Maize modified starch:
To improve the properties of starch and expand its application range, physical, chemical or enzymatic treatment is used to introduce new functional groups into the maize starch molecule or to change the size of the starch molecule and the properties of the starch granules, thus changing the natural properties of the starch (e.g. pasting temperature, thermal viscosity and its stability, freeze-thaw stability, gelation, film formation, transparency, etc.) and making it more suitable for certain applications. This is the case for This secondary processing of maize starch changes its properties and is called maize modified starch.
The upstream of modified starch is mainly the starch industry. The main supply in China's starch market is corn starch, and the proportion of domestic corn starch production has been maintained at nearly 92% in recent years.
