A new versatile clean label ingredient for Bakery, Confectionery and Drinks

Emsland Group presents their latest waxy potato development: Emwaxy® Spray 200.
The Emwaxy® Spray 200 fits perfectly with the rapid growing demand for clean label alternative ingredients for the food industry.  Emwaxy® Spray 200 is a clean label low DE starch derivative.

Based on high amylopectin potato starch, Emwaxy® Spray 200 has unique properties. Emwaxy® Spray 200 has excellent solubility and is not prone to retrogradation. Therefore it can be applied in high concentrations whilst staying stable. The high cohesiveness at high concentrations enables to apply Emwaxy® Spray 200 solution as food glue in many food applications. The product has good film forming characteristics and therefore it can be successfully applied as egg wash replacer on baked goods. Body and mouthfeel enhancement or partial sugar replacement are further examples of the possibilities, which Emwaxy® Spray 200 can offer.

• Easy to dissolve
• Clean label
• Stable in solution in high dosage
• Excellent film forming with high transparency and gloss
