Make your snacks crispy, crunchy or crinchy.
 

 Texture meets nutrition.

 
It is the crispiness of the cracker. The lightness of the puff. The crunchiness of the first bite. Snacks are an experience all their own. And along with all the textures your customers crave, they now want "better for you" options in their snack foods, including fiber and whole grain. National Starch Food Innovation delivers the best of both worlds.

Products and services

Your snack food consumers want the right mix of satisfying crunch and crisp. The National Starch texture team can help translate those desires into great products.
  • For expansion and crispiness, we have products like BAKA-SNAK® and ULTRA-CRISP™ CS that contribute to better volume control and uniform cell structure, and reduce breakage in the final product.
  • For key properties like gelling, film forming, creating protective barriers and opacifying, we have HYLON® VII and CRISP-FILM® starches.
  • For finishing touches, National Starch offers unique specialties, such as N-TACK® binders that adhere nuts, fruits and seasonings to snacks.
  • When nutrition enhancement is called for, Hi-maize® resistant starch and Hi-maize whole grain corn flour add important nutrients and health benefits.
