Work by National Starch and Chemical

Recent trial work has apparently shown that, by replacing the more expensive binding agents, such as caseinates, speciality starches can offer economic advantages in the manufacture of a range of meat products. These starches will reduce the juice loss from meat products, reduce the problem of matter transfer, are lower in calories and help to increase heat penetration.

Likewise, National Starch have been experimenting by selectively using modified starches in the production of low-fat spreads. Again they are used to replace caseinates but the fullest details come from the starch supplier of Prestbury Court, Greencourts Business Park, 333 Styal Road, Manchester M22, tel: 061-435 3200.
