Developed and produced for a wide range of food applications, MGP’s specialty wheat starches provide multiple options and benefits to customers based on desired end product results. 

With a focus on delivering a combination of nutritional, functional and sensory qualities, these ingredients have continued to expand and evolve in alignment with major trends in the marketplace.  MGP’s patented Fibersym® RW and FiberRite® RW resistant wheat starches, for example, excel as fiber fortifying ingredients, providing a number of health-related and functional benefits, along with formulation and taste advantages compared to other fiber sources.

MGP’s premium cook-up and instant starches, marketed under the names Midsol™ and Pregel™, possess a whole host of functional capabilities and deliver a clean, brilliant look to product formulations.  They include starches that serve as excellent thickeners, produce tender, clear gels with good sheen, and provide exceptional freeze-thaw stability for frozen and refrigerated foods.

Many of MGP’s starches in the Midsol and Pregel lines have remarkable water-binding characteristics that improve the moistness of bakery products such as cakes and muffins, while others provide outstanding adhesion for fried batters and breadings to maintain a uniform and crispy coating.  The company also offers starches that can be used to offset the need for added sodium and other flavor-masking agents in certain types of food, including soups and sauces.

As previously announced, all of MGP’s wheat starches are Non-GMO Project Verified and also include clean label offerings.  Additionally, the company’s starches are noted for their bright white color, which can noticeably improve the appearance of several foods.
