AKFP Debuts Clean-Label, Gluten-Free Ingredients

CLOSTER, N.J.American Key Food Products debuted two new cassava, or tapioca-based, gluten- free, clean label ingredients for baked goods applications at the 2013 International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE), Oct. 6-9.

AKFPs Tapioca Fiber, derived from cassava roots, contains both soluble and insoluble fiber, as well as a significant proportion of tapioca starch to offer high water/oil binding properties, for moister baked goods such as breads and muffins. The ingredient is clean-label and gluten-free, produced through a mechanical, non-chemical process. Additional applications include extruded snacks, breakfast cereals and fruit fillings.

AKFPs Premium Cassava Flour gives expansion and crispiness in extruded snacks, with performance comparable to potato flakes. It blends well with potato flakes, up to 50/50 proportions, is label-friendly, non-GMO, gluten-free and non-allergenic.

Earlier this year, AKFP added Suchero brand organic coconut palm sugar, an all-natural, low glycemic index (GI) sugar that can be used in specialty baked goods, energy bars and beverages, to its products offerings.
