Emsland group has developed a range of confectionery starches that enable food manufacturers to develop gelatin-free jellies. Emden® ET 15 and Emden® ET 50
are multifunctional starches that are fast gelling and yield jellies with a high clarity and good elastic texture.
Empro® E 86 works very good for TVP processes. As an improved version we could offer now the Empro® E 86 LS, which is optimized in particle size distribution and sodium content.
Empro® E 86 HV is a very good texturiser for HME products. It gives a nice fibrous structure and uniform surface. It could be very good combined with starches and fibres in order to adjust the texture to the desired properties.
Emwaxy® starches origin from a natural potato variety being cultivated through traditional, non-GMO breeding techniques.
In food applications, the use of Emwaxy® has the following characteristics:
• Clean flavour and bland taste
• High viscosity
• Products with Emwaxy® have an appealing and glossy appearance
• Low gelatinization temperature
• Positive effect on freshness experience
• Excellent smooth and creamy mouthfeel
