Starch acts as colloid and is added to absorb any toxic metabolites produced. Hence, the toxins won’t be able to affect the actions of antibiotics. Starch is added to absorb any toxic metabolites produced. It allows the growth of almost all types of organisms. Starch hydrolysis yields dextrose, which serves as a source of energy.
