PRECISA® Crisp texturizers

Optimize texture and crunch

Close the texture gap in baked snacks with snack texturizers

Today’s consumers want baked snacks with ingredients they recognize and that deliver the crunchy, crispy snacking experience expected — so they can both enjoy and feel good about eating them.

Now you can help give consumers the texture they are looking for in baked tortilla chips, crackers and fabricated potato chips with PRECISA® Crisp texturizers. This series of cost- efficient starch texturizers, based on corn, tapioca, potato and sago starches, enables you to modify and create customized textures in sheeted snacks to align with your consumers’ mouth behavior and texture preferences. 

Moving the texture attributes of a baked snack closer to that of a fried snack involves looking at several key differences including dissolvability, moistness and hardness. First, we mapped the sensations consumers experience while eating the different types of snacks. Then different PRECISA® Crisp texturizers were utilized to modulate dissolvability, oily perception, initial bite/hardness, volume of sound, and moistness to create baked snack with optimized texture and crunch.

Descriptive sensory analysis:

Change cracker texture from “soft” and “snapping” to “hard” and “shattering.”
