NOVATION® Indulge 3620 starch and NOVATION® Indulge 3820 starch

Create luxurious sensory experience in clean label

Imparting a smooth mouthfeel to beverage, dairy and savoury applications, NOVATION® Indulge 3620 starch and NOVATION® Indulge 3820 starch allow you to create delicious, clean label products. In addition, they offer the positive benefits of consumer-friendly labelling and potential cost savings.

Both products disperse easily in water with minimum agitation and can be used in either batch or continuous systems under a range of processing conditions. With a bland taste profile, these innovative starches are highly compatible with other ingredients, making them the ideal choice for flavour-sensitive food systems.

Enhance mouthfeel

NOVATION® Indulge 3620 starch and NOVATION® Indulge 3820 starch are the latest products to join our expanding range of high-performance, clean label ingredients.

Both have been formulated for use in liquid-based systems which require a smooth, luxuriant and rich mouthfeel. Each delivers these sought-after attributes in application, with NOVATION® Indulge 3820 starch imparting even greater creaminess and building viscosity for a heavier mouthfeel.

Easily dispersed in water and requiring minimum processing, the addition of hot water at ≤85°C is sufficient to activate the functionalities of these innovative ingredients. Moreover, as tapioca starches, they do not interfere with flavour profile. In fact, sensory studies show that products formulated with these clean label starches deliver a brighter flavour perception, compared to those made with certain modified alternatives.1
