"Roughing Up the Sweetener Market with EU Deregulation- will Starch Sweeteners Beat Sugar?"
"Potential Impact of TTIP with US on the European Starch Industry"
"Rise of Next Generation Clean Label Starches & Opportunities for Starch-Based Sweeteners Post 2017 Reforms"
With the talks on TTIP still ongoing, EU negotiators have been warned of the potentially damaging impact of increased market access for US maize, starch and ethanol industry. For EU agriculture and those facing additional competition what could be done to improve the EU position and more relevantly, how will this affect EU Starch Industry ?
With EU sweetener production quotas due to be abolished in October 2017, the key question that is being asked is which sweetener will be best placed to meet EU demand.
Lifting of quotas will also mean more opportunities for starch-based sweeteners with more competition from isoglucose made from corn or wheat.
It is predicted that isoglucose’s share of the EU sweetener market will rise from about 3.5 per cent to more than 10 per cent after 2017.
With current trends focused on health and wellness, Clean Label Starches are gaining traction on a global level, More food manufacturers are increasingly swapping out chemical modified starches for label friendly alternatives.
Recently Beneo launched their native rice starch – Remypure with no chemical modifications. In June ,Avebe also launched their clean label potato starch for meat applications while Ingredion continues to offer its broadest range of clean label starches to the market.
Still there is no clear definition on what constitutes clean label as it can mean different things to different consumers and food manufacturers.
GMO free ? No chemical modification ? organic certification and sourcing ?

Want to be among the first to discover the state-of-the-art technology to retain texture and flavour of fresh natural potatoes that ensures food safety, purity, cleanliness and hygiene?
If so, get hold of the pre-presentation abstract of paper on “Novel Potato Dehydrates Produced by Using the LARSSON Whirl Flash® Dryer” to be shared at CMT’s Starch World Europe on 24-25 October in Vienna.
In his delivery, Henk Jaap Meijer, Managing Director with Meijer Consult BV describes how Larsson Sweden’s latest innovative dryer can be used to produce novel potato dehydrates. The LARSSON Whirl Flash® dryer is specially designed for continuous drying of filter cakes, slurries, pasteous and fibrous products. Unlike other comparable dryer types on the market the LARSSON Whirl Flash® Dryer is ideal for both vegetable- and animal-based proteins and other more difficult products that require gentle drying. Backmixing is rarely needed but optional in case this step adds features to a product.

Manufacturers are now able to claim a “lower blood glucose rise” when using non-digestible carbohydrates as sugar replacers, following the publication of a new law by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
The claim, published in the EU Official Journal, states that “… because non-digestible carbohydrates are resistant to hydrolysis and absorption in the small intestine, and therefore do to not contribute to postprandial (post-meal) glycaemia.”
Olygoses’ oligosaccharide, Roquette’s wheat and corn starch-sourced fibre or chicory root fibres produced by Beneo-Orafti, Sensus or Cosucra-Groupe Warcoing will be able to take advantage of the glycaemic control claim. However, they must use the approved wording: “Consumption of (food product) containing (name of ingredient) instead of sugar, induces a lower blood glucose rise after their consumption compared to sugar-containing (food product)”.
In addition, to satisfy the conditions of the claim, 30 percent of total sugar needs to be replaced with non-digestible carbohydrates.
Beneo has said they have been in contact with manufacturers interested in using the new claim for its inulin and oligofructose ingredients. And while the majority of interest comes from manufacturers of products with a ‘healthy’ positioning, even manufacturers of indulgent products are starting to seriously look into sugar reduction. The company highlighted desserts, ice cream, breakfast cereals, beverages and snacks as the categories with the biggest potential for capitalising on the claim.
Sensus belives that the European market is ripe for products with low/no/reduced glycaemic response sell. Mintel GNPD data showed the number of product introductions with this positioning grew by 17 percent between 2010 and 2015, with inulin-containing low/no/reduced glycaemic products up by 37 percent.
Beneo is confident consumers are more interested in carbs with a low score on the Glycaemic Index (GI), which ranks foods according to their impact on blood sugar levels, and states that consumer research shows that consumers are starting to differentiate between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ carbohydrates, similar to what we saw happen to fats a couple of years ago.
