Achieve just-right batters and breadings to win consumers 

Looking for the perfect light and crispy coating for your battered products? Crunchy on the outside, yet juicy and succulent inside? The batter can either make or break your crispy fish fillet, crunchy chicken nugget or tasty prawn tempura. It creates a whole new dimension; adding an authentic look and feel, texture, flavour and colour, but it presents challenges too. Consumers want an even batter all over, with just the right crispness or crunch from the first bite to the last. Biting through the coating, they will be delighted with succulence, regardless whether the dish is served immediately or been sitting under a heat lamp for a while. Using our wide range of functional ingredients, Ingredion can help you achieve your batter and breading goals. We will make your products the best they can be. 

Designing your product with the right ingredients

Each ingredient plays a unique and complementary role in delivering the perfect texture. Our technical experts will guide you through the texture maze to find the ideal solution for your fish fillet or tempura batter. We can help you to:

  • Add the crunch to your product using texturizing solutions such as CRISP FILMTM and GELOSETM 80 starches
  • Boost your products’ crispness with specialty ingredients such as K-4484 and NATIONALTM 0280 dextrins
  • Ensure even adhesion to substrate without blow-off or flaking using an adhesion aid like BATTER BINDTM S starch
  • Create a range of appearances, from smooth to blistered, to suit your unique product  
  • Achieve optimal viscosity and suspension of solids with viscosifiers such as NATIONALTM 208 starch
