Grande Custom Ingredients Group developed a clean label solution to improve the texture of many different food products. Grande Bravo can enhance the texture of soups, sauces, salad dressings, gravies, dips, spreads, bakery items and more.
Grande Bravo provides water-holding capabilities, adding texture, viscosity and a creamy mouthfeel to these types of dairy-based products. In some applications, Grande Bravo can replace up to 50% of the fat in a food product while maintaining or, in some cases, enhancing the finished product.
