Innovative Predust Systems

Improve Adhesion, Moisture Control and Texture in your Finished Product with AFS’ Predust Systems

Predusts are critical components to any batter and breaded food product.  They are the primary interface between the substrate and coating and these systems play a key role in optimizing coating adhesion.  Predusts also play a vital role in determining the texture of both the substrate and the coating after cooking and/or re-heating.  They help prevent moisture from migrating into the coatings, thus keeping the substrate moist and the coating crispy.  Predusts can also be used to incorporate flavor into finished products.

AFS ® offers predust systems for various substrates such as chicken, pork, beef, seafood, vegetables and more.  Each predust is designed based on the natural characteristics of the substrate as well as the cooking process and reconstitution method.

Achieving the right balance of flavor and texture is essential to developing successful products. Our expert culinary and food science team is ready to help develop a customized ingredient system for your food challenge.
