We take it seriously to ensure the safety of food given to children. At the same time, we realize how nutritional diets help boost children’s health and development. Well-nutritional balance and food safety are necessities for baby foods because they have profound effects on children’s development. Thus, safe ingredients are the prime obligation in baby food formulations requiring strict quality standards.
To ensure food safety for children, the European Commission has set a limit on the maximum amount of chlorate residue at 10 ppb for all kinds of baby foods. Accordingly, SMS offers a functional starch solution, Tapioca Starch-LPC, with superior performance in texturizing and thickening while containing a very low chlorate level in compliance with the European standards. Tapioca Starch-LPC can be applied to various baby food applications including snacks, baked goods, soup, and sauce ensuring consumers’ trust in a natural and clean label ingredient.
