Starch sodium octenyl succinate is prepared by treating starch with octenyl succinic anhydride (succinic acid and octanol). The ingredient of SSOS is modified acetyl modified starch ester. It is used as emulsifier, stabilizer, thickener and microcapsule embedding medium.
Main and auxiliary ingredients:
Octenyl succinic anhydride (OSA)

Thickener. A substance used to increase the viscosity of a mixture while not changing any other properties.
Emulsifier: Used in food to maintain a uniform mixture between two or more unblendable mixtures. For example a mixture of oil and water. Predominately used to thicken drinks, yoghurt, cheese, canned food, frozen fruit, pies, jellies, gravy stuffing, and thick food, canned vegetables, fishes and meat, salad dressings, sauces, and confectionary.
This is achieved by having one end of the emulsifier molecule soluble in water and the other end soluble in fats and oils. for products containing oil-in-water emulsions, and is easily soluble in cold liquids. It effectively disperses oils and fats in sauces, improves colourAdded to change or intensify colour in food. and taste, avoids de-mixing, remains unchanged when food is frozen and thawed, and extends the shelf-life of products.
