In this report, Technavio highlights the rising consumption of industrial starch due to its functional properties as one of the key emerging trends in the global industrial starch market:
Global industrial starch market: Rising consumption due to its functional properties
Based on the composition of raw materials, raw material source, and the level of processing, industrial starch is available in different forms. The functional properties of industrial starch resemble the properties of amylose and amylopectin. Different raw materials such as corn, wheat, tapioca, potato, maize, rice, amaranth, and arrowroot are used to derive industrial starch. The ratio of amylose and amylopectin, functional properties, and composition of the raw materials regulate the quality, viscosity, solubility, and resistance to high temperatures.
Industrial starch with high concentrations of amylose and amylopectin contains a smooth texture when compared to gelatinized starch. Industrial starch has brilliant gelling properties, viscosity, and strength. It is extensively used as a thickener, sweetener, binder, and stabilizer in food products. It has high resistance towards heating or shearing and prevents undesired hydration, says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on additives, adhesives, and sealants.
