E1414 Acetylated distarch phosphate

E1414 Acetylated distarch phosphate

Product Description:

E1414 is the European food additive code for acetylated distarch phosphate (also known as modified starch E1414). It is a modified starch derived from various starch sources, such as corn, tapioca, or wheat. Acetylated distarch phosphate undergoes a modification process involving acetylation and phosphorylation, which enhances its functional properties and expands its applications in the food industry.
Acetylated distarch phosphate appears as a white to off-white powder with a neutral taste and odor. It has good solubility in cold water and forms a clear, viscous solution when dissolved. The modification process alters the structure of the starch molecules, improving its stability, resistance to shear, and tolerance to high temperatures and acid conditions.

Product Applications:
Food Industry: Acetylated distarch phosphate 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. It provides viscosity, texture enhancement, and stability.
Bakery Products: Acetylated distarch phosphate is used in bakery products such as bread, cakes, pastries, and fillings. It improves moisture retention, texture, and shelf stability. It can also act as a fat replacer in some formulations.

Processed Meats: It finds application in processed meat products like sausages, hams, and canned meats. It acts as a binder, improving texture, water retention, and sliceability.

Dairy Products: Acetylated distarch phosphate can be used in dairy-based products like custards, puddings, and ice creams. It helps improve consistency, texture, and stability during processing and storage.

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

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

Non-Food Applications: Acetylated distarch phosphate 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: The modified starch may find application in personal care products like cosmetics, lotions, and creams, where it acts as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsion stabilizer.
Paper Industry: Acetylated distarch phosphate can be used as a sizing agent in the paper industry to improve paper strength, surface smoothness, and ink holdout.
