BENEO has launched Remypure, the company’s first high performance rice starch that qualifies for natural and clean label status worldwide.BENEO’s Remypure functional native rice starch is said to have high stability during processing and to perform well, particularly under harsh processing conditions such as low pH, high temperature or high shear. As a result, the company says it is well suited to applications that undergo demanding processing conditions including retorted sauces, baby food jars, dairy desserts and fruit preparations. Due to Remypure’s new thermal production process which is entirely natural, BENEO claims that its functional native rice starch achieves performance levels comparable to chemically modified food starches without using any chemicals. Remypure is described as having a clean taste and improving both the shelf life stability and texture of products. It is available in a range of variants, whether creamy or soft texture. As a result of this new product development from BENEO, the company says that food manufacturers now have a versatile clean label rice starch available, allowing viscosity build-up suitable for both gentle and demanding processing conditions.BENEO believes that Remypure will help manufacturers create products that respond to growing consumer interest in clean label and natural products. "With 71% of European consumers considering natural products as better, clean label and natural claims are becoming ever more important in the creation of food products,” said Marc-Etienne Denis, Commercial Managing Director BENEO-Remy. “We are proud to announce the launch of Remypure, as this high performance rice starch will now enable BENEO customers worldwide to make the most of growing consumer demand for natural and clean label solutions, particularly in applications requiring severe processing conditions."
