04 Sep 2017 --- Ingredion Inc. has now unveiled in the US and Canada its N-ZORBIT 2144 plating agent, a high-capacity carrier that allows manufacturers to economically transform a wide variety of both oil- and water-soluble liquids into powdered ingredients.

Following on from its EMEA (European, the Middle East and Africa) launch in July, Ingredion’s new plating agent, which unlocks new application opportunities for manufacturers, is now introduced in the US and Canadian market. 

According to Ingredion, the nature-based plating agent carries more liquid than traditional carriers and is described as the “next generation” plating agent with a unique, porous structure that increases the surface area exposed to liquids, facilitating absorption. 

Due to the non-gelatinized and unique granular structure of the ingredient, it can be used to carry high-flavor concentrations that flow freely through processing equipment and mix evenly into food and beverage recipes.

The unique structure and composition of N-ZORBIT 2144 plating agent contribute to an optimal particle size and low bulk density that can deliver a plating capacity as high as 40 percent. This means 100 grams of N-ZORBIT 2144 can plate up to 70 grams of liquid, delivering far more than traditional carriers such as maltodextrin.

“Creating today’s on-trend foods and beverages means using a wide assortment of spices, seasonings, flavors and actives,” says Donna Brooks, director of global business development, Delivery Systems at Ingredion. 

“N-ZORBIT 2144 plating agent allows product developers and manufacturers to economically increase that variety, transforming a multitude of liquids into a powdered form.”

High plating capacity brings cost-in-use benefits while delivering the same amount of flavor with less use of a carrier. N-ZORBIT 2144 plating agent can be used to deliver powdered versions of oil and water-based flavors and seasonings. 

It also adds thick honey, chocolate syrup and other viscous fluids to the range of ingredients that can be made into powders without the added expense of spray drying.

“With the launch of N-ZORBIT 2144 plating agent we are able to unlock new application opportunities for manufacturers,” says Agnes Lapinska, senior marketing manager in the US and Canada. 

“Now, manufacturers can plate a wider range of actives at higher oil load levels, more cost effectively than traditional carriers,” Lapinska says.

Lapinska told FoodIngredientsFirst: “Now with the same ingredient, we can plate both oil and water soluble materials. Plating refers to the physical blending of liquid substances onto a solid carrier to create a free-flowing powder. With N-ZORBIT 2144 plating agent, for example, we can take black pepper oil and transform it into a flowable powder used for seasoning blends in instant noodle seasoning mixes. Or with water soluble, difficult to spray dry materials such as honey, we can transform it into a free-flowing powder, perfect for dry rubs.”

“N-ZORBIT 2144 plating agent is now available in North America and EMEA, and we do have plans to make the ingredient available to manufacturers in other regions moving forward,” she adds.
