Although many consumers are aware of the importance of flavor in their food products, many of them are unaware of the importance of texture.
Various food texturizing ingredients are available that add a variety of characteristics to food, such as consistency, mouthfeel and taste. They are used alone or in a blend to improve the properties of the end-product, providing a stable structure to the food and increasing its shelf-life.
