Pregelatinized starch - Alpha starch

Pregelatinized tapioca starch is a modified form of plant-based tapioca starch that has been processed to undergo a pregelatinization process. During this process, vegan native tapioca starch is heated and then dried, which modifies its properties and makes it easier to dissolve in cold or warm water. Pregelatinized tapioca starch is commonly used in various food applications and industrial processes due to its unique characteristics.
