Native Rice Starch Supplier
Native rice starch is a natural polymeric carbohydrate, which is the main component of rice. It is a very white insoluble powder that has a neutral smell and taste, which helps assure the preservation of the authentic taste and color in clean-label food products.
Rice starch has a very fine granularity, generally much smaller than those of wheat, corn, or potato starches even Tapioca. The granules are about the same size as fat globules, making it a possible fat replacer. After heating with water, rice starch forms a gel with a smooth and creamy texture. Rice starch applications are generally described as either common or waxy. Common rice starch is best used for binding applications in various food products, including confectionaries, dairy products, extrusion, infant food, processed meats, sauces, soups, and puddings. Waxy rice starch is best used for fat-replacement applications due to fat-like mouthfeel for dairy products, pastries, processed meats, sauces, soups, and coatings for deep fat frying.

Rice starch is used as a substitute for wheat starch in gluten-free baking, as it enhances texture and stability in baked goods.
