So, what is pregelatinized starch?

Pregelatinized starch is a modified form of starch that has undergone a heating and drying process to create a powder that readily dissolves in cold water. This versatile ingredient is commonly used as a thickening agent in foods, such as soups, sauces, and gravies, but can also be found in baked goods and snack foods. Pregelatinized starch can improve the texture and consistency of food products while also providing added shelf stability. It is a gluten-free alternative to other thickeners and can be sourced from a variety of plant sources, including corn, potato, and tapioca.
