What are Native Starches?

Native starches are plant-based ingredients, which are obtained from various agricultural raw materials.

Native starch is a white to off-white powder with a neutral odour and taste. It has an energy value of 4kcal/g (similar to all other carbohydrates).

Native starches are carbohydrates, and are physically extracted from agricultural raw materials such as wheat, maize and potatoes, but also rice, barley, and peas. In the process, proteins and fibres are separated out.

Native starches are used widely in the food and paper industry primarily for binding and thickening purposes
