CLARIA® Functional Clean-Label Starches labels simply as starch yet perform similarly to modified starches.
Tate & Lyle’s line of CLARIA® Functional Clean-Label Starches empowers manufacturers to meet increased consumer demand for cleaner labels enabling formulations with similar functionality to a modified food starch. Globally, consumers are demanding convenient, great tasting foods that have recognisable ingredients on the label. In fact, one-in-four new products today is launched with “cleaner-label” claims. All CLARIA® Functional Clean-label Starch products are certified as non-GMO.
At Tate & Lyle, our texturants range now offers a comprehensive array of Non-GMO offerings for all regions, providing our customers with choices to fit their needs. Our non-GMO ingredients offer the same functionality as their traditional counterparts without compromising on taste or texture, meaning you can offer your consumers everything they’re looking for in the foods and beverages they love.
CLARIA® Functional Clean-Label Starches use CLARIA® technology, a proprietary technology that has been shown to provide improved sensory attributes (neutral colour) vs. other functional clean-label starches.
Coupled with Tate & Lyle’s commitment to partnership and ingredient innovation, CLARIA® Functional Clean-Label Starches provide manufacturers the opportunity to co-create the next generation of cleaner-label products.
CLARIA® G – our innovative clean-label starch will soon be even more sustainable
CLARIA® G is a non-GM, European- produced evolution of our CLARIA® Functional Clean-Label Starch range, with a sustainability advantage.

Among the outstanding characteristics of CLARIA® TOP-GEL starch is its ability to thicken and set to a gel quickly using room temperature water. The gel strength of the starch exceeds that of other instant maize starches. Gels made with this starch, unlike most gelling agents, will resist flow when exposed to high heat. They are heat stable, retaining form and firmness, even when held at oven temperatures.
This starch can be used conventionally as an “instant” starch in applications to form gels at room temperature. It can be used in high moisture desserts to allow removal from moulds within short time frames. In cold batters, it suspends fruit pieces, nuts and fillings before and during baking. Cookie doughs exhibit improves machinability during processing and the starch controls spread and symmetry during baking. For bakery fillings, the starch provides a resistance to flow and reduces boil out during baking. In low moisture confections, this starch provides extrusion consistency and delivers gelled texture without high temperature cooking. It can also be used in low moisture ready-to-serve icings; it reacts with fructose sweeteners to form the finished set in the frosting. It is also suitable for microwave preparations where it can be used at reduced levels as a thickener to suspend flavours, colours, spices and other dry ingredients.
