So, what is muunneltu maissitärkkelys?

Muunneltu maissitärkkelys is a Finnish term for modified corn starch. It is a common food ingredient used as a thickener, stabilizer, or emulsifier in various applications such as soups, sauces, desserts, and baked goods. Modified corn starch is made by treating corn starch with various chemicals to alter its properties, making it more heat-stable and resistant to breakdown during processing. This makes it a valuable ingredient for creating smooth textures and preventing separation in food products. Despite some controversies surrounding its safety, modified corn starch remains widely used in the food industry due to its versatility and effectiveness in enhancing food quality.
