Ebro Ingredients produces its own line of rice starches. Rice starch has a very fine granularity with granules having about the same size as fat globules, making it a possible fat replacer. After heating with water it forms a gel with a smooth and creamy texture. Rice starch also has a neutral taste and clear white colour, assuring preservation of the authentic taste and colour of your food product. Main advantages of rice starch are: neutral taste, white colour, transparent gel, soft creamy texture, possible fat replacer, GMO-, gluten- and allergen free, and great digestibility. Rice starch can be used in a large number of applications, including: baby foods and organic infant meals, ready-to-eat meals, soups & sauces, cereals and cereal bars, confectionery coatings, and organic food products.
Our pea starch concentrates and Faba bean concentrates are natural starches that have a great gelling capacity. Compared to native potato starch, pea starch has large starch granules that can absorb relatively high amounts of water. Additionally it carries still around 12-15% of valuable protein.
Different applications have been developed for these starch concentrates, like:
- pet food
- potato replacements
- among others.
