TIC Gums to Offer New Clean Label Solutions at SupplySide West 2017
Hydrocolloid systems for maximizing nutritional value and flavor profiles will be featured
WHITE MARSH, Md., (September 18, 2017) – TIC Gums will introduce two hydrocolloid solutions that address clean label demands, flavor and nutritional demands, and FSMA compliance regulation concerns at SupplySide West 2017. Samples of ice pops with GuarNT® USA Flavor Free 5000 and an Instant Cinnamon Chocolate Protein Beverage with Ticaloid® Ultrasmooth CL will be available to try at the TIC Gums SupplySide West Booth #EE170.
Flavor Boosting Stabilizer: GuarNT USA Flavor Free 5000
Food developers often use guar gum to prevent ice crystal formation in frozen treats, to thicken and add mouthfeel in sauces and dressings or to prevent runny instant oatmeal. Unfortunately for formulators, standard guar gum has a grassy, earthy smell and a beany, green flavor that can interfere with the sensory characteristics of foods with more delicate flavors. TIC Gums developed GuarNT USA Flavor Free 5000 to enable formulators to use guar gum in more of their applications without concerns over flavor masking.
Furthermore, since GuarNT USA Flavor Free 5000 is manufactured in the USA, typical FSMA regulations concerning guar are alleviated.
Clean Label Blend: Ticaloid Ultrasmooth CL
As health and wellness trends continue to penetrate the instant beverage category, product developers are challenged with creating innovative, clean-label beverages that maximize nutritional value without negatively impacting sensory attributes. Fortified instant beverages have an increased amount of perceivable particulates due to the addition of vitamin-mineral blends, fiber, protein and other nutritional ingredients. Ticaloid Ultrasmooth CL, from TIC Gums, is a hydrocolloid system that enhances texture and suspension in instant protein beverage applications. This cold water soluble system dissolves easily into solution, allowing consumers to experience the textural benefits.
