A NATURE-BASED PLATING AGENT THAT CARRIES MORE LIQUID THAN TRADITIONAL CARRIERS
N-ZORBIT™ 2144 plating agent cost-effectively transforms oil- and water- soluble liquids into homogenous and flowable powders
SINGAPORE, May 31, 2018 – Ingredion Incorporated, a leading global provider of ingredient solutions to diversified industries, today unveiled in Asia Pacific N-ZORBIT™ 2144 plating agent, a high-capacity carrier that allows manufacturers to economically transform a wide variety of both oil- and water-soluble liquids into powdered ingredients.
The ingredient is a next generation plating agent with a unique, porous structure that increases the surface area exposed to liquids, facilitating absorption. Due to the non-gelatinised and unique granular structure of the ingredient, it can be used to carry high-flavour concentrations that flow freely through processing equipment and mix evenly into food and beverage recipes.
The unique structure and composition of N-ZORBIT™ 2144 plating agent contributes to an optimal particle size that can deliver a plating capacity as high as 40 percent. This means 100 grams of N-ZORBIT™ 2144 can plate up to 70 grams of liquid, delivering far more than traditional carriers such as maltodextrin.
“Creating today’s on-trend foods and beverages means using a wide assortment of spices, seasonings, flavours and actives,” said Donna Brooks, Director, Global Business Development, Delivery Systems at Ingredion. “N-ZORBIT™ 2144 plating agent allows product developers and manufacturers to economically increase that variety, transforming a multitude of liquids into a powdered form.”
High plating capacity brings cost-in-use benefits while delivering the same amount of flavour with less use of carrier. N-ZORBIT™ 2144 plating agent can be used to deliver powdered versions of oil and water-based flavours and seasonings. It also adds thick honey, chocolate syrup and other viscous fluids to the range of ingredients that can be made into powders without the added expense of spray drying.
“With the launch of N-ZORBIT™ 2144 plating agent we are able to unlock new application opportunities for manufacturers”, said Lilian Tan, Marketing Manager, Texture and Delivery Systems, Asia Pacific. “Now, manufacturers can plate a wider range of actives at higher levels and more cost-effectively than traditional carriers.”
