Cargill Food & Pharma SpecialtiesCargill Food & Pharma Specialties introduces ActiStar RT resistant tapioca starch. It provides the benefits of high-fiber in food formulations with lower net carbohydrates, calculated by subtracting sugar alcohols and dietary fiber from total carbs.
A replacement for flour with about 80 percent total dietary fiber, ActiStar RT is especially useful in reducing the total net carbs in typically high-carb foods such as breads and cereal.
ActiStar RT has a low water-holding capacity, permitting high levels of inclusion with few formulation changes and a non-gummy texture. As a source of bland, resistant starch, ActiStar RT doesn’t detract from taste, texture or appearance of finished products.
