Texture

Equally important as flavor to a taste experience are texture and mouthfeel. The succulence of prepared meats or the softness of cookies through their shelf-life—these are qualities that define our food and beverage experiences, and ones that can always be improved.

Aware that today’s consumers are actively choosing products with ingredient legends they recognize, Florida Food Products created Fibercolloids™—our patented natural fibers that provide clean label textures. Sourced from vegetables and fruit, our natural texture solutions can replace undesirable hydrocolloids.

Source of clean label texture and fiber

As the demand for products free of texture-providing common allergens-including egg and gluten-continues to grow, formulators are increasingly seeking natural alternatives. These ingredients are typically responsible for thickening and gelling in products, and are often replaced or complemented by hydrocolloids like xanthan gum or gelatin. But with consumer pressure to remove both allergens and unfamiliar ingredients from product labels, formulators have struggled to find a suitable replacement that meets both demands.

Our texture products—FiberGel LC® and TexDry LC®—naturally have the following benefits for application categories across the industry:

  • Gel forming
  • Improved binding and emulsification
  • Egg, gluten, soy, and phosphate replacement
  • Reduced purge and moisture migration
  • Freeze thaw stability
  • Viscosity enhancement
  • Thermostability
  • Suitable for vegan products
