So, what is modified cassava starch?

Modified cassava starch is a popular food ingredient derived from the cassava root, a starchy tuber vegetable found in tropical regions. It is produced by chemically or physically altering the natural properties of cassava starch to improve its functional characteristics. This process can result in a starch that is more stable, has better texture, and can withstand high temperatures without breaking down. Modified cassava starch is commonly used as a thickener, stabilizer, or binder in a wide range of food products, including sauces, soups, baked goods, and processed meats. Additionally, it is a gluten-free and non-GMO alternative to other starches, making it a popular choice among consumers with dietary restrictions.
