E1420 Acetylated starch

E1420 Acetylated starch

Product Description:
E1420 is the European food additive code for acetylated starch (also known as modified starch E1420). It is a modified starch derived from various starch sources, such as corn, tapioca, or wheat. Acetylated starch undergoes a modification process involving acetylation, which alters its properties and enhances its functionality for various applications in the food industry.
Acetylated starch is typically a white to off-white powder with a neutral taste and odor. The modification process involves the introduction of acetyl groups to the starch molecules, which improves its stability, solubility, and resistance to shear and acid conditions. The degree of acetylation can vary, affecting the functional properties of the modified starch.

Product Applications:
Food Industry: Acetylated starch serves as a versatile ingredient with multiple functions in food applications. Some common applications include:

Sauces and Dressings: It is used as a thickening and stabilizing agent in sauces, gravies, salad dressings, and condiments. Acetylated starch improves viscosity, texture, and stability.

Bakery Products: Acetylated starch can be used in bakery products such as bread, cakes, pastries, and fillings. It improves moisture retention, texture, and shelf stability.

Processed Meats: It finds application in processed meat products like sausages, hams, and canned meats. Acetylated starch acts as a binder, improving texture, water retention, and sliceability.
Dairy Products: Acetylated starch is used in dairy-based products like custards, puddings, and dairy desserts. It helps improve consistency, texture, and stability during processing and storage.

Confectionery: It is used in confectionery products like candies, jellies, and fillings. Acetylated starch provides texture enhancement, stability, and resistance to heat and acid conditions.

Beverages: Acetylated starch can be used as a stabilizer or thickener in beverages to improve mouthfeel and prevent sedimentation.

Non-Food Applications: Acetylated starch may also have non-food applications, including:

Pharmaceutical Industry: It can be used as a binder, disintegrant, or controlled-release agent in pharmaceutical tablets and capsules.

Personal Care Products: Acetylated starch finds application in personal care products like cosmetics, lotions, and creams, where it acts as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsion stabilizer.

Paper Industry: Acetylated starch can be used in the paper industry as a sizing agent to improve paper strength, surface smoothness, and ink holdout.
