Due to its relatively high water absorption property, starch is used in sauces to make it thick and stable and to create optimal cutability and fluidity. Due to low pH, high temperatures and high shear force, it is necessary to use a lot of cross-linked starch in cooked sauces. The amount of single substitution available will vary according to the formulation and desired texture. Blends containing modified waxy corn and horse tooth corn starch are typically used in higher fat, scoopable sauces. Modified corn starch is included in the formulation to shorten (weaken) the texture and create cutability. Unmodified horse tooth cornstarch is sometimes used for increased cutability. Modified waxy corn starch products alone are more common in pourable sauces. Potato and tapioca starches have not been successful in this application because they are more sensitive to acid and cutting. Reduced-fat and fat-replaced sauces typically use highly stabilized, cross-linked, waxy corn starch. Low-fat or fat-free sauces use fat substitutes (usually dextrin, maltodextrin, or single-substituted hydrolyzates).
