Grain Processing Corporation “Shakes” Things Up

Dietary beverages come in many forms including weight loss shakes, meal replacement smoothies, and protein drinks, just to name a few. Ultimately, these drinks are all designed with the same goal in mind: to provide nutrition in a form that is easy to prepare as well as to consume.

While these drinks share the same goal of being convenient vehicles for desired nutrition, they also share similar formulation challenges. Vitamins and minerals often leave an unwanted mouthfeel and off notes, and their dispersibility may be a hurdle. Although nutrition is a key focus in this segment, only recently have these drinks begun to address fiber recommendations.

GPC’s line of MALTRIN QD® (quickly dispersible) maltodextrins and corn syrup solids,
INSCOSITY® food starch-modified and TruBran® corn bran are ideal ingredients for these types of beverage systems.

MALTRIN® carbohydrates provide a clean flavor profile while moderating sweetness, aid in the dispersion of protein and improve mouthfeel and body. The low osmolality of MALTRIN® products in solution make them ideal carbohydrate sources. MALTRIN QD® maltodextrins are superior ingredients in dry mixes. They quickly disperse into cold solutions to carry other ingredients as well as provide easily digestible carbohydrates.

Fiber is often overlooked in nutritional beverages. TruBran® corn bran is an easy addition for increasing fiber levels to enhance the nutritional profile. TruBran® corn bran is an insoluble fiber with bland flavor and a light brown color that easily mixes into dry powders.

INSCOSITY® starches are a series of cold water swelling starches that can be used at low levels to improve the consistency, body and mouthfeel of beverages.

So go ahead and “shake up” your formulation with GPC ingredients. Contact us today!
