Pea starch is characterized by medium viscosity, and gelatinizes at a higher temperature compared to other native starches. Because of its high amylose content (~35%) and restricted swelling power, native pea starch attains greater stability under high heat, shear and acid conditions than is typical of native starches. It can form a gel in water at a much lower dosage than other starches, making it the best gelling native starch. Pea starch is an ideal ingredient for food products that require a short, elastic texture such as glass noodles or gummy confectionaries.
