Following on from the successful launch of the Texture University quarterly webinar series in November, Module 2 aired on Tuesday 19 March, titled Formulating with Cook-up Starch Thickeners – Solutions Made Easy.
There is such a variety of thickeners to choose from, it is often difficult to know the most appropriate one to use. In this module we answer:
- How does the level of viscosity influence the thickener?
- Which is the best thickener to formulate with, when a product demands a high level of process tolerance?
- What influence do thickener properties have on the sensory characteristics of food?
- How can a thickening starch help to optimise shelf stability in a frozen product?
With a curriculum taught by scientists for scientists, Texture University, a part of Tate & Lyle’s TEXTURE-VANTAGE® Expert Systems, is the first starch-based scientific education program of its kind. Our scientists have a full curriculum of Texture University courses that will help you start from the basics and learn to tackle even the hardest formulation challenges. A new session is introduced quarterly and attendees will receive a certificate of completion at the end of each module.
