Specialty Corn Starches
SunOpta® Speciality Starches are thermally processed, high amylose corn starches. They are uniquely suited to improve texture and reduce fat and calories in dairy products or imitation dairy products. The ingredient declaration for these natural starch products is corn starch.
OptaGrade® and OptaMist® starches are acid stable, non-granular starches that gel instead of swell to provide viscosity. These specialty starches are very resistant to shear and have significantly lower in-process viscosities compared to traditional modified starches, a key advantage in high-temperature, short-time pasteurization.
