Meet consumer demand for “natural,” clean label products without compromising on flavor, color, texture and performance. Designed specifically for light-colored applications with delicate flavors, NOVATION® Lumina functional native starches offer all the formulation functionality of modified starches, helping you create yogurts, puddings, fillings, dressings and sauces with the sensory experience consumers expect and the labels they want.
Designed for delicate applications
NOVATION Lumina functional native starches offer outstanding flavor release and neutral color, making them ideal texturizers for white or light-colored applications with more subtle flavors.
Performance of modified starches
Like modified starches, NOVATION Lumina functional native starches provide viscosity and gel strength to help you create creamy, smooth textures. These products also offer excellent freeze/thaw and shelf life stability and have a high process tolerance, ideal for sauces, alternative dairy and other products that undergo harsh processing conditions.
Labeled simply as “corn starch,” natural NOVATION Lumina functional native starches offer all the functionality of modified starches and support “natural” and “no artificial ingredients” claims. They are also non-GMO and gluten-free, and do not require allergen labeling.
*Manufacturers should consult regulations specific to all target markets. Of the countries that had provisions in place to regulate the term 'natural' in May 2019, these products meet criteria of a natural food ingredient in the UK, France, Ireland, and associated EU legislation, and the global ISO Technical Specification (ISO/TS 19657).
