Features & Benefits  |  Functionality  |  Applications  |  Packaging  |  Product Info

BriesSweet White Sorghum Extracts offer a gluten free solution to the challenge of browning cereals, crackers, snack foods, particulates, baked goods and other foods that are formulated gluten free. Enzymatically produced from the starchy heads of the grain, not the cane, of the sorghum plant, BriesSweet White Sorghum ingredients contain the same reducing sugars and amino acids that promote browning as malt extract, therefore, making it a gluten free alternate. A natural sweetener with large amounts of maltose, this innovative ingredient was originally developed by Briess for the production of gluten free beer. Using BriesSweet White Sorghum ingredients as a browning agents in foods greatly expands the capability of formulators to develop more visually eye appealing gluten free foods. BriesSweet Sorghum ingredients match the carbohydrate profile of malt extracts and have very similar characteristics such as moderate, long lasting sweetness, humectancy and medium viscosity. Call Briess today to learn how all-natural BriesSweet White Sorghum ingredients can help solve your formulating challenges and achieve label claims for many foods and beverages, gluten-free or otherwise.
