Batters

We understand the complexity of formulating customised batters

Batters are an integral part of coating systems, formulated to work with other components such as Marinades, Predusts, Breadings or Seasoning Blends. This ensures the consistent, superior taste, texture, appearance and aroma of products.

Our Formulated Batters minimise the effects of variations in substrates and other ingredients.

Meat, poultry, vegetables, seafood and other organic substrates can vary widely in moisture level, fat and protein content. The degree of denaturisation, surface irregularities and variations in the expansion and type of protein may also come into play.

The appropriate Batters can help offset the effects of processing variables such as line speed, age and brand of processing machinery, water quality, set-up time, the method of reconstitution used and the amount of Breading pick-up. They can increase yields and also provide a way to differentiate products on the basis of flavour, texture and appearance.

We offer a range of adhesive, concentrated and tempura batters which can be customised to meet your exact requirements.

Adhesion Batters

Adhesion Batters are specially formulated to adhere to an outer coating such as a Breading to the surface of a substrate. Nowhere in the food coatings industry is consistent performance more critical.

adhesionbattersThey:

  • Provide a cohesive layer between substrate and Breadings
  • Impart flavour, texture and colour to foods
  • Help control pick-up of Breadings
  • Help prevent surface voids through loss of Breadings
  • Reduce crumb fall-off, which extends the life of fryer oil

Coating Batters

A Batter is a blend of flours and various other components which may include starches, milk, eggs, spices, raising agents, stabilisers and other ingredients. Batters contain ingredients that enhance processing performance, improve functionality or add desirable characteristics.

coatingbattersThey:

  • Provide a protective outer coating
  • Impart flavour, including complex or exotic flavour systems
  • Impart colour, ranging from bright yellow to golden brown
  • Provide texture, ranging from cake-like to crisp and crunchy
  • Allow foods to be hand held
  • Can be oven or fryer reconstituted

Tempura Batters

Tempura batters are often a blend of quality flours, egg and raising agents. There are many varieties ranging from traditional `Chip Shop’ style to light and crisp to systems suitable for coating fish, chicken, cheese and vegetables.

  • Provide a protective outer coating
  • Impart flavour, including complex or exotic flavour systems
  • Impart colour, ranging from bright yellow to golden brown
  • Provides a light, crisp and bubbly texture
  • Allow foods to be hand held
  • Can be oven or fryer reconstituted

Speciality Batters

dprcialtybattersThese are groups of Batters which have been specially formulated for a specific application. We offer a concentrated batter which results in less cost in use.

It also includes customised clear coat which are thin, translucent batters which form a “shell” around the product providing maximum texture with minimum pick-up and still allows you to see the substrate.

Other functional systems are also available which address issues like crumb retention, oil pick-up and product integrity in the hot display cabinet.

Gluten Controlled Products

Our gluten controlled products include quality pre-dusts, adhesion and tempura batters.

We take great pride in working closely with customers to ascertain their exact needs and requirements. Our team of technologists create bespoke solutions that not only deliver the required attributes and allergen control but can offer on site processing and application advice.
