Modified Wheat Starch

Modified Wheat Starch

Product Description:
Modified wheat starch refers to wheat starch that has undergone a modification process to alter its properties and enhance its functionality for various applications in the food industry. The specific modifications can vary, but they typically involve physical, chemical, or enzymatic treatments.
Modified wheat starch is typically available as a fine white powder. The modification process can result in changes to its texture, solubility, gelatinization properties, stability, and viscosity.

Product Applications:
Modified wheat starch serves as a versatile ingredient with multiple functions in food applications. Some common applications include:

Thickening and Stabilization: Modified wheat starch is commonly used as a thickening agent in a wide range of food products. It helps improve viscosity, texture, and stability. It finds application in soups, sauces, gravies, dressings, and other liquid-based products.

Bakery and Confectionery: Modified wheat starch can be used in bakery products such as bread, cakes, pastries, and fillings. It helps improve texture, moisture retention, and shelf stability. In confectionery products, it aids in providing structure, texture, and stability.

Dairy Products: Modified wheat starch is employed in dairy-based products like yogurts, puddings, and dairy desserts as a thickener and stabilizer. It contributes to the desired consistency, texture, and stability of these products.
Meat and Seafood Products: It finds application in processed meat products such as sausages, meat fillings, and canned meats. Modified wheat starch acts as a binder, improving texture, water retention, and stability.

Ready-to-Eat Meals and Instant Foods: Modified wheat starch can be used in ready-to-eat meals, instant soups, and quick-cooking products to enhance texture and ensure consistent results.

Snacks and Coatings: It is employed in snack foods like crisps, chips, and coated snacks to provide a desirable texture, crispness, and adhesion.

Gluten-Free Products: Modified wheat starch can be used in gluten-free food formulations to enhance texture, improve binding properties, and mimic the functionality of gluten in baked goods.

Other Applications: Modified wheat starch may also find application in non-food industries, such as pharmaceuticals, textiles, and paper manufacturing, where it can serve as a binder, filler, or coating agent.

The specific usage levels and application guidelines for modified wheat starch may vary depending on the desired functionality and the specific product being developed.
