ULTRA-TEX® 3 is a high performance cold water swelling modified food starch derived from tapioca.
It exhibits many of the properties of a modified cook-up starch and possesses a very bland flavor profile with good mouth melt-away characteristics. ULTRA-TEX® 3 provides a very smooth, short, and glossy texture in a range of instant food applications.
It also imparts a rich creamy mouthfeel while possessing a very bland flavor profile. In addition, this product has improved tolerance to heating and acidic conditions compared to conventional pregelatinized tapioca starches.
A further advantage when using this product is the excellent textural stability it possesses, even in cold temperature or refrigerated storage conditions.
ULTRA-TEX 3 will develop viscosity and texture as soon as it comes into contact with cold or hot water. It is recommended that ULTRA-TEX 3 is dry blended with other ingredients particularly sugar, or dispersed in oil to aid its dispersion into water.
The viscosity of ULTRA-TEX 3 is stable at high temperatures particularly in neutral pH systems. Typical usage levels in liquid systems could be 2-5%.
