So, what is muunnettua tärkkelystä?

Muunnettua tärkkelystä is a Finnish term that translates to "modified starch" in English. This food ingredient is commonly derived from corn, potato, or tapioca and undergoes a chemical process to alter its natural properties, resulting in improved texture and stability when used as a thickening or binding agent in various food products. It has a neutral taste and can be found in a variety of packaged goods such as soups, sauces, and baked goods. Modified starch also has non-food applications, including its use in paper manufacturing and textile production.
