Starch is a carbohydrate formed naturally in very large quantities. It is found in tubers, seeds, and fruits of various plants. Starch provides plants with energy during dormancy and germination. It is also the most important source of energy for animals and humans. Carbohydrates play a vital role in our lives. Statistical data shows that today starch has more than four thousand different applications.
Commonly used and commercially valuable starches mainly include: potato starch, corn starch, wheat starch and tapioca starch. From the comparison of these starches, we know that the composition and properties of tapioca starch are almost similar to potato starch and much better than corn starch and wheat starch. In addition, in terms of price, potato starch costs much more than tapioca starch. With attractive characteristics and price advantages, there is currently a clearly growing demand for tapioca starch all over the world. At the same time, the general drive for health has created increased attention and desire for foods that do not use gel-modified technology.
