Permitted Stabilizer (INS1450) is a food additive that works as a stabilizer by maintaining the uniform dispersal of substances in the food. It is prepared by treating starch with octenylsuccinate. It is a modified starch. Modified starches are obtained by treatment of corn or wheat starch with heat, alkali, acids or enzymes. These are not absorbed by our digestive system, but are broken down by intestinal enzymes and then fermented by intestinal microbiota. Permitted Stabilizer (INS1450) is a white, off-white or canary yellow powder. It is also added to foods as an emulsifier(that which forms or helps preserve a mixture of substances normally incapable of being mixed eg. oil and water)and thickener( that which increases the viscosity of a food).
When buying Permitted Stabilizer (INS1450) always check the label and make sure it is within the expiry period. It is best to choose from a reputed brand to avoid any adulteration.
