GPC Showcases Food Science Student Competition Winner at IFT’16

Grain Processing Corporation is proud to announce an exciting collaboration with Iowa State University that provided food science students a hands on product-development learning experience. The GPC Ingredient Application Challenge required student teams to conceptualize and execute a product demo featuring GPC’s premier MALTRIN® maltodextrins and specialty starches. The six-week challenge culminated at a finale event held on-campus late March. Judging criteria included appropriate use of industrial ingredients, formulation details and what was learned from the process, creativity, presentation and, of course, taste.

The winning appetizer concept from the GPC Ingredient Application Challenge will be showcased at IFT’16. The winner – a Coconut Curry Chicken Rice Cup – features PURE-GEL® modified starch in the filling for stabilized viscosity. PURE-GEL® starches provide superior stability in refrigeration, freeze/thaw, high heat, acid and shear conditions.

A second entry from the challenge will also be featured to demonstrate the coating properties of INSTANT PURE-COTE® film-forming starch. These Chickpea Fries will be accompanied by a Sriracha-pineapple dipping sauce.

Toast the tasty appetizers with a Mocktail utilizing MALTRIN QD® (quick dispersing) maltodextrin. This premium, agglomerated maltodextrin quickly disperses to add body and build mouthfeel in the beverage.
