Potato fibres for texture in meat, bakery and savoury applications

Ingredion has launched a new clean label potato fibre to its portfolio in order to bring increased functionality, quality and potential cost savings to manufacturers of bakery, savoury and meat products. Potex and Potex Crown potato fibres are designed to deliver appealing textures in processed meats and savoury applications and to boost the freshness of bakery items for optimal consumer appeal.  The insoluble potato fibres can absorb and retain up to 12 times their own weight, enabling them to increase the juiciness of fresh and processed meats or add moisture to baked goods. From sausages and hamburgers to soups and sauces, Potex can be used across a broad range of applications. Its excellent water and oil absorption properties can also reduce stickiness during production, a problem which commonly results in downtime and product wastage. The fibres are resistant to mechanical treatment and freeze/thaw cycles, also making them suitable for dairy products and fruit preparations. Manufacturers can also use Potex to affordably keep products such as pastries, breads and cookies fresher for longer. Easy to use and incorporate into formulations, the potato fibre reduces stickiness and therefore contributes to yield increase, waste reduction and less production downtime. Naturally gluten-free, Potex is suitable for vegetarian formulations and can be used as a stabilizer in gluten-free products. This enables manufacturers to tap into growing consumer dietary choices and trends. A more finely ground variation, Potex Crown, is available for products that require a smoother texture and firmer consistency. Simply declared as ‘potato fibre’ on the label, Potex and Potex Crown are available in the UK, Ireland, Middle East, Turkey and Africa. This portfolio extension follows Ingredion’s announcement of its strategic alliance with potato-based starch and fibre manufacturer, Lyckeby, in September 2017. The Potex products are the latest Lyckeby ingredients that Ingredion has made available to its customer base following the partnership.
