Natural vs. Modified Starch
Natural starches are great thickeners and certainly have their place in cooking. Working simply and effectively a natural starch is activated when it comes in contact with water, absorbing the liquid and swelling to thicken your recipes. However, when fats and oils are introduced, natural starches are rendered useless. The fats cover the starch molecules and do not allow them to absorb liquid, thus negating their use; this is where modified starches come in handy. Tapioca Maltodextrin is modified in such a way that it can interact with fats, but instead of thickening them, it can convert them into oils or powders.
