Ingredion has launched an addition to its range of clean label texturisers — the Novation Lumina functional native starches.

The starches are specifically designed for light-coloured applications with subtle flavours. The texturisers’ neutral colour and flavour profile give manufacturers the ability to maintain appealing qualities of their products — even in the most delicate food applications.

The functional native starches deliver viscosity and gel strength comparable to modified starches. They provide good freeze/thaw and shelf-life stability, and have high process tolerance — making them suitable for products that undergo harsh processing conditions.

Of the countries that have provisions in place to regulate the term “natural”, Novation Lumina functional native starches meet the criteria of a natural food ingredient in the UK, France and Ireland, as well as associated EU legislation and the global ISO Technical Specification (ISO/TS 19657).

Labelled simply as corn starch, the functional native starches are also gluten-free, non-GMO and do not require allergen labelling. It is advised that manufacturers should carefully consult regulations specific to all target markets.

The product provides neutral flavour and colour, enabling formulators to develop creamy, smooth textures without impacting light colours or delicate flavours of finished products. The starches are suitable for a wide range of food applications, including yoghurts, dairy desserts and custards, dairy drinks such as drinkable yoghurts and flavoured milks, white sauces including cooking creams and ready meals, dressings, soups (ready-to-eat) and fruit preps.
