Although they have no major known adverse effects, but because some starches, ie corn can be genetically modified, this raises some cause for concern.
Contact with the manufacturer of the product should be used to ascertain it’s origins.

Description: Distarch Phosphate is prepared by treating starch with a phosphorylating agent, trimetaphosphate or phosphoroxychloride and phosphoric acid. The resulting starch has increased stability at high and low temperatures and is more resistant against acid.
They are prepared by physically, enzymatically, or chemically treating native starch, thereby changing the properties of the starch.
Modified starches are used in practically all starch applications, such as in food products as a thickening agent, stabilizer or emulsifier; in pharmaceuticals as a disintegrant; as binder in coated paper.
They are also used in many other applications. (Wiki)
