Hi,

Native starch is probably OK for home use or short term storage. But food companies producing items that requires long term storage, modified starch is the only way to go. Native starches have poor freeze-thaw stability and can affect texture of your product.

Best to get in contact with the experts like AVEBE (potato starch) or National Starch (Corn/Tapioca starch). Both companies have modified starches that can help with your product.
