The Maxi-Gel cook-up starch will help manufacturers maintain moisture by creating smooth textures in yoghurts, soups, sauces and dressings.

Tate & Lyle noted that the starches are one of the key ingredients used by the manufacturers for creating sugar-free cakes that do not crumble.

Using starches to deliver the right balance of taste and texture is often a complex formulating challenge in yoghurts, soups, sauces and dressings, the company added.
