Our superior Wheat Starch is an uncooked highly refined wheat starch. Commonly used in bookbinding and paper conservation as an adhesive for paper, leather, fabric, and other porous materials. It is sought after as a very stable adhesive with excellent long term aging characteristics. This starch is exceptionally white in color due to an extra washing process to remove impurities, gelatinizes at low cooking temperatures and forms cooled pastes which are delicate and smooth in texture. Has a high water holding capacity, pH 5-6.5 (measured in a 70% slurry).
To buffer this material, add 10% (by weight) of calcium carbonate.
This product requires cooking.
