Cuisine Tech Ultra Tex 3 Tapioca Starch is a high-performance, cold water swelling modified food starch derived from tapioca used to add gloss and as a thickener and stabilizer. It exhibits many of the properties of a modified cook-up starch and possesses high viscosity and a very bland flavor profile with good mouth melt-away characteristics.
Ingredients: Modified food starch.
Storage Conditions: Dry and cool (68-72F, 20-22C)
Applications: Provides a very smooth, short, and glossy texture in a range of instant food applications. It also imparts a rich creamy mouthfeel while possessing a very bland flavor profile. In addition, this product has improved tolerance to heating and acidic conditions compared to conventional pre-gelatinized tapioca starches. A further advantage when using this product is the excellent textural stability it possesses, even in cold temperature or refrigerated storage conditions.
Directions: Ultra Tex 3 will develop viscosity and texture as soon as it comes into contact with cold or hot water. It is recommended that Ultra Tex 3 is dry blended with other ingredients particularly sugar, or dispersed in oil to aid its dispersion into water. The viscosity of Ultra Tex 3 is stable at high temperatures particularly in neutral pH systems. Typical usage levels in liquid systems could be 2-5%.
