Oxidized starch, as the name suggests, is modified starch produced by means of oxygenation of starch with a variety of oxidizing agents. Oxidized starches have shorter chain lengths than native starches. It improves whiteness and reduces microbiological content. In addition, the hydrogen bonding reduces the tendency to retro-gradation. Producing soft- bodied gels of high clarity, oxidized starches are the best thickener for applications requiring gels of low rigidity.
