rice starch available, allowing viscosity build-up suitable for both gentle and demanding processing conditions, says Marc-Etienne Denis, commercial md at Beneo-Remy.

Natural products better

“With 71% of European consumers considering natural products as better, clean-label and natural claims are becoming ever-more important in the creation of food products,” he suggests.

“We are proud to announce the launch of Remypure, as this high-performance rice starch will now enable Beneo customers worldwide to make the most of growing consumer demand for natural and clean-label solutions, particularly in applications requiring severe processing conditions.”

A division of the Südzucker Group, Beneo offers functional ingredients derived from chicory roots, beet sugar, rice and wheat. It has production units in Europe and South America.
