Presentation: Emerging and Applied Clean Label Starch Technologies

FEATURED SPEAKER: Sakharam K. Patil, president, S. K. Patil & Associates, Inc.

2013 Clean Label Conference Presentation Description: Starch has long played a crucial role in food acceptability. Historically, modified starches were developed to help manufacturers answer consumer demands for economical, yet superior textured products. As attention turns to “pantry-friendly” labels, momentous growth is expected in the use of simply labeled, yet sophisticated starches. Dr. Sakharam Patil’s presentation discusses the current and emerging technologies behind physically and enzymatically altered starches offering clean label opportunities. Practical advice on applications and evaluation techniques will be provided.
