Introduction to MERIGEL® Starch
Also known as
MERIGEL Instant Starch, MERIGEL®, instant maize starch

Our MERIGEL® Starch line includes both non-GMO and traditional products produced from maize. These starches thicken when added to cold or warm water and are excellent texturing agents for cold processed and instant foods. Our range of MERIGEL® Starches provide a variety of product textures, from smooth, to short, to pulpy, depending on the requirement of the product. 

Our MERIGEL® starch range is suitable for use in sponge cakes, baked snacks, coated nuts, cereals, and cold-processed fillings, sauces, and dressings.

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 the foods and beverages they love with a label they can understand and trust.

MERIGEL® Starch is available globally
