So, what is acid treated starch?

Acid treated starch is a modified form of starch that has undergone chemical treatment with acid to create functional properties. This process alters the starch molecules, resulting in a more stable and heat-resistant product. Acid treated starch is used as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier in food products such as soups, sauces, and dressings. Due to its highly adhesive nature, it's also used as a binding agent in meat products. Additionally, acid-treated starch offers improved texture and shelf life in baked goods, making it a popular ingredient in the bakery industry.
