So, what is distarch phosphate?

Distarch phosphate is a modified food starch that is widely used as a thickening and stabilizing agent in various food products. It is a white, odorless, and tasteless powder that is derived from corn or tapioca starch. The modification process involves phosphorylation, which enhances its stability and tolerance to heat, acid, and shear. Distarch phosphate is commonly found in processed foods such as soups, sauces, gravies, and baked goods. It is an ideal ingredient for manufacturers who seek to improve the texture, mouthfeel, and shelf life of their products while maintaining a clean label.
