Native starch is a pure form of starch which is tasteless, odorless and white in color. It is derived from various sources, such as tapioca, rice, potato, corn, amylose, maize, wheat, etc. Native starch is easily available in the market in both powdered and gel form at reasonable prices. It offers thickening, gelling, moisture retention and antistaling properties, owing to which native starch finds applications in various end-use industries ranging from food, paper, textile and cosmetic to chemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical.
In the food industry, native starch has gained prominence as a thickener, stabilizer and dough binder. Due to these properties, it is extensively used in the preparation of creamy spreads and fillings, dairy products, dry mix soups, sauces, salad dressings, custards, processed meat, canned goods, confectionery and bakery items. Some of the other end-users which rely on native starch are cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries where it is utilized for manufacturing body and hand cleansing products, hair care products, etc. and in the formulation of tablets, excipients, and capsule diluents, respectively. Further, native starch is readily replacing modified starch as it can be integrated with other label-friendly ingredients. For instance, a blend of tapioca and potato starch is used to prepare sauces as well as some hydrocolloids to achieve the required texture and stability. Due to the aforementioned factors, the market is projected to reach a volume of more than 95 Million Tons by 2023.
