CRISP COAT® UC is a starch-based crisping agent designed to impart a range of textural properties to battered and fried food products. CRISP COAT® UC is a specialty blend of high amylose corn starch and tapioca dextrin.
CRISP COAT® UC, when incorporated into a batter at low levels, imparts a smooth uniform appearance to the fried product and provides a firm crisp surface. In addition to the textural enhancement provided by CRISP COAT® UC to coated products, it also assists with maintaining a crispy texture during extended storage under heat lamps. Typically, products formulated with CRISP COAT® UC may yield up to 30 minutes or more of crispiness under heat lamp storage.
CRISP COAT® UC can be used in batters for coating a variety of fried products. Batters incorporating CRISP COAT® UC typically contain a combination of a flour (wheat or corn) and seasoning/spices. When preparing batters made with CRISP COAT® UC, it is important to keep the batter agitated at all times to prevent settling of solids. CRISP COAT UC will enhance the texture, crispness, and overall appearance of coated and fried products.
