So, what is starch-modified?

Starch-modified is a versatile food ingredient that has undergone a chemical process to enhance its functional properties. This process alters the molecular structure of the starch, resulting in improved solubility, viscosity, and stability in food products. Starch-modified is commonly used as a thickener, emulsifier, or stabilizer in a wide range of food applications, including soups, sauces, gravies, dressings, and baked goods. Its ability to enhance texture, improve mouthfeel, and provide a smooth, creamy consistency make it a popular choice for food manufacturers looking to create high-quality, consistent products. Additionally, starch-modified is often preferred by consumers as it is gluten-free and can provide a healthier alternative to other thickeners or stabilizers.
