So, what is modifierad stärkelse?

Modifierad stärkelse is a Swedish term that refers to a modified starch commonly used in food production as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier. It is derived from various sources such as corn, potato, and tapioca, and is chemically modified to enhance its functional properties. The modification process alters the starch molecules' structure, resulting in improved heat and acid resistance, reduced viscosity, and increased solubility. Modifierad stärkelse is widely used in the food industry to improve the texture and consistency of products such as sauces, soups, bakery goods, and processed meats. It is a versatile ingredient that contributes to the quality and shelf life of many food products.
