Produce better coatings that adhere and hold up.
 
 

 A new dimension.

 
Trying to make your battered products light and crispy? Want your hearty breaded products to be crunchy on the outside and succulent on the inside? Breading, batters and coatings add a whole new dimension to your products by adding texture, flavor, color, and interest. But they present challenges, too: adhesion, nutrition, shelf life, even heat lamp tolerance. Ingredion can help.
