Features
Applications
BASIC textur is versatile in usage, preserves the natural taste of ingredients and convinces by its easy handling.
Fields of applications

Citrus fruits are gently dried after extracting the juice and oils. Citrus fibres from the inner white layer (also known as albedo) and water are the ingredients of BASIC textur. BASIC textur is resistant to acids and alcohol, amylase resistant, enriched with dietary fibres, low in calories, contains no additives, free of allergens and free of gluten, neutral in taste and can be versatily applied between -25°C and +220°C. Features that go especially well with soup and sauce applications and make your everyday work easier.

The ideal texture, a reduction of fat and the replacement of ingredients that are high in calories such as flour, starch or other thickeners is our commitment to a modern nutrition. The preparations are calorie-reduced, lighter and healthier without any loss of aroma or taste.
We intentionally want to change kitchen processes. Production using fresh ingredients with shorter preparation times meets the requirements of the chef by using fresh produce on one hand and the requirements of the customer on a healthy nutrition that is rich in vitamins on the other.
Our team of chefs and food technologists has made it their responsibility to use the properties of citrus fibres keeping these requirements in mind. Valuable raw material has gone through different levels of research and development.

The result is a purely plant-based, texturizing basic product with high nutritional value. It perfectly combines tradition and technologies of cooking with the demands on a modern cuisine and defines textur in a completely new way.
It is our intention to bring the easy handling to all kitchens and to all their daily applications. Based on our new basic component we can re-interpret every style of cuisine with a modern lightness.
