Add-Here™ 3200 is a line of hydrocolloids that replaces the texture and binding qualities needed to keep disparate ingredients together with significantly less sugar. Traditionally, sugar, honey or high fructose corn syrup are used for tying together ingredients like oats, shredded coconut, seeds, nuts and dried fruit into cereal clusters. Reduced sugar content in breakfast cereal and similar food products can potentially result in loss of taste and textural appeal when compared to that of fully sweetened products. Using these hydrocolloids can substitute the texture lost when sugar is removed. When used in binding syrups, it improves binding of particles through its film forming properties. Typical usage levels range from 5-20% of binding syrup, depending on the level of sugar reduction.
