Pregelatinized Starch


  • Pregelatinized Starch is a modified starch that has undergone a cooking and drying process to modify its properties. This process makes the starch swell and absorb water more readily, leading to its “pregelatinized” state. It’s available as a fine white powder and is commonly derived from sources like corn, potato, or rice.
