Wheat proteins and starches supplier MGP Ingredients has announced further expansion of the company’s portfolio of Non-GMO Project Verified food ingredients.Along with all of the company’s specialty wheat starches and various other specialty wheat proteins, these ingredients now also include MGP’s Arise 5000, Arise 5500 and Arise 6000 wheat protein isolates, and HWG 2009 lightly hydrolyzed wheat protein. They additionally include the company’s recently announced series of clean label wheat protein isolates, which consist of Arise 8000, Arise 8100 and Arise 8200.“This new development provides increased evidence of MGP’s strong commitment to the “better for you” market segment and to meeting rigorous testing and production requirements,” said Michael Buttshaw, vice president of ingredients sales and marketing.In addition to providing protein enrichment, the Arise protein isolates are said to deliver a multitude of functional benefits across a wide range of bakery products and other food applications. Among noticeable advantages, according to MGP, are their ability to reduce mixing time and provide enhanced dough extensibility, which effectively improves machinability of the dough during dividing, sheeting and moulding operations, especially in automated high-speed bakery systems. Because they are derived from the protein component of wheat, Arise selections are claimed to be especially ideal for wheat flour-based formulations. Pizza and flatbread crusts, tortillas, pan breads, rolls, bakery mixes, pasta and more are among the many applications for this series.Most of these same uses and benefits hold true for HWG 2009, the company says, which also has applications in instant drink mixes, nutritional bars and other nutritional snack products.
