Penford’s new PenTech 8500 is a casein replacement ingredient


Centennial, Co. – Penford Food Ingredients has launched PenTech 8500, a casein replacement ingredient.

PenTech 8500 is a modified potato-based food starch that incorporates Penford’s new PenNovo technology.

The company says PenTech 8500 can reduce the use of rennet casein to 10 per cent in a standard imitation cheese formulation and still maintain superior melt, stretch and mouthfeel in cheese products.

PenTech 8500 also offers no flavour interference, firmness, enhanced water/oil stability, and has excellent shred and matt characteristics.

The company recommends it for pizza cheese, shredded cheese, sliced cheese and block cheese.
