Thanks to a heat treatment, the wheat flour acquires a number of functional properties that make it highly suitable as a coating. Predust, batters and tempuras are essential components during the production of coated food products such as meat, fish, cheese, potatoes, vegetables and plant-based products. They provide optimal adhesion and improve the crispiness of the crust.
Within our range of Flinn Coating we distinguish the following products:
- Predust: a predust is usually a coarse flour, sometimes combined with other ingredients. It is used dry as a functional aid in the coating of water-rich and fat-rich substrates. The use of a predust improves the adhesion and enhances the final yield.
- Batter: these flours and mixes ensure the adhesion between the substrate and the breadcrumbs. The batter functions as the 'glue' that ensures good adhesion even after production, freezing and preparation. We offer both pure heat-treated wheat flour (Clean Label) and tailor-made mixes as batter.
- Tempura: Ready-to-use functional mixes specially developed for tempura or Clear Coat applications.
Application; coated meat, fish, plant-based products, croquets and vegetables, like onion rings.
