BENEO’s new Remypure is the first high performance rice starch that qualifies for natural and clean label status worldwide.

BENEO’s Remypure functional native rice starch has high stability during processing and performs well, even under harsh processing conditions such as low pH, high temperature or high shear. As a result, it is well suited to applications that undergo demanding processing conditions including retorted sauces, baby food jars, dairy desserts and fruit preparations.

Because Remypure’s new thermal production process is entirely natural, BENEO’s functional native rice starch achieves performance levels comparable to chemically modified food starches—without using any chemicals. Now manufacturers worldwide can deliver cleaner labels by using Remypure.

Remypure has a clean taste and improves both shelf life stability and texture of products. It is available in a range of variants to meet various customers’ requirements—whether a product needs a creamy or soft texture. As a result of this new product development from BENEO, food manufacturers now have a versatile clean label rice starch available, allowing viscosity build-up suitable for both gentle and demanding processing conditions.

BENEO’s Remypure will help manufacturers create products that respond to growing consumer interest in clean label and natural products.

“With 65% of consumers in the Americas considering natural products as better and 47% actively looking for natural products when making food purchase decisions , clean label and natural claims are becoming ever more important in the creation of food products,” says Marc-Etienne Denis, commercial managing director for 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, even in applications requiring severe processing conditions.”
