Probably! “Modified food starch” is wheat, corn, potato, or tapioca starch whose molecules have been rearranged. If wheat starch is used, that allergen must be listed on the ingredients label. Consider this statement published originally in the magazine Gluten Free Living and quoted on the website Gluten Free in San Diego: “In all my 13 years of following the gluten-free diet, and ten years studying ingredients, I don’t know of a single instance where a modified food starch turned out to be modified wheat starch. . . . I have never seen or heard about modified rye starch or modified barley starch being used for anything. In fact, the starch experts I spoke to said they don’t think these starches exist.” Celiac.com places “modified food starch” on its “Unsafe Foods List” but makes this comment: “If this ingredient is made in North America, it is likely to be gluten free”.
