Pregelatinized Maize Starch – Food Grade

Applications of Pregelatinized Maize Starch –Pharma Grade

Pregelatinized Starch Food Grade is a cold water swelling starch and has a moderate solubility and viscosity without the need for cooking or high temperatures, which means that the food manufacture does not need to precook the starch. Pregelatinized Starch Food Grade has been chemically or mechanically processed to rupture all or part of the granules in the presence of water and subsequently dried and modified to render them compressible and flowable in character. The pre – gelatinization process provides the ability to form cold gel for native and or modified starches. For the categories of beverages, mats, convenience, dairy products and bakery, pre-gelatinized starches have their functionalities described below.
