Naturally Functional Flax: Formulating Clean-Label Foods for Today’s Consumer, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Share Article

In this free webinar, the featured speakers will discuss plant-based, clean-label and gluten-free trends in the food & beverage industry. They will highlight the relationship and differences between standard thickeners and finely milled flax meal powder, and discuss the key challenges of formulating with finely milled flax meal and how to overcome them. The presenters will also discuss finely milled flax meal powder in healthy products, its safety aspects and roles as a replacement for gluten and/or eggs in food and beverage formulations.

Finely milled flax meal, comprised of water-soluble polysaccharides (hydrocolloids), can offer several advantages over other gums and thickening agents — and can even be used as an egg replacement.

Natural hydrocolloids present an opportunity for manufacturers in ‘clean label’ product development. With their thickening, stabilizing, gelling, fat-replacing and binding qualities — naturally occurring, plant-based polymers can fulfil many of the same functions as commercial ingredients like xanthan, guar, acacia and cornstarch.

Finely milled flax meal, comprised of water-soluble polysaccharides (hydrocolloids), can offer several advantages over other gums and thickening agents — and can even be used as an egg replacement. It is vegan, non-allergenic, gluten free and non-GMO — making it perfect for use in clean label product formulations. Unique clean-label functionality delivers improvements to texture, freshness, nutrition and stability in various applications.

Join this webinar to hear experts from Bioriginal investigate clean-label product formulation trends and showcase how the functionality of finely milled flax meal powder can be leveraged in a variety of gluten-free bakery, batter and breading, pasta and meat-analogue applications to deliver differentiative textures, enable clean-label declarations and meet the demands of the market.

Join Tom Vierhile, VP Strategic Insights, North America, Innova Market Insights; and Rakesh Kapoor, PhD, Director of Science & Technology, Bioriginal Food & Science Corp., for the live webinar on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 at 11am EDT (4pm BST/UK).
