E1450 Starch sodium octenyl succinate

E1450 Starch sodium octenyl succinate

Product Description:
E1450 is starch sodium octenyl succinate (also known as modified starch E1450). Starch sodium octenyl succinate is a modified starch derived from various starch sources, such as corn, tapioca, or wheat. It undergoes a modification process involving the esterification of starch with octenyl succinic anhydride (OSA), resulting in changes to its properties and functionality.
Starch sodium octenyl succinate is typically available as a white to off-white powder. The modification process introduces octenyl succinic groups to the starch molecules, improving its solubility, emulsifying properties, and stability. The degree of substitution can vary, affecting the functional properties of the modified starch.

Product Applications:
Starch sodium octenyl succinate serves as a versatile ingredient with various functions in food applications. Some common applications include:
Food Industry: Starch sodium octenyl succinate is used as a multifunctional ingredient in the food industry. Here are some of its applications:

Emulsification: It acts as an emulsifier, helping to stabilize emulsions and improve the dispersion of fat or oil in water-based products. It is commonly used in salad dressings, sauces, and beverages.

Stabilization: Starch sodium octenyl succinate enhances the stability of food products by preventing phase separation or sedimentation. It is used in various dairy products, such as yogurts, creams, and ice creams.

Texture and Mouthfeel: It improves the texture and mouthfeel of food products, providing creaminess, smoothness, and viscosity. It finds application in soups, sauces, desserts, and bakery products.

Coating and Film Formation: Starch sodium octenyl succinate can be used as a coating or film-forming agent. It helps improve the appearance, texture, and shelf life of coated products, such as snacks and confectionery items.

Encapsulation: It is employed in encapsulation processes to protect sensitive ingredients, such as flavors or nutrients, and improve their stability and release properties.
Non-Food Applications: Starch sodium octenyl succinate may also have non-food applications, including:

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

Cosmetics and Personal Care Products: Starch sodium octenyl succinate finds application in cosmetic and personal care products, such as creams, lotions, and hair care products. It acts as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier.

Paper Industry: It can be used in the paper industry as a coating agent to enhance surface properties, printability, and strength of paper products.
