Crispy and crunchy batters and breadings

Looking for that “just right” texture for a breaded chicken, fish or veggie? Trying to formulate a non-GMO, gluten-free version to duplicate the texture of a wheat-flour-based coating system? Breadings, batters and coatings add a whole new dimension to foods by adding texture, flavor and appearance—and yours needs to be delicious.

Each ingredient plays a unique and complementary role in delivering the perfect texture. Take advantage of our complete range of starches, dextrins, pulse proteins and flours, as well as applications expertise, to design the best system for your product.

Our pre-dusting starches help to keep batter and breading on meat and fish by improving the adhesion properties.


Get the right texture, great crisping and a smooth surface—without the extra sticking—with our clear-coating starches.
