MERIGEL™ starches are made from corn and waxy maize and designed to thicken in water, providing excellent texturing agents for cold-processed or instant foods. They add texture to desserts, dressings, soups and fruit preparations.  MERIGEL™ starches also provide binding and expansion in cereals, snacks and crispy coatings.


MERIGEL™ cuts fat in chips and snacks 

Manufacturers of chips, crisps, snacks and crackers can move from the traditional frying process to an oven-baking process by using MERIGEL 300. Fat content is reduced without sacrificing taste or texture.
