So, what is hydroxypropyl-di-starch glycerol?

Hydroxypropyl-di-starch glycerol is a modified starch commonly used as a food ingredient. It is derived from starch and chemically modified by adding hydroxypropyl groups to improve its performance in food processing. The resulting product has excellent water-binding properties, making it useful as a thickener and stabilizer in various food applications. Its glycerol content also improves the freeze-thaw stability of frozen foods such as ice cream. This ingredient is a versatile option for enhancing texture, stability, and shelf life in a wide range of food products.
