Modified Food Starch

can anyone give me a simple explanation on this?
I realize modified means the starch is no longer in its "pure" form. I assume that means something has either been added or taken away from it.
Someone in one of groups said her diet plan suggests staying away from corn starch. My understanding is corn starch is a pure starch. if one is to avoid corn starch, should one also avoid all modified starches?
could modified imply the starch is a blend of starches?
should we all be avoiding modified food starches?

if you want to avoid corn starch, it's best to avoid modified food starch- it can be a combo of starches, including corn. Also, if you're avoid, corn, corn derivatives include: corn syrup, "vegetable oil", golden syrup, dextrose, maltodextrin, glucose-fructose.
