Modified Starch

Vegetable starch can be derived from various plants, such as tapioca, wheat, corn and potatoes. The properties of starch change when they have been modified.
For example, starch can become heat resistant or stay pliable even when it is refrigerated or frozen. Glico Nutrition has several different modified starch products for specific food uses.
