Pure Food Starches

PURE-DENT® Plating Starch
A starch specifically modified to increase surface area for excellent load carrying capacity in simple dry blend or plating applications. Oily, sticky or difficult to handle ingredients can be successfully turned into manageable powders by dry blending with PURE-DENT® B730 modified food starch.

PURE-DENT® B700 Pure Corn Starch
An unmodified starch from common dent corn, PURE-DENT® B700 offers high viscosity and excellent gel strength at an economical price. This clean-flavored corn starch is ideal for basic thickening properties in cooked puddings, heat-and-eat sauces, salad dressings and pet foods.

PURE-DENT® Oxidized Starch
A starch designed for applications where exceptionally white color or superior adhesion properties are required such as batter and breading applications.

PURE-GEL® Stabilized Starch
Compared to typical cook-up starches, PURE-GEL® modified starches hydrate easily and impart high viscosity. In addition, these starches are designed to provide stable viscosity in the presence of extended heat, acid and shear conditions.

For processed meat applications, PURE-GEL® products provide excellent economic benefits including increased water-holding capacity, moisture management and improved yields at a reduced hydration temperature. In dairy applications, PURE-GEL® starches are utilized to suspend solids, enhance mouthfeel and provide a stable viscosity under refrigerated conditions.

PURE-GEL® products are easily hydrated in high-fat sauce systems and provide steam table stability for gravies and sauces. For thermally-processed fruit fillings, the low hot viscosity results in reduced back pressure and better fruit integrity. The correct starch can be selected from the product line depending upon desired characteristics and the processing conditions the product will undergo.

PURE-COTE® Coating/Film-Forming Starch
PURE-COTE® modified food starches are unique, low-viscosity starches that provide excellent film-forming and adhesive properties. They form clear, flexible films that are fast drying and flavor-free. They function as strong binders for seasonings on snacks and cereals and as smooth, glossy coating agents for confections and baked goods.

INSTANT PURE-COTE® Modified Food Starch
INSTANT PURE-COTE® modified starches are designed specifically for producing clear, flexible films without a cook-up step to hydrate the starch. Finished coatings are water soluble, clear and have good sheen. INSTANT PURE-COTE® works well in coatings for cereals, nuts, snacks and confectionery applications. Besides coatings, INSTANT PURE-COTE® can be used in a variety of food applications where film-forming characteristics are important.

PURE-SET® Thin-Boiling Starch
PURE-SET® food starches are modified to provide low viscosity during cooking. This low hot paste viscosity allows high-solids confectionery products to be easily deposited. PURE-SET® products can be cooked with sweeteners and water to a low moisture content without becoming too viscous. A choice of gel strength and texture also allows for use in other food applications such as cheese products which require strength for grating without loss of integrity. PURE-SET® products serve as an economical binder for emulsified meat products in a very price-competitive market.

INSCOSITY® Modified Food Starch
INSCOSITY® modified food starches hydrate easily in either hot or cold water without heating. They maintain a clean flavor and have ultra-smooth surface appearance with clarity and sheen. Freeze/thaw and steam table stability without syneresis are additional benefits of INSCOSITY® modified food starches.
