E1404 Oxidized starch

E1404 Oxidized starch

Product Description:
E1404 is oxidized starch (also known as modified starch E1404). Oxidized starch is derived from various starch sources, such as corn, tapioca, or wheat, and undergoes a modification process involving chemical oxidation. This process introduces oxygen-containing functional groups to the starch molecules, altering their properties and enhancing their functionality in various applications.
Oxidized starch appears as a white to off-white powder with a neutral taste and odor. The modification process results in improved solubility, stability, and viscosity characteristics. The degree of oxidation can vary, affecting the functional properties of the modified starch.

Product Applications:
Food Industry: Oxidized 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. Oxidized starch improves viscosity, texture, and stability.

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

Processed Meats: It finds application in processed meat products like sausages, hams, and canned meats. Oxidized starch acts as a binder, improving texture, water retention, and sliceability.
Dairy Products: Oxidized 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. Oxidized starch provides texture enhancement, stability, and resistance to heat and acid conditions.

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

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

Paper Industry: It finds use in the paper industry as a surface sizing agent, enhancing paper strength, printability, and ink holdout.

Textile Industry: Oxidized starch can be used as a sizing agent in the textile industry to improve fabric strength, stiffness, and resistance to creasing.

Adhesives: It is used in the formulation of adhesives, providing tackiness and bonding properties.

Personal Care Products: Oxidized starch finds application in personal care products like cosmetics, lotions, and creams, where it acts as a thickener, stabilizer, and film-forming agent.
