A “unique” starch for unique situations… PURE-DENT® B730 Absorbent Starch

Does your formulation include ingredients that are oily, sticky or highly viscous, requiring extra attention and handling in your manufacturing process? Materials that are difficult to work with may benefit from being combined with PURE-DENT® B730 modified food starch. PURE-DENT® B730 is a cornstarch designed specifically to have an increased surface area and high absorbency rates to help processors solve some of their unique and even “sticky” situations.

With PURE-DENT® B730 modified food starch’s unique physical characteristics, the starch granule is able to carry both aqueous and non-aqueous substances while maintaining free-flowing powder characteristics making it ideal for plating applications. Plating refers to the dry blending of substances onto a carrier to create a free-flowing powder containing an even distribution of the substance. Plating often helps processors carry oily, sticky or highly viscous ingredients to ensure proper dispersion and blending in a finished product.

A wide array of ingredients can be plated using PURE-DENT® B730 starch. For many materials tested, 33 percent can be added to 67 percent PURE-DENT® B730 starch (or approximately a 50 percent load). Ingredients such as oleoresins, chocolate, peanut butter, honey, essential oils, propylene glycol and lecithin can all be successfully plated onto PURE-DENT® B730 modified food starch.

Furthermore, the plating process using this starch is simple enough it can even be executed using bench-top equipment such as a planetary stand mixer. A few minutes are all that is typically needed to achieve desired results.

PURE-DENT® B730 starch is not a pregelatinized starch, making it essentially insoluble in water. Thanks to this insolubility, aqueous materials such as honey, can be plated to higher loads where alternative plating substrates, such as maltodextrin, fail because they are water-soluble.
