Did you know?

  • Unmodified starches are used primarily as thickening agents and binders. They are also sold to food packers for use by consumers in home baking.
  • Modified starches remain stable at many temperatures, allowing foods to be frozen and then thawed without losing consistency and taste. This makes modified starches ideal for frozen and instant foods.
