Unmodified Starches & Glucose

Sweet as Can Be

The importance of unmodified starches and glucose in the food industry simply cannot be debated, and over the years we have gone the distance to source only the finest quality ingredients. Our maize-based unmodified starches are used as thickeners and stabilisers in the manufacturing process, whereas our glucose range acts as a carrier. While most people assume that glucose is a sweetener, it can either add a sweetened or bland taste to your product, depending on your preferences. Browse our starches and glucose below, and feel free to contact us for samples, quotes, lead times and MOQ’s – available on request.
