Tapioca starch, an important and indispensable raw material in our lives
In nature, Starch is found in tubers, seeds, and fruits of plants. 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 and more important and essential applications in industry, agriculture… it is estimated that there are more than 4 thousand applications.
Commonly used and commercially valuable natural starches mainly include tapioca starch (cassava), potato starch, corn starch (corn) and wheat starch. However, the composition and properties of tapioca starch are similar to potato starch and much better than corn starch and wheat starch. But, in terms of price, potato starch usually 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. In addition, cassava usually does not use genetically modified technology (GMO), it is safer for health.
Food ingredients do not contain GMO
Cornstarch is high in GMOs and potato starch, when processed, also contains some GMOs. Therefore, people choose Tapioca Starch instead of potato starch or cornstarch to prepare food, because tapioca starch does not contain GMO.
Applications of Tapioca Starch in food starch and other industries:
Increases the solid content in canned soups, ice cream, fruit preserves, and pharmaceuticals.
Binds products and prevents drying during cooking processes such as sauces and meat preservation…
Use the high water retention properties of starch such as in creams, baking powders…
Sizing the warp thread to reduce thread breakage and splitting on the loom (Modified starch is more suitable for this application)
Used in printing and dyeing on fabrics:
Thickens the dye and acts as a color carrier. Sizing finished fabric to improve fabric stiffness and volume
Using thickening properties, used in soups, baby foods, sauces, dipping sauces…
