High protein NPD and the role for hydrocolloids

16 Jul 2019 --- CP Kelco notes that there is a major trend towards protein fortification, but this presents new technical challenges for product developers. “One of the key trends that we see happening right now relates to alternative proteins beyond soy, including pulse, oat and potato. So one of the issues relating to stabilizing these types of products relates to solubility in applications, as well as issues with mouthfeel. If not done correctly, it could lead to issues with mouthfeel, quality issues,” notes Kyle Bailey of CP Kelco. Beverage concepts featuring stabilizing systems included a cocktail with fruit preps stabilized with pectin, with orange pieces suspended through the use of gellan gum. Another cocktail is creatively stabilized with gellan gum, so a dual phase can be created in the beverage.
