Non-chemically Modified Starch

William Baumgartner, Benedict, Dirk, King, Joan M.

AgCenter scientists have developed a new process to modify the properties of starch without chemicals. Normally, such changes would require that the ingredient be labeled “modified starch”; however, this process allows the ingredient to be labeled simply as “starch.” The unique process also can increase the natural benefits of the starch, such as satiety, making it more appealing to consumers.
