HOMECRAFT® Create multi-functional tapioca flours

Taste and texture consumers love, with the tapioca flour label they want

Consumers are checking labels more than ever before and want to see ingredients they expect and find acceptable. At the same time, they want tasty, quality food products designed to delight all the senses. Yet delivering all those characteristics when products must go through freeze/thaw, hold up and look great in the refrigerator over time used to be a challenge.

How can you get all the functional attributes of modified starch along with a clean taste and consumer-preferred label?

Secure a place in the shopping carts of consumers perusing grocery stores for food products with clean and simple labels by formulating with an innovative ingredient that gives you all the same functionality as modified starch but comes with a clean and simple “tapioca flour” label. You’ll get the performance you need, and your consumers will get the creamy mouthfeel and vibrant flavors they crave and expect. This clean-taste flour also brings you:

  • Viscosity and gel strength of modified starches
  • Smooth texture with no gelling or syneresis
  • Enhanced texture stability over shelf life
  • Improved freeze/thaw performance

And because it can build greater viscosity than other clean label starches can, our innovative tapioca flour enables you to manage use levels and optimize costs in many applications.

Secure a place in more carts

Research shows that many consumers perceive tapioca flour as even more “natural” than starches in many applications. 1 By choosing HOMECRAFT® Create multi-functional tapioca flours, your product can feature a clean label, as well as non-GMO and gluten-free claims, making it even more attractive.

Deliver just-right texture and appeal

Envision your sauce or custard with a smoother, glossier surface. Or yogurt with an indulgent and longer-lasting mouthfeel. The properties of our flour enable you to cut back on fat while offering an improved nutritional profile. And you can maintain or improve flavor and texture.

And when it comes to the eating experience, consumers will love your products’ vibrant flavors and enhanced, creamy mouthfeel.

Improve preference from label to table in:

  • Soups (ready-to-eat or liquid concentrate)
  • Sauces in ready meals and in synthetic cooking creams
  • Dressings
  • Indulgent dairy desserts such as custard
  • Dairy drinks such as yogurt drinks and flavored milk drinks
