Careful are label-friendly starches that can provide a range of functional benefits in many different applications:
Native starch is naturally found in many grains and vegetables. It is a polymeric carbohydrate, and it consists of numerous glucose units joined by glycosidic bonds. As an ingredient, starch is used in various food products valued for its innate functionality, including thickening, stabilizing, or emulsifying properties. Starch is an important ingredient in foods such as soups, sauces, and gravies.
While native starch is widely used for its texturizing properties, it is sensitive to processing conditions, including heat, pH, and freeze/thaw conditions.
Plain native starch can't hold up to harsh processing and/or storage conditions.
Careful clean label starches were designed to withstand harsh processing conditions, including high temperatures, pH, and storage conditions offering freeze/thaw stability. Careful clean label starches behave and function similarly to chemically modified starches. A&B Ingredients offers clean label product with improved swelling behavior and a simple "starch" label.
