BENEO achieving excellence with new baby food rice starches
May 2013 - BENEO, one of the leading manufacturers in functional ingredients, is setting the standard for baby food rice starch with its new range, available worldwide from May 2013. Ideal for use in fruit and vegetable based jars, the baby food rice starch range not only meets but also exceeds today’s stringent market and regulatory standards, offering producers the ultimate in functional rice ingredients for baby jar applications.
Following in depth assessment of production processes, including extensive testing, BENEO’s baby food rice starch meets and exceeds industry and regulatory requirements. The new product range also offers a wide range of nutritional and technical benefits to manufacturers. The naturally sourced texturiser qualifies for hypoallergenic, clean label, organic, as well as non-GMO products. Test trials have shown that vegetable and fruit jars with BENEO’s baby food rice starch have improved product stability in terms of viscosity, syneresis control and shelf-life. In addition, the ingredient’s small particle size creates a creamy texture without any effect on the end product’s taste or colour. Rice is furthermore highly digestible and consequently interesting for baby food applications.
Pierre Donck, Product Manager Rice Derivatives at BENEO, comments: "With a strong heritage in rice starches, BENEO rice derivatives are used worldwide as hypoallergenic texturisers from nature to improve the mouthfeel, shelf life and structure of food products. Thanks to our stringent production processes and testing procedures, there is no limit to the age at which consumers can benefit from the technical and nutritional advantages of our rice starches."
