As organic food sales continue to rise, Ingredion has introduced three new organic native starches for the United States and Canada. The certified organic starches may help manufacturers replace undesirable ingredients in existing products and develop new products with shorter ingredient lists that feature more familiar names.
- Purity® Bio 201 organic native corn starch
- Purity® Bio 301 organic native tapioca starch
- Purity® Bio 805 organic native waxy rice starch
In a recent article, Jim Low, Ingredion’s Vice President and General Manager for Systems and Ingredient Solutions told Food Ingredients 1st, “The launch of Purity Bio organic native starches builds on Ingredion’s two decades of experience in clean label leadership. Our continued investment in an organic supply chain provides food manufacturers with an extensive range of certified organic ingredients to help them attract today’s mindful consumers.”
The three starches can be labeled as “organic corn starch,” “organic tapioca starch,” and “organic rice starch.”
In the article, Patrick O’Brien, Ingredion’s regional platform leader for Clean & Simple Ingredients in the US and Canada also commented, “Purity Bio organic native starches deliver functionality in organic food processes in place of traditional native starches – no special preparation or equipment is needed.”
“The launch of this product line, with its unique inherent base characteristics, means that food manufacturers now have access to a broader range of certified organic solutions for developing on-trend products that deliver the taste, texture and performance that consumers demand,” he concluded.
Mr. O’Brien also recently did a podcast entitled “Drive appeal with Organic,” listen to learn more about when you need organic on your labels, and the options Ingredion has to give you the texture and stabililty you seek. See the press release here.
