So, what is modified manioc starch?

Modified manioc starch, also known as cassava starch, is a versatile and widely used ingredient derived from the roots of the cassava plant. This starch is obtained by processing the cassava roots to extract the starch granules, which are then modified through physical, chemical, or enzymatic processes to enhance their functionality. Modified manioc starch is valued for its thickening, binding, and stabilizing properties in a wide range of food applications, including baked goods, sauces, soups, and beverages. It is also popular in gluten-free and vegan products due to its natural and hypoallergenic nature. With its neutral flavor and white color, modified manioc starch is an excellent ingredient for improving the texture and quality of various food products.
