So, what is risstärkelse?

Risstärkelse, also known as rice starch, is a versatile ingredient derived from rice grains. This fine white powder is odorless and tasteless, making it a popular choice for thickening sauces, soups, and gravies. Its high starch content and lack of gluten also make it a great alternative to wheat flour for those with gluten sensitivities. Risstärkelse is often used in the production of processed foods, such as noodles, snacks, and baked goods, to improve their texture and stability. Additionally, it can be used in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals for its binding properties.
