SimPure Functional Starch

Functional Native Starches

SimpureSimple, yet powerful.

Whilst native starches are certainly label-friendly, they sometimes do not deliver the full functionality needed in certain formulations. This is where our SimPure® range of functional native starched comes in. SimPure® leverages the unique properties of a variety of botanical sources to address some of today's most important texturizing challenges. 

Our growing SimPure® portfolio includes corn, potato, and tapioca-based starches.  SimPure® label-friendly functional starches help address consumers' desire for simple ingredients and familiar labels, whilst at the same time giving manufacturers greater process tolerance, shelf life and storage stability.
