Hi, I've seen a few questions on the bb about wondering what modified food starch is. I ran across this in a FAN peanut flashback:
Modified food starch comes from various sources. Corn is the most common source of modified food starch, but tapicoa,potatoes, wheat and rice may also be used. Peanuts are not used in the manufacturing of food starch because they are primarily fat and protein and contain very little carbohydrate (sugar), the source of starch.
