Functional wheat starches replace titanium dioxide
As EFSA no longer considers the white pigment titanium dioxide (E 171) to be safe, it won’t be allowed to be used in foods from 2022 onwards, according to EU regulations. Loryma's ingredient portfolio includes two wheat starches that can be used to replace this soon to be banned additive. The native small-grain starch, Lory® Starch Iris, optimizes the appearance of dry or cold applications, whereas the resistant wheat starch, Lory® Starch Elara, is suitable for applications that contain water and are heated.
