PB Leiner announces a new era in texturizing solutions

Vilvoorde, November 28 – PB Leiner sets off for the Food ingredients Europe trade fair to reveal TEXTURA™, a next generation range of texturizers. The first product in the range, TEXTURA™ Tempo Ready, has been nominated for the Food Innovation Awards 2019, because of its time saving properties and unseen versatility.

TEXTURA Tempo Ready is a premium texturizer, for which there is no equivalent on the market. It is a 100% pure gelatin that requires much less handling (no high sheer required, a very broad temperature range, no reagents needed, etc.), and it saves producers and home consumers alike up to 50% of their time.

Furthermore, TEXTURA™ is 100% natural, gluten-free, and virtually universally body-tolerant. The fact that no heat is required not only implies significant energy-saving costs, it also makes the product safe to use for children. In addition, cold-processing opens up opportunities for increased nutritional value in applications: all the goodness of vitamins can be preserved with TEXTURA™.

The patent-pending formula for TEXTURA™ Tempo Ready was developed by PB Leiner’s Research & Development team. Claudio Jacomassi, Senior Vice President Technology and Development: “We have been able to build on over 100 years of experience and craftsmanship in gelatin, combined with state-of-the-art technology. Throw in the determination of the entire team, and the result is an amazing product with great potential.”

“With TEXTURA™, we are looking to open new market segments, such as food service, for example. We are moreover developing the range to fit the broadest scope of applications and benefits,” explains Wim Poot, Executive Vice President of PB Leiner. “It is our vision to offer our customers added value, convenience, and simplicity on all levels. That is why our tagline is ‘The Clear Solution’. This new range fits perfectly within that ambition: as far as solutions go, they don’t come much clearer than TEXTURA™.”
