Type Description
Native & Functional Native Starches Derived from maize, waxy maize, high amylose maize, wheat, tapioca and potato; native starches are generally used for the purpose of food texturizing and thickening.
Pre-gelatinized Starches Pre-gelatinized starches are starches that develop viscosity without the need for heat. Food manufacturers do not need to pre-cook the starch to obtain texturizing benefits.
Specialty Starches Specialty starches offer a range of functional properties such as texturizing, binding, thickening, gelling and stabilizing, and offer unique benefits for specific applications.
