What & how: E-number free potato starch

Etenia™ is E-number free and can be declared starch and maltodextrin in Europe and maltodextrin in the rest of the world. The product is easy to add when processing dairy and bakery products or emulsified low-fat spreads. It has unique thermoreversible gelling characteristics, and performs more like hydrocolloids.


Benefits: superb taste and texture, low-fat, clean label, vegetarian, kosher & halal

Potato starch is a superb texturizer. It is the first choice for (new) products that aim for low-fat or low-protein, while ensuring and enhancing a rich and creamy ‘melt in the mouth’ taste. Etenia™ creates guilt-free indulgent products and enables major cost savings in fresh cheese, cream cheese, quark and yoghurt. Etenia™ is the perfect fit for clean label consumer demands, like low or no E-numbers. Finally, potato starch is by its non-animal origin suited for all vegetarian, kosher and halal products.
