New ingredients that are relevant to innovation

Limagrain Ingredients presents PRESCO, a range of puffed cereals for all uses. Thanks to a patented process called PRESCO (PRESsure COoking) that uses pressure and steam, the whole grains are puffed in less than 30 seconds, preserving their flavour and nutritional qualities.

This unique process makes it possible to have different densities for a wide range of applications: breads and biscuits, salads, ready meals, dairy products ...

The PRESCO range offers a wide variety of cereals and grains, including soft wheat, durum wheat, maize, barley, rye, and rice, as well as ancient grains, including Khorosan (Kamut®) wheat, spelt, millet, quinoa, and sorghum.

Finally, six of them (soft wheat, spelt, Kamut®, millet, quinoa, rice) are available as organic options.

Barry Callebaut presents WholeFruit, a delicious fresh and fruity chocolate made from 100% cocoa fruit. While 70% of the fruit normally ends up as waste, WholeFruit is the product of the entire fruit: bean, skin (rich in nutrients), pulp, and fresh, fruity juice. The result is a range of high-quality ingredients that can be used in juices, smoothies, frozen desserts, bakery and pastry products, snacks – and, of course, chocolates.

Capfruit is expanding its Fruit’Elite “Fruits Secs” puree range with a Green Pistachio flavour. The careful selection of varieties and origins enables Capfruit to obtain an authentic 100% green pistachio purée without added sugars, colouring, flavours, or preservatives.

For the last 2 years, Algaia and H&F have worked on mixtures of pectins and alginates to determine the most effective combination in terms of ingredient (seaweed and fruit), extraction process, and formulation. They found that alginate and pectin work synergistically, providing better functionality and stability in bakery uses. The mixture especially works for fillings, toppings, pies, and cookies using fruits.
