Functional uses

  • Enhance adhesion, minimizing starch loss; enhance rehydration properties, reducing cooking or brewing time; 
  • Boost product toughness and elasticity for a smoother and chewier taste. 
  • Decrease oil absorption rates, prolong shelf life; higher oil absorption and water capacity, facilitating subsequent processes and cost management.



  • Used in breads and cakes to improve moisture retention and anti-aging.
  • Used in tapioca balls, it has a lower gelatinization temperature so that the product can be gelatinized at a relatively low temperature and can absorb.
  • Used in Mayonnaise
