PRODUCT DATA SHEET : ULTRA-TEX


4

________________________________________________________________________________
Description: Pregelatinised, chemically modified food starch refined from waxy maize.
Appearance: Fine white/creamy powder.
Label declaration recommendation: Modified Starch
EU Classification: E1442
Applications: ULTRA-TEX 4 is a high performance, cold water swelling modified waxy maize based food starch. It imparts a
rich, creamy mouthfeel while providing a short, smooth heavy bodied texture. ULTRA-TEX 4 is recommended wherever the
textural characteristics of a premium cook up starch are required without cooking. However, it is extremely versatile as it
promotes the convenience of providing instant viscosity but it will also withstand high shear or high temperature conditions.
ULTRA-TEX 4 has excellent freeze-thaw stability.
Applications include: cold processed salad dressings and emulsified sauces; dry mix sauces and gravies; microwave sauces;
cold or hot processed fruit pie fillings; chilled and frozen applications.
Usage information: ULTRA-TEX 4 will develop viscosity and texture as soon as it comes into contact with cold or hot water. It
is recommended that ULTRA-TEX 4 is dry blended with other ingredients particularly sugar, or dispersed in oil to aid its
dispersion into water. The viscosity of ULTRA-TEX 4 is stable at high temperatures in both neutral and acid systems (pH=3).
Typical usage levels in liquid systems could be 2-5%.
Packaging: 50 lb multiply paper sacks
Bag labelling includes batch code and unique bag number, label declaration and best before date.
Delivery format:
Sold in pallet loads, smaller quantities available from distributors.
40 bags per pallet, stretch wrapped with bottom sheet
Pallet type: Blue chep (1200 x 1000 cm); wood; returnable
Unit pallet weight: 907 kg
Storage and handling: Store in a clean, dry, well-ventilated warehouse at ambient temperature and away from odorous
materials. Ideal storage conditions are 10-25C and < 65% relative humidity. Handle sensibly to minimise the formation of dust
and the build up of static electricity.
Shelf life: 24 months from date of manufacture if stored correctly. Best before dates printed on each bag.
Safety data: While not regarded as "Hazardous", food starches such as ULTRA-TEX 4 are fine organic powders and, as such,
they can give rise to a nuisance dust which has the potential to cause a dust explosion. ULTRA-TEX 4 has been produced in
accordance with all relevant EU, local and national legislation and in compliance with the required standards for food safety and
hygiene. An official Safety Data Sheet is available on request.

Features of ULTRA-TEX
4

Benefits to the user &/or consumer

Cold water swelling since starch granules are


intact

Highly functional instant starch with significantly better process


tolerance than traditional pregelatinised starches. ULTRA-TEX 4
provides the final viscosity in finished products similar to that of
premium cook-up starches.

Fine powder

Hydrates quickly to produce a smooth, short textured product with


high gloss/sheen which promotes a good appearance in the
finished product. It is recommended to dry blend ULTRA-TEX 4
with sugar or even better to disperse in oil in order to delay its
hydration thereby aiding its dispersion directly into water.

Good process tolerance

In some applications ULTRA-TEX 4 requires high energy


processing, such as homogenising or microwave cooking to fully
hydrate the starch and achieve maximum viscosity. Offers better
process and bake stability over ULTRA-TEX 2 or INSTANT
CLEARJEL E.

Excellent freeze-thaw stability

Little/no tendency to set to a gel or to exhibit syneresis; good


tolerance to varying cold storage conditions.

Applications:
ULTRA-TEX 4 is highly recommended wherever an instant starch is required to perform in harsh processing conditions.
Cold processed salad dressings or emulsified sauces: An ideal application for ULTRA-TEX 4 is the preparation of instant salad dressings
or emulsified sauces. ULTRA-TEX 4 has excellent resistance to heat, acid and shear therefore ideally suited to withstand the shear
encountered during homogenisation such low pH products. Typical usage levels will depend on oil content and desired viscosity but generally 26% is recommended. In many cases up to 10% less starch can be used compared to conventional starches to achieve the same viscosity in
these applications.
Fruit pie fillings: Since ULTRA-TEX 4 is particularly resistant to heat and acid, it is recommended for preventing boilout in fruit pie fillings during baking.
Microwaveable sauces: ULTRA-TEX 4 can be used at 2-4% as an excellent viscosity builder in these applications
due to its shear tolerance. Since it hydrates with either cold or hot water, viscosity will build quicker than witha cook-up
starch and therefore eliminate the hassle involved in stirring dry mix microwaveable sauces during heating as the cookup starch could sediment out initially. ULTRA-TEX 4 creates rich, thick and creamy textures.
Dry mixes sauces and gravies: ULTRA-TEX 4 is used in these sauces if extra process or cold storage stability is
required over the traditional pregelatinised starches or ULTRA- TEX 2. However, ULTRA-TEX 4 offers more
premium product by imparting a richer, creamier texture.
There is a wide range of specific application formulations available for this product. Please contact your local National Starch office
which has access to the National Starch Global Recipe Database.
