So, what is amidi?

Amidi, also known as modified starch, is a versatile food ingredient widely used in the food industry as a thickening, binding, and stabilizing agent. It is made by physically, chemically, or enzymatically altering the starch molecule to enhance its functional properties. Amidi improves the texture, consistency, and appearance of food products, and can also enhance their shelf life. This ingredient is commonly used in a variety of food products such as sauces, soups, dressings, baked goods, and confectionery items. Amidi is a gluten-free and non-allergenic ingredient, making it a popular choice for individuals with dietary restrictions.
