Non-GMO native corn starch

Novation Indulge 2940 starch claims to be the first line of non-GMO functional native corn starches. These clean label texturizers provide a unique texture for gelling and co-texturizing for popular dairy and alternative dairy products and desserts. It enables a preferred “corn starch” label, which is highly recognized and more accepted by consumers globally than gelatin, carrageenan and other common texturants. The new starch also provides cost stabilization and potential improved cost-in-use thanks to the ingredient’s reliable supply and local reach.
