E1442 Hydroxypropyl distarch phosphate

E1442 Hydroxypropyl distarch phosphate

Product Description:
E1442 is hydroxypropyl distarch phosphate (also known as modified starch E1442). Hydroxypropyl distarch phosphate is a modified starch derived from various starch sources, such as corn, tapioca, or wheat. It undergoes a modification process involving hydroxypropylation and phosphorylation, which alters its properties and enhances its functionality for various applications in the food industry.
Hydroxypropyl distarch phosphate typically appears as a white to off-white powder with a neutral taste and odor. The modification process introduces hydroxypropyl and phosphate groups to the starch molecules, improving its solubility, stability, and viscosity characteristics. The degree of hydroxypropylation and phosphorylation can vary, affecting the functional properties of the modified starch.
Product Applications:
Food Industry: Hydroxypropyl 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. Hydroxypropyl distarch phosphate improves viscosity, texture, and stability.
