Penford Food Ingredients, a leader in innovative carbohydrate systems and technologies, today announced the introduction of PenNovo 03 and PenNovo MD, new product lines resulting from the company’s breakthrough PenNovo technology. The announcement was made at IFT13 in Chicago.
PenNovo 03 and PenNovo MD are highly soluble, enzymatically-treated starches that improve functionality and health benefits in a variety of applications specific to each product line. The PenNovo 03 product line addresses the need for more cost-effective, high quality food products. Additionally, PenNovo MD maltodextrin products serve the growing need for non-GMO ingredients.

Penford’s newest proprietary technology, PenNovo, was first introduced in January 2013 with the announcement of PenNovo® 00 for food coatings and bakery applications. When applied to coating systems, PenNovo 00 is an ideal dextrin replacement which can improve the crispy texture and hold time of fried or baked vegetables and meats. In bakery applications, PenNovo 00 acts as a volume enhancer and/or egg white extender in gluten-free bakery. It also can be used as an egg wash replacer.
All PenNovo product lines are non-GMO, non-allergenic, kosher and gluten-free.
