E1440 Hydroxypropyl starch
Potato modified starch is the starch extracted from potato, which has changed its original physical and chemical properties after a series of chemical or physical treatments.
In the process of production, potato starch will lose part of its natural crystallinity and increase its solubility and stability in water after being washed, broken, dehydrated and dried. At the same time, by adding chemical reagents or high temperature and high pressure treatment, the starch molecules can be broken and cross-linked to form a more stable structure, thus improving the physical properties of starch such as thermal expansion and contraction, rheological properties, viscosity, and improving its applicability and processability.
Product ApplicationThe use of potato modified starch is very extensive, including clothing, food, housing, and transportation. For example, clothing worn on the body, whether it is cotton, wool, or blended, requires the use of modified starch as a sizing and finishing agent. All paper, the more high-grade paper, the more denatured starch is used. Petroleum drilling, sewage treatment, daily chemical products, various fine chemical products, such as building materials, casting. And there are also cosmetics. Food, meat products, convenience foods, puffed foods, sauces, soups, and all other foods need to be used. Even automotive manufacturing uses denatured starch. The upstream of modified starch is mainly the starch industry, and potato starch is a very high-end, high-quality raw material for modified starch in industry.
Potatoes are the main industrial raw materials for the production of starch, glucose, alcohol, etc. Starch can be directly used in the textile, paper, and food processing industries; Starch processing a variety of modified starch for the production of advanced coatings, starch paper (used for candy packaging), and so on; Starch fermentation can produce organic acids, amino acids, enzyme preparations, etc.
Modified starch is a kind of starch that is changed by physical or chemical treatment. It is widely used in industry and cosmetics industry. Here are some common applications:
In the industrial industry, modified starch is often used in the following fields:
Pulp and paper industry: Modified starch can be used as coating and adhesive to improve the strength and gloss of paper.
Textile industry: modified starch can be used as adhesive and anti-shrinking agent, which can make the fiber more firm and not easy to shrink.
Food processing industry: denatured starch can be used as thickener, stabilizer and colloid stabilizer for making cakes, biscuits, frozen foods, etc.
Chemical industry: Modified starch can be used as adhesive, emulsifier, colloid stabilizer and adhesive for pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes.
In the cosmetics industry, modified starch is usually used for the following applications:
Skin care products: denatured starch can be used as an oil absorbent, thickener and stabilizer, and can be used to make facial cleansers, face cream, sunscreen, etc.
Foundation make-up and makeup: denatured starch can be used as oil absorbent and thickener, and can be used to make foundation make-up, eye shadow, powder blusher, etc.
Shampoo and conditioner: Modified starch can be used as thickener and stabilizer to make shampoo and conditioner.
In short, modified starch is widely used in industry and cosmetics, and is one of the indispensable ingredients in many products.
