A clarifying agent is a substance that is added to a mixture to improve its clarity, remove impurities, or improve its filtering properties. In the food industry, clarifying agents can be used to remove solids, reduce haze, and stabilize liquids to improve their appearance and quality. Examples of clarifying agents in the food industry include pectin, gelatin, and chitosan.
Modified starch can be used as a clarifying agent in food and beverage applications. It helps to improve the clarity and viscosity of the product, such as fruit juices and syrups. It acts as a thickener, emulsifier, and stabilizer, improving the texture and appearance of the final product. Additionally, modified starch can prevent sedimentation, which can maintain the clarity of the product over time. The properties of the modified starch can be adjusted to match the desired clarity and viscosity requirements.
