Specialty Starches

Food starches offer a range of functional properties such as texturizing, binding, thickening, gelling and stabilizing, but in addition they can be modified to offer unique opportunities for specific applications.

Cargill brand name Applications
C☆AraSet® A thinned and stabilized starch specifically designed for replacing gum Arabic in confectionery applications
C☆ClearSet® A thinned starch with a very high clarity  to replace gelatin in confectionery applications
C☆CleanSet® Native starches with mineral oil added for producing confectionery molds
C☆DeliTex® Starches with particular thin-thick profiles for UHT applications.
The improved heat penetration properties of these starches allow for less processing clean up and longer production runs

C☆EmTex® Emulsifying starches with both hydrophilic and lipophilic properties which are used to replace eggs (for cholesterol reduction)
C☆PulpTex® PulpTex® modified starch is a pregelatinized (roll dried) starch that is specially designed to provide pulpy texture.

Starches from Cargill are available as tailor-made starchy based solutions, under the TexDesign® brandname. For example, the TexDesign® 59050 solution is a bakery fat replacement system that is used as a dry-mix or cream to replace margarine or oil.
