MGP is equipped to help food manufacturers meet consumer demand for clean label products that are perceived as being more wholesome.
At the forefront of MGP’s Clean Label-oriented ingredients are the premium native wheat starches Midsol™ 50 and Pregel™ 10, as well as MGP’s wheat protein isolate Arise® 8000. These ingredients deliver a multitude of functional benefits across a wide array of food applications, and they are Non-GMO Project Verified.
Midsol 50 and Pregel 10 starches can help control moisture, impart desired texture and tenderness, contribute smooth film-forming properties, increase viscosity, improve binding and adhesion, and enhance product shelf life. Applications range from batters and coatings to cakes, mixes, cookies, biscuits and soups, sauces and salad dressings.
Among the benefits of Arise 8000 are its ability to provide enhanced dough strength and elasticity and effectively supplement weak flour characteristics for added volume. Breads, rolls, buns, biscuits and bakery mixes top the list of principal applications for this ingredient.
In addition to providing Clean Label solutions, MGP offers numerous choices that address growing needs for Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients. These currently consist of a combination of 22 specialty wheat starches and proteins. Along with Midsol 50, Pregel 10 and Arise 8000, they include signature proprietary ingredients such as Fibersym® RW resistant wheat starch, all other starches in the Midsol and Pregel lines, Optein® lightly hydrolyzed wheat protein, and FP™ 300 and FP™ 600 wheat protein concentrates.
