Description: Aluminium Starch Octenyl Succinate is prepared by treating starch with the aluminium salt of the reaction product with succinic acid and octanol. The resulting starch is more stable against acid, alkaline and starch degrading enzymes. It also provides better colour and shine to products.
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)
