Modified Cassava Starch

Modified Cassava Starch

Product Description:
Modified cassava starch modified tapioca starch refers to cassava starch that has undergone physical, enzymatic, or chemical modifications to alter its properties and functionality. These modifications enhance its stability, thickening abilities, gelatinization temperature, or resistance to shear, heat, and acid. Modified cassava starch can come in various forms such as pregelatinized starch, cross-linked starch, oxidized starch, or acetylated starch.

Product Application:

Food Industry: Modified cassava starch is widely used in the food industry for its improved functionality. It is commonly used as a thickening agent, stabilizer, emulsifier, or texture enhancer in products like sauces, dressings, soups, bakery fillings, and confectionery. It can improve the texture, mouthfeel, and stability of food products during processing and storage. Modified cassava starches with specific properties, such as high shear resistance or freeze-thaw stability, are often used in specialized food applications.

Gluten-Free Products: Modified cassava starch plays a crucial role in gluten-free products, especially as a substitute for wheat flour. It helps provide structure, texture, and binding properties to gluten-free baked goods, such as bread, cakes, and cookies. Modified cassava starches with improved viscoelastic properties are particularly beneficial for gluten-free baking.
Beverage Industry: Modified cassava starch is used in the beverage industry as a stabilizer, emulsifier, or thickening agent. It can improve the texture, mouthfeel, and stability of various beverages, including dairy-based drinks, fruit juices, and instant powdered beverages.

Pharmaceutical Industry: Modified cassava starch is utilized in the pharmaceutical industry as an excipient or filler in tablet and capsule formulations. It aids in the binding of active ingredients, improves tablet disintegration, and facilitates controlled drug release. Modified cassava starches with specific properties, such as sustained release or fast disintegration, are employed for different pharmaceutical applications.

Paper and Textile Industry: Modified cassava starch is used in the paper and textile industries for sizing, coating, and finishing purposes. It can enhance the strength, surface smoothness, printability, and water resistance of paper products. In the textile industry, modified cassava starch improves the handling and weaving properties of fabrics.
Adhesives and Binders: Modified cassava starch finds applications in the production of adhesives and binders used in various industries. It can act as a binder in plywood manufacturing, paperboard production, and the formulation of adhesives for packaging applications.

Personal Care Products: Modified cassava starch is incorporated into personal care products like creams, lotions, and shampoos. It functions as a thickener, stabilizer, or emulsion stabilizer, improving the product's texture, stability, and sensory attributes.

Modified cassava starch offers enhanced functionality and performance compared to regular cassava starch, making it suitable for a wide range of applications across the food, pharmaceutical, paper, textile, and personal care industries.
