The functionality of modified starch, with a simple flour label

HOMECRAFT® Create rice flours can support you to deliver the top front-of-pack claims that would make consumers switch brands, such as natural, free from artificial ingredients, and no E-numbers. These appealing claims also mean that parents and will pay 20-30% more for their existing brand.[1]

HOMECRAFT® Create 835 and 865 rice flours provide the viscosity, process tolerance and stability of a modified starch, while being labelled as a flour. 

Keep chlorates low

EU regulation on food intended for infants and young children sets a maximum residue levels of chlorate of 10 ppb. This means that you need to source low chlorate food ingredients to help support compliance and drive your innovation in the baby food market. HOMECRAFT® Create 835 multifunctional rice flour can help support compliance with EU regulations on baby and infant food. It provides the functionality of a modified starch, with a consumer-preferred “rice flour” label and low chlorate levels.
