ISO: modified corn starch

Looking for modified corn starch- shockingly, it's not to be found at bulk barn.
I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure 'modified corn starch' is a generic term. There are several modified corn starches that I am aware of, which are used for different applications.
Can I ask your application? Do you have a recipe that is just asking for modified corn starch?
Pie recipe. Rather than macerate-and-boil on the apples and knead-and-rest on the dough, this is a rapid application that requires modified corn starch to let the liquids gel.
That help any?
It's not what I was thinking. I'm guessing if they wanted you to use a specific modified corn starch such as 'Ultratex 4', they'd have spelled it out.
Now it has me wondering if all corn starch could be considered 'modified', but I don't think that is the case.
Hopefully someone else will chime in, now I'm curious.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help,
Yes, you can probably grab what you need from GB for an extra pie or two. If not, Golda's does mail order, and I got a lifetime supply for under $10. Or, if one of your classmates lives near Goldas, they can buy a bag for the whole class to share. (I have to say, the GB recipe with this modified cornstarch makes one of the best apple pies that I have ever tasted.)
