We add starches because they’re a brilliant way to give our foods a thicker, more luxurious mouthfeel. You may find them in our plant-based alternatives to yogurt and cream, desserts and ice cream. The starch we use is modified starch, derived from maize. Mind you: it hasn’t been genetically modified, in case you were wondering. It simply means that it’s been treated before use so that it won’t be affected by the high temperatures used in our cooking and sterilization processes. Like a sort of super-starch, if you will!
