LU - 1404 - 2 is a product of oxidation of potato starch with sodium hypochlorite. It has better functional properties than potato starch. When boiled, aqueous solutions of LU - 1404 - 2 form transparent colloidal solutions with low viscosity which, once cooled, remain liquid or turn into relatively strong gels. Regardless of their concentration, pastes and gels based on LU - 1404 - 2 are not prone to retrogradation or syneresis. Owing to its low viscosity, the maximum concentration allowed for cooking is 15%.
