These days, food preparation companies are looking for cost-effective ways to produce their product. Yet, quality should be retained at all times. With Eliane™ we offer you a whole new technique that allows food preparation with unique functionality, texture, expansion characteristics and cost saving opportunities.

What is Eliane™?

Eliane™ is our ‘waxy potato’ starch containing more than 95% amylopectin. The potato breed used for this starch was bred in-house by Avebe through traditional well-accepted classical breeding techniques: the traditional way of breeding.

Because we culture our own potato breeds, we are in control of all characteristics of the end product: clean label potato starch. Eliane™ is the first amylopectin potato starch in the world obtained through traditional breeding. Besides, with Eliane™ we offer an environmentally friendly soya and corn starch substitute.

How does Eliane™ work?

Eliane™ allows development of applications where potato starch is not generally used. Think about dairy products, bakery applications and meat preparation. Eliane™ gives a unique twist to the superior functionality that potato starch is renown for: a short, shiny texture. Every product has its own quality requirements, therefore our experts will assist in formulating the right solution for your product.
