Risistarch® is an odorless, white powder with a bland taste. Corn is one of the main sources of commercially produced starch which is the most important source of carbohydrates in the human diet.
Chemically, starch is a carbohydrate. It is a polymer comprising of a range of molecular sizes. The basic mononumeric unit is Danhydroglucose. The two basic types of polymers present are Amylose and amylopectins. Amylose is a linear polymer in which essentially all of the Anhydroglucose units are linked through 1, 4-a glucosidic bonds. Amylopectins have a highly branched structure.
They are larger polymers than Amylose. Starch is essentially a group of carbohydrates known as Polysaccharides i.e. multiple molecules of sugar. It is a mixture of two polysaccharides, Amylose (10-20%) and Amylopectin (80-90%). Risistarch®, in its native and modified form is used extensively in the food, pharmaceutical, textile, paper, adhesive and a host of other industries.
Starch is also modified to suit the individual user requirements and hence known as chemical starches. Risistarch can also be converted into a range of starch derivatives such as Liquid Glucose,Dextrose Monohydrate,Dextrose Anhydrous, Maltodextrin, Sorbitol etc.
Risistarch® finds application in the food industries. also used as a diluent and moisture sorting medium to protect active powders from deleterious effects of moisture.
as a diluent in baking powder and in confectioner's sugar.
Dusting powder in bakery industry.
as moulding beds as a processing aid in the manufacture of gum candies, centers and other cast pies. It is also used as a
Thickening or gelling agent & processing aids and in Baking industry-involving starch as a component of flour.
Used as an additive to modify the textural properties of wheat flour, sweet goods and crackers.
As a stabilizers in salad dressings.
Used in the manufacture of gum candies.
In keeping with industry standards, Corn (Maize) Starch is packed in High Density Poly Ethylene (HDPE) bags of 50 kgs. capacity. Alternatively, Risistarch® is also available in 25 kg HDPE bags/paper bags for special purposes like export, depending on specific requirements of customers.
