Derived from sources such as maize, waxy maize, high amylose maize, wheat, tapioca and potato; native starches are generally used for the purpose of food texturizing and thickening. They are insoluble in cold water and swell to different degrees depending on the temperature used. Native starches have very good thickening, gelling, moisture retention and anti-staling properties.
