1) Dextrin, bleached starch, starches modified by acid, alkali and enzyme or by physically treatment are not considered as food additives in the context of the EEC Directive 95/2/EC.

2) Modified starches, Annex 1 of EEC Directive No. 95/2/EC (An ingredient category)

3)CCFAC International Numbering System (INS) 1989  ftp://ftp.fao.org/codex/standard/volume1a/en/CXxot04e.pdf
