Waxy Maize

What is Waxy Maize?

Waxy maize is a type of corn starch used for its unique amylopectin content. Amylopectin is a type of starch molecule that is highly branched and imparts a waxy texture when cooked.

It can be utilized in confectionery products like candies, gums, and jellies to provide structure, texture, and mouthfeel.

Waxy maize may be used in beverages such as smoothies and dairy-based drinks as a thickening or stabilizing agent.
