So, what is alkaline treated starch?

Alkaline treated starch is a common food ingredient that is produced by treating starch with an alkaline solution. This process alters the chemical structure of the starch, resulting in improved functionality for use in food manufacturing. Alkaline treated starch is often used as a thickener, stabilizer, and gelling agent in various food products, including bakery items, sauces, and soups. It offers several benefits over untreated starch, such as increased viscosity, improved stability, and enhanced texture. Due to its versatility and ease of use, alkaline treated starch has become a popular ingredient among food manufacturers.
