No matter how fast and simple you've made your food product to prepare, consumers are always going to want to do it even faster. Ingredion instant starches provide the solution. Our broad range of instant or cold water swelling (CWS) starches provide tremendous formulation flexibility while taking the complexity and cost out of your processes.
Our instant starches deliver the quality you expect from a traditional cook-up starch, yet there is no need for heating and subsequent cooling, so you save time and energy without compromising the finished product. Because we offer so many different CWS starches - based on maize, waxy maize, tapioca and our unique NOVATION® functional native starch technology - you can create just the right texture for your foods and beverages. From smooth and creamy for desserts and dressings to great mouthfeel for low-viscosity products, our instant starches deliver what you need.
Ingredion also offers products that allow you to reduce or even replace expensive ingredients and realise substantial cost savings. For dressings manufacturers, for example, both egg and oil prices have reached record highs. For cost savings, try our N-CREAMER™ 46 starch for egg yolk replacement in cold processed dressings. To combat the rising cost of soya bean oil, you can reduce the oil without changing the texture of your product by using a combination of ULTRA-TEX® SR and N-DULGE® C1 starches to simulate both the body and mouthfeel of oil.
