In response to growing consumer demand for convenient, but nevertheless ‘home-made’ and healthy ready meals, we have developed a delicious microwavable risotto with our product Eliane™, a waxy potato starch. This product helps food manufacturers to overcome the challenge and meet consumer demand in several applications such as ready meals, soups, sauces and dressings.
Innovation Sales Manager Malin Morin: ‘We found the key to excellent taste and texture differentiation. It is possible to achieve a reduction of up to 50% fat, while maintaining the buttery mouth feel and excellent taste. Adding our plant-based product and taking out animal-based ingredients makes our solution suitable for a vegan, vegeterian or flexitarian lifestyle.
This breakthrough combines excellent texturising and nutrition with a ‘free from’ label – all from a unique process and the potato as a natural source.’
