NOVATION® rice starches

Superior texture stability with a clean label

Tapping on the familiarity and recognisability of rice as a staple, our specialty rice ingredients help manufacturers create indulgent, high quality, clean label products that consumers desire.


When it comes to launching a new food product, achieving the perfect texture is key.
