Ingredion Launches PRECISA® 680 Starch for Yield Improvement in Cheese Products

Revolutionary starch to enable manufacturers to reduce costs in cheese products, Greek style yogurts, quark and cream cheese-type products, without compromising whey stream.

WESTCHESTER, Illinois, April 12, 2017 – Ingredion Incorporated, a leading global provider of ingredient solutions to diversified industries, today announced for the U.S. and Canada a revolutionary new starch solution – PRECISA® 680 starch – to enable cheese manufacturers to save costs, maintain texture and improve performance without compromising valuable whey streams. PRECISA® 680 starch is retained in the product, providing increased yield in cheese products, Greek style yogurts, quark and cream cheese-type products.

Adding PRECISA® 680 starch to milk at the onset of the manufacturing process, cheese manufacturers can increase yield by 8 to 10%. PRECISA® 680 starch can be used in cheese products, cream cheese-type products, flavored fresh cheeses, low-fat cheeses and cheese products. The modified food starch is based on waxy maize and is non-GMO.

“Manufacturers using the traditional cheese making process (whey separation) continue to look for ways to make high quality products for less, without compromising the valuable whey stream or textures familiar to consumers.” said Luc Bertram, Ingredion’s vice president of global wholesome and texture springboards. “This innovative solution is easy to incorporate into the traditional cheese manufacturing process and does not require any capital investment, creating opportunities for sales volume increases and access to new markets.”
