Rice starch - WX

Rice starch – WX is a dry powder product with a very low protein content of vegetable origin. It consists mainly of amylose, amylopectin and water.
It is distinguished by its high amylopectin content, low gel temperature and high viscosity in cold and hot conditions.
The high amylopectin content confers greater resistance to retrogradation.
Rice starch – WX is available in the types WX-LS and WX-HS, the latter characterized by greater resistance to high temperatures and acid pH.

The product is presented as a white flour (powder), insoluble in cold water, with a neutral smell and taste. It has a mild sweet taste, in fact food rice starch is often used in the kitchen to prepare sweets.
