WESTCHESTER, Ill.Ingredion launched its new UNI-PURE Dys-sperse thickener, which combines the attributes of starches and gums to deliver versatility, consistency and convenience for use in dysphagia food and beverage products.
UNI-PURE Dys-sperse can be used in a broad range of foods and beverages, including hot and cold, low pH and neutral pH and protein-based. UNI-PURE Dys-sperse disperses easily and thickens rapidly, reaching targeted viscosity in about two minutes. And the level of viscosity stays consistent over time.
The thickener preserves the flavor and smell of food and beverages and doesnt alter their appearance. It also has a more desirable mouthfeel than starch-based and gum-based thickeners.
According to Ingredion's sensory data, when compared to other commercial starch- and gum-based thickeners, UNI-PURE Dys-sperse is closest to unthickened apple juice in texture and flavor.
In 2013, Ingredion introduced WEIGHTAIN, a whole-grain-based satiety ingredient. The proprietary weight management system was shown in clinical studies to suppress hunger, and reduce calorie intake by approximately 50 to 100 calories per day.
