Rice starch to cut the fat
The new Remyline AX-FG-P speciality rice starch can reduce fat uptake in tortilla chips by up to 50 per cent, A&B Ingredients says. The starch also reduces breakage, improves machinability during processing and can increase the crispiness of the chips. Remyline AXS-FG-P is used at a level of 2-5 percent, replacing part of the corn flour used. Remyline AX-FG-P is a ?native starch? produced through a natural process. It is labelled as ?rice starch? on the finished package label. Founded in 1990, A&B Ingredients is a leading supplier of rice-based products, pure fruit extracts, organic banana bits, antioxidants and antimicrobials for the food industry.
