So, what is almidón de trigo modificado?

Almidón de trigo modificado, or modified wheat starch, is a common food ingredient used to improve the texture and consistency of many food products. This ingredient is derived from wheat starch that has been chemically or physically altered to enhance its thickening, binding, or gelling properties. Modified wheat starch is often used in foods such as soups, sauces, bakery products, and processed meats to improve their texture, stability, and mouthfeel. This versatile ingredient also offers benefits such as increased shelf life, improved freeze-thaw stability, and reduced cooking times. Despite its benefits, some people with gluten sensitivities may need to avoid products containing modified wheat starch.
