Classification of food starches

Topic Progress:

Native starches that are modified into pregelatinised starch, dextrins or thinned starches legally are considered food ingredients and do not carry E-numbers.

When native starches are oxidised, cross-linked or modified into starch esters and ethers they legally become starch additives and have to carry an INS or E-number under international food regulation.
