Crispy and crunchy batters and breadings

Looking for that “just right” texture for a batter and 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.  

Each ingredient plays a unique and complementary role in delivering the perfect texture. Ingredion offers a complete range of starches, dextrins, pulse proteins and flours and also provides application expertise to guide you in designing the best system for your project.

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