Organic waxy corn starch
Organic waxy maize starch is obtained from special maize varieties. This special starch consists - in contrast to standard organic maize starch - almost exclusively of amylopectin. This special composition gives waxy maize starch properties that are very interesting for food processors. It is extracted from organic waxy maize by means of physical processes (grinding, leaching, drying). Organic waxy maize starch is often used as a thickening agent in the food industry. For example, in ready meals, soups, baby food and as an emulsifier in salad dressings. This GMO-free starch is also used in the production of vegan products.

What is organic waxy maize starch and what is the difference to "normal" maize starch?
Waxy maize is indistinguishable from "normal yellow maize" purely in terms of appearance. Waxy maize was specially bred from maize that originally came from Mexico. Only when you analyse the composition of the starch do you see that waxy maize starch consists of 99% amylopectin and 1% amylose (composition of yellow maize starch: 25% amylose, 75% amylopectin). Maize starch is gluten-free and lactose-free, and is ideal for baking.
