So, what is amidon acétylé?

Amidon acétylé, also known as acetylated starch, is a modified starch derived from various plant sources such as corn, tapioca, and potatoes. It is created through a chemical process that involves the addition of acetic anhydride to regular starch. This modification enhances the properties of the starch, making it more stable and resistant to high temperatures and acidity. Acetylated starch is commonly used as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier in the food industry, particularly in processed foods like sauces, dressings, and baked goods. It can also improve the texture and appearance of food products and extend their shelf life.
