So, what is modified potatoes starch?

Modified potato starch is a versatile food ingredient that is derived from potatoes. It is a modified form of starch that has been chemically altered to improve its functionality and performance in food applications. This type of starch is known for its excellent thickening, binding, and emulsifying properties, making it an ideal ingredient for a wide range of food products. It is also highly stable and can withstand high temperatures, making it suitable for use in baked goods and other heat-processed foods. As a gluten-free alternative to wheat-based thickeners, modified potato starch is widely used in the food industry to enhance texture, increase shelf life, and improve overall quality.
