Ulrick & Short Launches New Clean Label, Cold Swelling Starches

Ulrick & Short have expanded their Clean Label ingredient range which promise to solve problems for manufacturers in achieving stability and thickening in gentle factory processes.

The innovative ingredients provide the same functional properties and performance as a pregelatinized starch, without requiring high shear mixing.


The cold swelling products, named synergie L726 and synergie 77 can be applied to very gentle mixing processes without clumping, and therefore enabling the full functional performance of the starch. They have been physically processed to increase the starch particle size and porosity, making the product more dispersible, and easier to apply and process, all the while retaining the Clean Label status. Also, in keeping with the rest of their range, they are non-GM, vegan friendly and allergen free.

“This solves a real headache for a lot of manufacturers. We have seen time and time again where manufacturers experience difficulties with clumping and general lack of dispersibility when applying starches; this both wastes time and also ensures that manufacturers won’t get the best out of the ingredient.”

"Genuinely Innovative Ingredients"

Schroeter adds, “Previously, manufacturers would have to use high shear equipment to unlock the functionality of functional ingredients, potentially damaging the texture and quality of the finished product in the process. With synergie 77 and synergie L726 this is no longer necessary, that’s why they are genuinely innovative ingredients.”
