Pectin is a kind of polysaccharide, and its composition includes two types of homopolysaccharide and heteropolysaccharide. They mostly exist in the cell wall and an inner layer of plants, and they are mostly found in citrus, lemon, grapefruit, and other peels. White to yellow powder, relative molecular weight is about 20000 ~ 400,000, and tasteless. It is more stable in acidic solution than in alkaline solution and is usually divided into high ester pectin and low ester pectin according to its degree of esterification. High ester pectin forms an irreversible gel in the range of soluble sugar content ≥60% and pH = 2.6 ～ 3.4. Part of the methyl ester of low-ester pectin is converted into a primary amide, which is not affected by sugar and acid, but it needs to combine with divalent ions such as calcium and magnesium to form a gel.
Maltodextrin is a low conversion product of starch, whose molar mass is between starch and starch sugar. Its raw materials are starchy corn, rice, etc., and it can also be refined starch, such as corn starch, wheat starch, cassava starch, and the like. The main component is dextrin and contains polysaccharides, tetrasaccharides or oligosaccharides with more than tetrasaccharides, and also contains a small amount of maltose and glucose.
Transglutaminase is an enzyme that promotes the cross-linking reaction between protein molecules.Transglutaminase can catalyze the same Cross-linking and polymerization between different protein molecules to improve and enhance the properties of food proteins, such as emulsification, gelation, viscosity and thermal stability.
Dietary supplements have performed strongly in the past few years, and according to Grand View Research, the global dietary supplement market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 7.8% by 2025. Changes in global consumer habits and increased health awareness are creating new opportunities for dietary supplement brands. In addition to common vitamins and minerals, plant ingredients, amino acids, and proteins are expected to grow.
Baked food as an ideal carrier of nutrients means that fortified foods will remain the main product of the industry and may gain momentum in the future. Among them, vitamins and minerals are typical nutrients because they are usually part of the flour system. According to the current trend of consumers advocating natural health, manufacturing natural nutritional supplements and reasonable addition in baked goods is the development trend of the baking industry.
In 2018, the global sports nutrition market totaled $ 15.7 billion. The American market is thriving, with Asia accounting for only 7.6%, but Asia ’s performance on the average annual growth rate is very eye-catching. The growth rate in the past 5 years and the next 5 years will be above 16%.
The powder type is the main type of sports nutrition products, accounting for 45%; protein bars/energy bars, gum-based confectionery and snacks rank second and third, respectively, accounting for 17% and 16%. Ready-to-drink products are becoming more and more popular, and their energy-efficient gels and Shot drinks, which are easy to eat and carry, are also growing rapidly.
The ProBinder™ MR20 is usually sprinkled on the piece of meat to be bonded. Sprinkle enough MR20 on both surfaces to form complete dust; The brush spreads the coating evenly. Alternatively, immerse the debris directly into the MR20. The ProBinder™ MR20 can also be mixed with 4 parts by weight of ice water to form a slurry to coat the meat. The slurry must be used within 20 minutes because the adhesion in the ProBinder™ MR20 decreases over time, sodium caseinate will be combined with itself.
The ProBinder™ MR20 contains sodium caseinate, maltodextrin, glutamine transaminase, etc. It is mainly used as a protein linker to immobilize protein components together. It includes sodium caseinate, a water-soluble milk protein, which helps to increase the bond strength. It is commonly used to two or more pieces of meat together and can be used to make a variety of shapes that would otherwise be difficult (or impossible) to produce by conventional means.
