GPC Showcases Food Science Student Competition Winners – Booth 2812
Grain Processing Corporation is proud to announce an exciting collaboration with Iowa State University that provided food science students with a hands-on product development learning experience. The GPC Ingredient Application Challenge required student teams to conceptualize and execute a product demo featuring GPC’s premier MALTRIN® maltodextrins and specialty starches. Entries were judged on several criteria including the appropriate use of industrial ingredients, formulation details, the learning gained from the development process, creativity, presentation and, of course, taste. The six-week Challenge culminated in March at a finale event held on-campus, with the winning appetizer concept from the competition to be showcased at IFT’16.
The winner, a Coconut Curry Chicken Rice Cup features PURE-GEL® modified starch in the filling for stabilized viscosity. PURE-GEL® starches provide superior stability in refrigeration, freeze/thaw, high heat and acid and shear conditions. A second entry from the Challenge will also be featured to demonstrate the coating properties of INSTANT PURE-COTE® film-forming starch. These Chickpea Fries will be accompanied by a Sriracha Pineapple Dipping Sauce.
When visiting the GPC booth at IFT’16 to view these winners, we invite you to toast the tasty appetizers with a Mocktail utilizing MALTRIN QD® (quick dispersing) maltodextrin. This premium, agglomerated maltodextrin quickly disperses to add body and build mouth-feel in the beverage.
